COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (CBS4)– Friends and family gathered in Colorado Springs on Saturday to remember Jennifer Markovsky, one of the three victims killed in the Planned Parenthood attack on Nov. 27.

Markovsky, 35, a mother of two was accompanying a friend to the clinic when she was gunned down.

Her husband joined other dignitaries like Colorado Springs Mayor John Suthers at Holy Theophany Orthodox Church to honor her memory.

“In the last days of her life, Jennifer gave me a great 36th birthday party, with a homemade Russian napoleon cake,” Paul Markovsky said. “However, Jennifer did not make it to her 36th birthday one month later.”

Markovsky, originally from Hawaii, made her home in Colorado Springs for the last seven years. She was married to a service member, who has deployed twice.
