WEST HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Church officials say a memorial service for a Connecticut woman who was lost at sea during a fishing trip with her son will no longer take place.

A spokeswoman for the Roman Catholic Hartford Archdiocese confirmed Sunday that there’s no Mass scheduled in memory of 54-year-old Linda Carman at St. Thomas the Apostle Church in West Hartford.

An attorney representing 22-year-old Nathan Carman, Linda’s son, previously said he was planning a service for his mother for Wednesday.

Nathan Carman was rescued by a freighter about 100 miles off the coast of Martha’s Vineyard after the boat he and his mother were on sank during the weekend of Sept. 17.

Linda Carman’s sisters released a statement questioning the memorial service with the sinking still under investigation by multiple police agencies.
