A service will be held this afternoon in memory of Flintshire vet Catherine Gowing.
The 37-year-old, who was originally from Ireland, disappeared from Mold in October last year.
Local man Clive Sharp was jailed for life in February after admitting to her murder.
Ms Gowing's colleagues at DE Evans Veterinary Practice in Mold have organised the service, which will take place at 2pm at at Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Church.
One colleague described her as a 'warm-hearted' person who was 'loved and greatly missed'.
Friends and family of Ms Gowing are also expected to attend the service.
