Just four days after Margot Kidder died at age 69, her remains are now at home with family, RadarOnline can exclusively report.

“She has been cremated, and she’s home,” a source told Radar.

Though family members will hold services for the Superman star, the exact plans are still to be determined.

“Margot had given numerous people—friends, family and people the family doesn’t even know – thoughts on what she wanted as her final wishes,” added the source. “So that is creating complications."

Kidder, who the source said considered herself to be an "atheist," will likely be remembered in a memorial rather than a church service.

The Hollywood star struggled with health issues throughout her life, but loved ones are still "in shock" over the sudden death.

“Everyone is in shock. Margot kept to herself, but had a lot of friends,” said the source. “And everyone close to her is in the dark about what happened. There are a lot of unanswered questions.”

Her death is still being investigated, though officials do not suspect foul play.

The Superman actress was found unconscious inside her Livingston, Montana home on Mother’s Day, May 13.

According to the 911 audio, Kidder had “no pulse” and was not breathing when emergency responders arrived to the scene.

After rising to fame as Lois Lane in the Superman film franchise, Kidder disappeared from Los Angeles. Having struggled with substance abuse and bipolar disorder and becoming homeless for a period of time, she became an outspoken advocate for mental health awareness.

She was also politically active in Montana as a supporter of Bernie Sanders’ presidential bid and stood alongside protestors against the Dakota Access Pipeline at Standing Rock in North Dakota.

“We hope people remember her as more than just an actress,” continued the source. “She was an activist and strong feminist. She had moxie and showed what it meant to speak truth to power. She was an incredible woman.”
