A woman who died earlier this week after an electrical malfunction on Washington's subway system was remembered at a memorial service as a woman of faith and family.

Carol Glover died Jan. 12 after the malfunction on the system's yellow line sent smoke spilling into a train car she was riding in. On Monday, friends and family packed a memorial service for her at her church a few blocks from the U.S. Capitol.

Born in Washington, Glover spent more than 20 years working as federal government contractor. A graduate of Drexel University in Philadelphia, she was a mother to two boys and a grandmother of three. Friends and family described her as a woman with a deep faith and a huge smile.
