A subway train arrives at the L'Enfant Metro Station, which is part of the public mass transit network for Washington, Tuesday, Jan. 13, 2015. The transit network in the nation's capital, remains hobbled after an electrical malfunction that filled a L'Enfant Metro subway station with smoke, killing one woman and sending dozens of people to hospitals.

WASHINGTON — 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.
