Her body will be returned to Midwood, Brooklyn, where her family lives, as early as Tuesday for her funeral. Her remains were still in the custody of the county Medical Examiner’s Office Monday afternoon, which could delay the services.

Investigators have no more missing person cases to pursue from the collapse, but will continue to search removed debris for remains.
