A memorial service is scheduled for an Albuquerque woman who died after an in-flight accident on a Southwest Airlines plane that made an emergency landing in Philadelphia.

The service for Jennifer Riordan is set for 6 p.m. Sunday at her alma mater, the University of New Mexico.

The 43-year-old bank executive and mother of two died Tuesday from injuries suffered on a flight that was headed to Dallas from New York’s LaGuardia Airport.

One of the plane’s engines reportedly exploded early in the flight, sending shrapnel through a window.

Passengers say Riordan was partially blown out of a damaged window on the jet.

She later died at a hospital from blunt impact trauma.

Riordan served as vice president of community relations for Wells Fargo’s New Mexico operations.
