The service for 34-year-old Miriam Carey is planned for Tuesday morning in Brooklyn.

The dental hygienist from Stamford, Conn., is survived by her 1-year-old daughter, who was in the vehicle during the Oct. 3 car chase through the streets of Washington.

Carey had been diagnosed with postpartum depression and psychosis. Authorities say she believed President Barack Obama was monitoring her electronically.

A public viewing and wake was held Monday at Grace Funeral Chapel, where the funeral is scheduled.

In Washington, a prayer vigil was held for her Monday on Capitol Hill.
