DALLAS — The body of North Texas missionary Jean Arnwine has been returned to Dallas.

Arnwine, 48, suffered fatal internal injuries when the clinic she was working in collapsed in Haiti. She was providing eye care with the mission team from Highland Park United Methodist Church.

A private jet carrying her body arrived Saturday night from the Caribbean island of Guadeloupe, where she died before making it into surgery. 

Arnwine's funeral is scheduled for Wednesday afternoon at 2 p.m. at the church.
