Ingrid (Itty) Ainsworth, 66, died in the crash with her husband, Disney Ainsworth, 68.
Their identities were made public by Miami-Date police earlier this week after their bodies were found Monday, 11 days after the building collapsed.
Ms. Ainsworth, Nee Felling, originally from Montreal, and her husband are from Australia, where they lived for almost 20 years before returning to Florida, where most of their families live. Mrs. Ainsworth still extended the family in Montreal.
