The body of Sen. Dianne Feinstein arrived at San Francisco International Airport Saturday, returning home after her death early Friday in Washington, D.C.
Because of her stature, she received military honors and was onboard a military flight.
The plane left Andrews Air Force Base at approximately 4 p.m. Eastern time. Accompanying the late senator on the flight was her daughter Katherine Feinstein, her chief of staff James Sauls and former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
The senator died early Friday morning of reported natural causes at her home in Washington, D.C. She was 90.
“There are few women who can be called senator, chairman, mayor, wife, mom and grandmother,” said Sauls in a statement on Friday. “Senator Feinstein was a force of nature who made an incredible impact on our country and her home state.”
There are no firm plans yet for a funeral service or a public viewing in California. Her office said those details were still being decided as of Saturday evening.
