The funeral for Ahn Ki-sook, the Korean nurse who died when a train derailed in the Bronx district of New York City on Dec. 1, took place in a Catholic church in Woodside, Queens on Saturday.

The New York Daily News said 100 friends and family of the 35-year-old came to remember "a hard worker who moved to the U.S. from [Korea] to learn how to better care for her autistic nephew."
 
Ahn moved to the U.S. in December 2009 and earned a master's degree there. She worked as a nurse at a nursing home in Ossining, New York. At the time of the accident, she was returning from a night shift.

She moved to the U.S. on a work visa and was waiting for a green card.
