NEW YORK CITY, N.Y. -- It has now been one week since the deadly Metro-North train derailment in the Bronx. Four were killed, more than 65 others were injured.

A funeral service was held in Queens yesterday for one of those victims, 35-year-old Kisook Ahn.

Dozens attended mass at the church where the South Korea native regularly taught children her native language.

Ahn worked as a nurse for severely ill children at the Sunshine Children's home in Ossining. She was coming home from an overnight shift when the train derailed.

"She was very nice, and she was very loved by the children and by all her co workers she will be missed by all of us badly for sure,” family friend Hyuno Kong said.

“It's quite a loss for somebody who was so well prepared, and so dedicated to doing something about meeting the needs of where she was now working at Sunshine," said Catherine Alicia Georges, the Chair of Nursing at Lehman College.
