A funeral is set for 10 a.m. Tuesday at Kerrville Funeral Home, with burial at Sunset Cemetery in Mountain Home, according to the obituary.

Texas A&M University officials issued a statement Saturday morning that said the Aggie family was mourning Ahuero's death.

"Her desire to become a psychiatric nurse was a true calling to serve those in greatest need," the statement said.

A Texas A&M University website said there were 1,528 active, self-reported cases of the virus among students, faculty members and staff as of Wednesday, the last date for which figures were posted. The number of active cases on campus was a 176% increase from the number of cases reported two weeks prior.
