Following the death of junior nursing student Columbia Dyson early last week, funeral arrangements have been finalized, and details have been released to the Duquesne University community.
According to an email sent to students and faculty on Jan. 22., Duquesne will be providing busing to the funeral on Jan. 25, which will be held at 11 a.m. at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Ellicott City, Maryland. The bus will depart at 6 a.m. and students can expect to return at 5 p.m., and both breakfast and lunch will be provided with on the way to the service.
Students who would like to attend the funeral and require busing can sign up here with their name and Duquesne email, as well as include any dietary restrictions. Sign ups close at noon on Jan. 23.
Additionally calling hours will be held on Jan. 24 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Donaldson Funeral Home in Clarksville, Maryland.
The email also stated that in lieu of sending flowers, those looking to honor her memory should make donations to Variety — The Children’s Charity (of Pittsburgh), which was the local charity of Dyson’s sorority, Alpha Omicron Pi, and “near and dear to Columbia’s heart.”
Cause and manner of Dyson’s death are still yet to be determined.
