We are deeply saddened to hear of her untimely passing,” said PVAMU President George C. Wright. “The University extends our condolences to her family and friends during this difficult time.”
After a private family service, Arzola will be laid to rest Monday in Woodlawn Cemetery. Vazquez Funeral Home, 1805 Huge Oaks, Houston, TX 77055, is in charge of the arrangements.
