KATY, Texas (KXAN) - An Austin college track star was laid to rest on Friday.
Fatima Barrie was stabbed by a stranger earlier this month after leaving a club in Downtown Austin. She died three weeks later.
Barrie was a junior at Huston-Tillotson University. She was also a decorated track star and wanted to be a pediatrician.
Fatima's funeral was held Friday near her family's home in Katy.
"My sister is a very fun loving, very energetic, carefree person," said her brother, Rodrick Watson. "She is someone who always found the positives in negatives. She was a beautiful person ... She enjoyed life. She enjoyed pursing her passion, which was running track.
"Even in spite of our loss as a family, we wanted to celebrate the person she was and the spirit that she had and we want that to continue to live on."
