There is no requirement to attend funerals. It is a time to see relatives that you haven't seen in a long time and may not live to see again. I was surprised that my cousin drove 3 hours (one way) to attend my father's visitation. Their daughter wedding's was a couple day earlier and I didn't believe that they would be able to attend.

If it was important to you, you have the money in the brokerage account. Your decision is that it isn't worth the cost to attend and that is okay.

Send a condolance card and possibly flowers. The cost of flowers could be shared with your parents. If you know your aunt well enough a call would be nice.
