Friends, family and co-workers of Leonie Scott gathered to remember her life on April 26.

Mourners gathered at St. John Missionary Baptist Church to pay their respects to Scott. Scott had attended this church since her birth.

“We’re all feeling the same pain,” said Keith Cromartie, Scott’s boyfriend. “We should all come together.”

Cromartie, who was helping to organize the memorial, said that even in death, his girlfriend was keeping control of the situation.

Scott was found dead April 17 near Skyline College. The exact cause of death is still under investigation, but it appears to be a suicide.

“She always smiled,” said Deandre Roberson, a co-worker and friend of Scott. Roberson said Scott always had a positive demeanor. “Her aura was nothing but positive. She tried to keep everyone in a good mood.”

“Keith always brought out the best of her,” said Bryan Fangonilo, a friend of Scott and Cromartie. He went on to say that the relationship between Scott and Cromartie was true love. “You look at the two of them; it was like they were meant to be.” Fangonilo said that Scott was always calm and collected, but most importantly an honest person. “We lost an angel. She left us too soon.”
