Malak Hariri, whose first name means "angel" in Arabic, always had a smile on her face, loved ones said.
Hundreds of family members and friends gathered in North Hollywood on Friday in memory of the 19-year-old, who was one of the five young people killed in a fiery car crash in Burbank last Saturday.
At her funeral service, loved ones remembered her as full of life.
"She's our smile maker," said her uncle, Housni Hariri, adding that she was an animal advocate who loved her two cats. "She was happy since childhood until the day she died."
Others remembered Malak Hariri as a respectful friend who played water polo in high school and loved dancing.
Before the service, Malak Hariri's friend, Chelsea Mirto, passed out T-shirts to peers that bore the phrase, "Rest in paradise, our angel" on them.
"She was just the sweetest person, full of joy," Mirto said.
