Angela Gomez: Known for her sense of humor

RIVERSIDE, Calif. - Angela "Angie" Gomez was a "fun-loving, sweet young lady with a great sense of humor" who loved the stage, the Riverside Unified School District said in a statement.

Gomez attended Riverside Polytechnic High School in California and was a member of the class of 2015. She acted on stage with the Riverside Children's Theater, was involved in the middle and high school choir, and was a cheerleader for the high school, the school district said.

She challenged herself academically with honors and Advanced Placement courses, the school district said. And she "was always seen with a smile on her face whenever she was on campus."
"Angie was a loyal friend who loved her family and will be forever missed by all those who knew her," the district said.

Her English teacher and cheer coach Lupe Avila said the school was "deeply saddened by the loss of a wonderful young woman who had her whole life ahead of her."
