Beautiful Doyin Sarah Fagbenro, 25 was killed in a hit and run accident in Lagos. Her funeral was held at All Nations Church in Bedford on Saturday, January 23. Mourners wore red, her favourite colour. Her heartbroken mother Dupe, a hospital pharmacist, told the Standard:
“She was beautiful, intelligent, adventurous and caring. She was absolutely everything to us. She had a very bright future but it has ended in this tragedy.”
The straight-A student, the eldest of four siblings, grew up in Canning Town and graduated in law from Queen Mary’s University in east London in 2013.
In a moving tribute written by her family she was described as having an “adventurous nature and fierce independence”
“Her relentless determination was an inspiration to so many, yet never deterred from her playfulness and love for life; she loved to laugh, party and smile.”
“Even through her most testing times she never lost her sense of humour and could always be trusted to lift the spirits of those around her.”
