A joint funeral for the four Pompano Beach family members who died when their car plunged into a Deerfield Beach lake Jan. 2, will be held 10 a.m. Saturday at First Baptist Church of Fort Lauderdale, 301 E. Broward Blvd.
Friends and family will gather to remember Nadege Theodore, 37, her 15-year-old daughter Lyne Theodore, her 16-year-old nephew Guivens Daverman and her 20-year-old step-sister Sandalie Jean-Baptiste.
The family was on their way back from an outing at Town Center at Boca Raton mall when their Lexus sports utility vehicle was involved in a three-car crash. The SUV careened off Interstate 95 and landed in the lake.
Divers plucked Nadege Theodore, Daverman, and Jean-Baptiste from the lake immediately. Daverman and Nadege Theodore were pronounced dead at the hospital. Lyne Theodore’s body was found the following morning after police learned from family she was also in the car.
Jean-Baptiste died Sunday at Broward Health North.
A candlelight vigil was held Sunday in memory of Daverman and Lyne Theodore, who were both sophomores at Blanche Ely High School.
Edmonde Emmanuel, Nadege Theodore’s sister, said the family is pulling together and wants “everyone to remember them.”
“We are all going to miss them,” she said.
There will be a viewing from 5 to 9 p.m. Friday at First Baptist Church.
