A bystander captured the encounter in a now-viral video, which showed Turner yelling that she was being harassed and that she just wanted to go home.

She yelled “I’m pregnant,” which police later said wasn’t true. The video showed Delacruz standing over Turner before he appeared to back away. Then, the five shots sounded.

Attorney Ben Crump, who is representing Turner’s family, said that funeral directors had to reconstruct the 44-year-old woman’s face, because she was shot in the cheek in addition to shots in the abdomen and chest. Official autopsy results from Harris County have not been released.

Turner’s injuries were not visible, and funeral goers approached the casket, remarking how beautiful she looked. She laid in a white dress, with a lavender scarf tied in a bow around her neck. A bouquet of purple and pink roses and lilies cascaded over the lower half of her body.

“She looked like herself,” said Johnson, who works in a law office.

Other mourners seemed encouraged by the songs of the Lilly Grove Missionary Baptist Church Choir. When a cantor sang, “I’ll fight your battles if you would only trust me,” dozens stood up with cries of praise.

Turner’s daughter, Chelsie Rubin, later read the church a poem “Remember Me,” written by Anthony Dowson. She stood next to her brother, Cameron January, and told of a mother who always supported them in their endeavors.

Turner previously was a unit coordinator at Houston Methodist San Jacinto Hospital in Baytown before taking a leave because of her health, her family said. Turner is scheduled to be buried on Saturday in Fayette, Miss

“It’s really hard for us, but I know she’s looking down and she’s watching us and she’s proud,” Rubin said. “She’s proud of how strong we’re being. I love you, mom. I love you so much.”

Antoinette Dorsey-James, who described herself as a “second mom” to Turner, said that Turner, scheduled to be buried on Saturday in Fayette, Miss., had a good relationship with God and is already reunited with him in Heaven. Her message of mental health awareness will continue, she said.

“Pam was only existing on this earth,” Dorsey-James said. “Now, she lives.”
