She was the victim in an apparent murder-suicide involving Daniel Shoemake, 21. Both were classmates at San Diego State University and were graduates of Amador Valley High School.
Miss David was born in Oakland on Sept. 14, 1988. She was scheduled to graduate from San Diego State this week with a bachelor's degree in Journalism/Media Studies and a minor in International Relations. She was active in the university community as a "Lady Rho" in the Alpha Psi Rho mentorship program.
This past summer, she traveled to Costa Rica, where she volunteered at a sea turtle refuge and was in a Spanish immersion program. She was looking forward to a trip to Ecuador with her mother next month to celebrate her graduation.
She is survived by her mother and stepfather, Lorie and Mando Alemania of Pleasanton, and her sisters Valeri Alemania of Pleasanton and Rachel David of New York City. She was preceded in death by her father, Glenn David. She is also survived by her grandmother, great-grandparents and many aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Friends and family are invited to celebrate Miss David's life at a memorial and funeral tomorrow at St. Elizabeth Seton Catholic Church, 4001 Stoneridge Drive in Pleasanton, with visitation starting at 2:30 p.m. and a memorial and Mass following. A reception will be held afterward in the parish hall at St. Augustine Catholic Church, 3999 Bernal Ave. in Pleasanton. Burial will be private.
