She was exceedingly proud of her son, a sergeant in the United States Army. Daughter, mother, partner, and friend, Sabrina was vibrant, strong-willed, and kind. Sabrina led a life filled with love and joy, she could often be found spending time with her very close sister and best friend, Kim, and her son Brandon, one of the joys of Sabrina’s life. She was a passionate animal lover who, along with her partner, loved spending time with their many animals. Full of life and laughter, Sabrina was an undeniably wonderful woman, and she will be sorely missed.
