Sabrina Rená Roarke


On September 10, 2019, Sabrina Rená Roarke, age 56, passed into her heavenly home, after a brief illness. Born on August 13, 1963, she is the beloved daughter of Patricia Owen. 

Preceding her in death was her father Tommy Roarke, and maternal grandparents, Billy and Edith Owen, and paternal grandparents, Eva and Willard Peake.

Sabrina is survived by her daughter, Amanda Haskins (Brandon), her son, Thomas Haskins (Mary), and the son of her heart, Caleb Gunnell. Sabrina has two adored grandchildren, Edward and Alyssa Haskins. 

Left to mourn her passing are Sabrina's siblings, Tony Roark (Susan), Phillip Roark (Robin), Deneatta Roarke, Robin Blair, and Roblyn Perkins (Brandon). She had 17 nieces and nephews, 9 great nieces and nephews, and numerous cousins and friends, who all loved BB for her radiant spirit and fierce heart.

Sabrina was kind and nurturing to all of God's creatures, loved dancing, and made instant friends everywhere. In her final days, she was surrounded by the love of many to lift her upwards to her next journey.

Per her wishes, a private service will be held for the family. Family and friends will be received at 6300 Telegraph Rd Hurt VA at various times and again on Sunday September 15, 2019 between 1-3 and a celebration of her life will be scheduled at a later date.
