God bestowed upon the world many special people, and Sabrina was one of them. Her love for God justified in her a zest for life and love for her family. Many gifts were given to Sabrina. She was introduced to Christ at an early age. She would sing at home with her mother, Delores, and her whole family. Sabrina also accepted Christ at an early age where she worshipped in the home based church that her grandmother, Marianna Burnes, founded.
Sabrina graduated high school in Springfield, IL. She continued her education thru college and medical school in St. Louis, MO, which later in life helped her to navigate her illness and health by becoming an advocate for bone marrow and stem cell research. She was a recipient from one of her children, Courtney DuPree, a perfect match. During her journey, Sabrina found a greater calling and received her Master’s Degree of Ministry. While abiding and spreading the word, she then created a prayer line with her cousin, Mahogany. They would talk for hours and hours and marvel about the Lord.
She kept her faith in God and continued to move forward. Pursuing to start her own business, Sabrina developed and produced her soap care line with “natural” ingredients for all skin types, which became very popular with family and friends throughout her hometown.
Sabrina enjoyed shopping, wearing her beautiful hats and enjoyed taking care of her plants and cats.
Sabrina was a devoted mother and grandmother, a loving daughter, special sister, aunt, niece, cousin, and friend.
Through her journey, her faith, hope and spirit never wavered. She had a great sense of humor and a big beautiful smile, that would light up the world. Sabrina has been a dedicated member of Shekinah Glory Ministries, presiding Pastor Gregory Tyus of Springfield, IL.

Courtney, Quentine & Jordan
A limb has fallen from the family tree.
I keep hearing a voice that says, “Grieve not for me.
Remember the best times, the laughter, the song.
The good life I lived while I was strong.
Continue my heritage, I’m counting on you.
Keep smiling and surely the sun will shine through.
My mind is at ease, my soul is at rest.
Remembering all, how truly I was blessed.
Continue traditions, no matter how small.
Go on with your life, don’t worry about falls.
I miss you all dearly, so keep up your chin.
Until the day comes we’re together again.”
With Love, Mom
