Sabrina Johnson Obituary

Sabrina Carol Johnson was born on October 6, 1963 to Carolyn and the late James Christian in Hampton, VA. She was a graduate of Phoebus High School, Class of 1982, Hampton University, B.S. in physics, 1986, and also pursued graduate studies in engineering at the University of Virginia.

 In 1974, Sabrina accepted the Lord as her Savior and was baptized at Zion Baptist Church. She grew up as a child of Zion and participated in the Youth Choir, Sunday School, Vacation Bible School and other activities into her adulthood.

 Sabrina and Kevin met at Phoebus and were together since the ages of 16 and 17. They were married on December 20, 1986, established a home first and then a family.

 They have always been Sabrina and KJ one cohesive unit.

 Sabrina had a 17-year career at Newport News Shipbuilding, and simultaneously opened a full-service bridal shop, Affordable Elegance. She left the workforce and entrepreneurship to dedicate her time to being a full-time mother and wife.

 An active member of the Phoebus PTA and the Phoebus HS Alumni Association; she was always willing to volunteer to help organize events, fundraise, create graphic designs, and whatever time and skills she could provide. Some of her Phoebus Pham were asked to describe her in one word, and kind was at the top of the list, along with a beautiful and caring person that would speak her mind. She was all of those things and more.

 Sabrina’s declining health did not stop her from being active on the good days and doing what she enjoyed most, cooking for her family. She also enjoyed entertaining and making others feel special on birthdays and holidays.

 It is not an easy task to summarize her life, but when the time drew near for her to depart this earth she was spiritually ready and unafraid. Wife, daughter, mother, sister, niece, cousin, aunt, friend; she will always be in our hearts.

 Sabrina is survived by her husband of 37 years Kevin B. Johnson, son Orlandis, daughter KeVonne, mother Carolyn Y. Perry, sisters Trina Coleman (Willie), Tonya Yates, Kim Christian, nephews Nicholas, Xavier, Patrick, Dustin, niece Veronica and brother-in-law Ronald Johnson (Rose). She also leaves a host of relatives and friends.
