Our beautiful baby girl, Sabreenah Mae, went happily to sleep Friday night in her bed next to her sister’s bed and awoke in Jesus’ arms on Saturday, April 2, 2016.
Sabreenah Mae came to us 3 weeks earlier than expected on December 8, 2014. She was only 5lbs 11 ounces but took up a much bigger space in our hearts. We were worried that she would be sick because she came early but she was very healthy. She triumphed through being small and grew into a very happy energetic little girl. She had a wonderful personality. It was spunky, happy, high spirited, and independent. She was only 15 months old but knew what she wanted and how to get it. She was so full of life.
Her favorite times were spent playing in her house with her big sister, Savannah. They played all the time. She would play in her little car she got for her 1st birthday. Savannah would dress her and put her in the baby stroller. She had recently began dancing to music that would be playing in the house. Always giggling and laughing. Savannah enjoyed showing off her little sister wherever they were. She carried her as much as possible but when Sabreenah had had enough she let her know. She also enjoyed eating and attempted to eat everything. But she always made sure she shared with her puppies Cash (recently deceased), Ruby and Dakota. They were very good protectors of her.
She also enjoyed her times just snuggling with momma and dada. It was a morning ritual for her to call out “momma, dada” when she awoke in the mornings. Nothing filled their hearts more than to see her smiling face and to hear those words.
She was learning more words every day and spoke them frequently. She would walk around the house saying, “Bumpa,Bumpa”. She called her sister, Anna and her Grandma, NaNa. She was always waving hi, bye and blowing kisses. She liked talking to Grammy on the phone. She would say hi, hi and you could hear the excitement in her voice.
She had a lot of people who adored her and she them. When she would go to Grammy and Bumpa’s she would run right to them putting her arms up for hugs. She had a playroom there where she and her sister would play and read books while sitting in her little Elmo chair. When she was born they started her on a collection of giraffes so she was always surrounded by them.
She spent a lot of time at her Grandma’s house too where she again played hard and enjoyed her little life.
She knew right from wrong but pushed the” wrong” button often. She would look right in your eyes and do what she knew she wasn’t supposed to do and then laugh about it. . She enjoyed butchering NaNa’s plant by pulling the leaves off and then running off laughing about it. She also thought it was funny to mess with Bumpa’s tv.
She was our little stinker. It was hard to be mad at her because she was so cute when she did it.
She attended Little Blessings Day Care where the teachers thoroughly enjoyed her. Whenever Momma and Dada would pick her up she would look at them and run away because she liked playing at day care. There will be a very empty spot in the nursery without Sabreenah Mae.
She is survived and deeply missed by her parents Stephany and Anthony Woller and her big sister, Savannah. Along with her maternal grandparents Linda and Kregg Lukasko and paternal grandparents Tammy Woller and Larry (Edith) Lipke. She has several aunts and uncles, Stacey Conklin, Whitney (Cameron) Schumacher, Beckie (Don) Genrich, Amanda (Nick) Woller, Dani Woller, Jeffrey and Austin Lipke. Her cousins are Caleb and Zachary Genrich and Amelia Anderson and a new baby Schumacher which she was not able to meet. Great Grandparents and numerous great aunts, uncles and cousins. She was also blessed to have very close friends of her parents that love her very much.
She was preceeded in death by Great Grandpa Kittel, Great Grandpa Gerber, Great Grandma Gerber (G.G), Great Grandpa Conklin, Great Grandpa Woller and Great Grandpa Lipke and a cousin Andrew Ninnemann. Also a very close friend of the family, young Castan Schisel, whom she can now play with every day in heaven.
Funeral services will take place at Brainard Funeral Home –Everest Chapel, 5712 Memorial Court, Weston on Friday April 8. Visitation will begin at 3:30 pm with a short service at 4:30 pm.
Words cannot express the pain and emptiness that we are feeling with the loss of Sabreenah Mae. She will be forever in our hearts. Take care of her G.G., Castan and Andrew we are counting on you.
Until we meet again hold onto the LOVE we have for you our precious baby
