On August 1, 2007 in Ventura, Calif., a beautiful, bubbly baby girl was born to Jacobe Hale Sr. and Sabrina Cole. Her parents named her, Jabria Corenthia Hale.
Jabria was born with a rare metabolic disorder and so her family was told from the beginning that the journey of her little life would be a difficult and short one. Jabria seemed determined to surpass the odds.
Jabria attended Loudon Elementary and later McAuliffe Elementary school where she loved all her teachers and classmates. She enjoyed art, making friends, sharing potato chips, and watching The Chipmunks and Spongebob on television. She was a fan of Michael Jackson and loved to dance to his music.
On Tuesday, September 19, 2017, at the age of 10, this sweet little angel was called home to rest. Even through all her struggles, she managed a smile. Her family was so proud of the strength she displayed through her difficult times. She will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her.
Jabria leaves to cherish her precious memories: her parents; Jacobe J. Hale, Sr. of Okolona and Sabrina D. Cole of Bakersfield, Calif., three brothers; Sean P. Biggs Jr. of Bakersfield, Calif., Jacobe J. Hale Jr. and Jayden A. Hale both of Okolona, one sister; Jayla I. Hale of Okolona, grandparents; Ricky and Diane Hunter of Santa Barbara, Calif. and Johnny Hale Sr. of Okolona, great-grandma; Daisy L. Dumas, four uncles; Johnny Hale Jr. of Okolona, Jason Patton of San Bernadino, Calif., Ricky Cole of Hollywood, Calif. and Steven Hale of Las Vegas, NV, four aunts; Kiana Tate of Tennessee, Diamond Bivens of Irving, Texas, Connie Hunter of Santa Barbara, Calif., Katonya Collins of Clarksdale, Miss. and a host of other aunts, uncles, cousins and loving friends.
