Dear Friends,
As you know, The Statham family lost Sabra unexpectedly this past week.  Otis, "Chip" is now widowed and has to care for their four children. Unfortunately due to the nature of Sabra's passing, the family is in need of some short-term financial support. Adjusting to life without Sabra will be very difficult, and I am hopeful that we can all pull together to help ease a few of the immediate needs so that the family can focus on what's important right now rather than logistical burdens. Thank you for considering, and should you decide to donate, thank you so much in advance: remember even a seemingly small amount can make a huge difference in a time like this.

I have included a copy of Sabra's obituary.

Sabra I. Statham October 27, 1971 March 20, 2015 Sabra I. Statham, 43, of Snow Shoe, passed away on Friday, March 20, 2015, at the Mount Nittany Medical Center in State College. Born on October 27, 1971, in Washington DC, she was the daughter of Michael Wilson and Neva S. Mullins Cook. In 1993, in Lovington, VA, she married Otis Statham III who survives at home.

Sabra was employed as a Digital Project Coordinator at Penn State. She attended the Our Lady of Victory Catholic Church in State College and the Queen of Archangel Roman Catholic Parish Church in Clarence. Sabra was a Musicologist and Violinist. She was very passionate about music. She enjoyed cooking for her family and gardening. She loved her children more than life itself.

Statham, and Frank E. Statham, all at home; and two brothers, Cecil E. Cook and his wife, Katherine Charlottesville, VA and Eli H. Cook, also of Charlottesville, VA.
