Sabrina Marie Tylee

Community & Student Services



On Friday January 22, 2010 we were shocked to learn of the death of Sabrina Tylee in a snowmobiling accident on Carp Lake Road near McLeod Lake.


Sabrina was only 32. She had been working in CNC’s Community and Student Services division as an Administrative Coordinator for almost a year, in a leave replacement position. She was vibrant and energetic, with a huge smile and a welcome for everyone who entered the office. As one visitor commented: "That girl has sunshine in her veins!" We will miss her.


A memorial service was held at Sacred Heart Cathedral on January 30, followed by a lunch at the College after the service, with over 400 people in attendance.


The family is in the process of setting up a Trust fund for Sabrina’s children. If you would like to learn more about this, please contact Jessica Erickson (email


Prince George Citizen, Feb. 3, 2010


It is with crushing sadness we announce the passing of Sabrina Marie Tylee.


Loving mommy to her "little tribe" Alyssa (13), Justin (11), Jasmine (9), Annabelle (7) and Sophia (4).Cherished only child of her father, Verne Solonas. Cherished daughter of Anita Vallee (Bernia); beloved granddaughter of Josie Tylee. Devoted sister to Wiona George (Darren), Jodie Ware (Edwin Berle) and Jamie Ware (Josh Wilson); Sabrina was the oldest in a beautiful circle of sisters and her loss will be immeasurable. She was also a proud auntie to Ethan, Taylor, Emma and Sydney. Sabrina also leaves behind her soul mate, Warner Jakumeit.


Sabrina is survived by heartbroken aunts, uncles, many cousins and countless friends. She affected so many lives in her 32 years and 30 days. Sabrina lit up a room with her grace, intelligence, beauty, kindness and strength. She loved to dance, laugh, learn, cuddle and could magically kiss away owies.


Now she's gone to fly with the angels and guide her children from above. We are left to mourn as this tragedy is ours to bear, but may we have the Creator's grace and strength to remember Sabrina with joy and gratitude in our hearts for the privilege of knowing and loving her even for a short while. We love you Bina and will miss you forever and always.


A service to celebrate Sabrina's life will be held on Saturday January 30th at 11 am at Sacred Heart Cathedral in Prince George with internment to follow. A luncheon will be held at the College of New Caledonia immediately afterwards.

Sun Run 2010


Sabrina was in training for the Vancouver Sun Run 2010 before her untimely death. Here's a beautiful photo of four generations of family members taking part in the Sun Run and wearing "In Memory" t-shirts in Sabrina's memory.
