According to the obituary, Sarah was a student at Mount Royal University and had volunteered with the organization Making Changes.

It describes Rabik’s love for Disneyland and says her home was filled with the memories of her many Disney trips.

“Sarah was perhaps best known for her style,” the obituary reads. “Her platinum blonde bob sat atop the most perfectly coordinated outfits.”

“Even her hiking boots had a pink stripe that had to be coordinated with her hiking outfits.”

The obituary also says Sarah had a rigid sense of right and wrong and believed everyone should be treated with respect and kindness.
