Sarina was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and had one child, a son, and two grandchildren. She loved spending time with her grandchildren more than anything. She was in a relationship with a man named Robert Reiss at the time of her death. Unfortunately, not much else is known about Sarina’s life leading up to her death.
In May of 2011, Sarina was found seriously injured in a Phoenix, AZ intersection.
On the night of May 16, 2011, Sarina was found with serious injuries lying in the intersection of 27th Drive and West Highland Avenue in Phoenix, AZ. She was transported to St. Joseph Hospital where she succumbed to her injuries six days later, on May 22, 2011.
