Memorial Biography

Sabrina Kershner Evans, age 55, of Sanford, Florida, passed away peacefully on April 9, 2021 with her loved ones by her side. Born on August 11, 1965, in Starke, Florida to M.F. and Christine Kershner, Sabrina is preceded in death by her mother, Christine. She is survived by her fiancé, Steve Blount; her father, M.F. Kershner (Fran); her sisters Sandy Greth (Ed), Sheri Peterson (Brad), along with niece, Kristen Cline (Donovan) and nephew Jackson Caldwell, and great-nephews, Clayton Cline, Samuel Cline, Conner Cline and Derrick Cline; her former husband, Ed Evans; and her faithful, loving Chihuahua, Peanut. Sabrina grew up in Longwood, Florida, where she played competitive golf at Rolling Hills Country Club, discovered her love of dogs, and enjoyed listening to music and teaching her little sister and friends dance routines. She became very active in theater at Lyman High School, was a 4-letter member of the first girls’ golf team and graduated in 1983. She went on to attend Florida Southern College in Lakeland where she met many of her lifelong friends, enjoyed the college social life and graduated in three and a half years, magna cum laude , with a degree in journalism. After college she found work with several companies, but always yearned to follow her father in radio. She landed an interview with the program director at WLOQ-FM, Orlando’s jazz station and was subsequently offered a weekend position. She kept her other weekday job, working 7 days a week for 2 years until she was offered the midday show. After a number of years as “Middays with Sabrina”, she joined Bob Church as co-host of the station’s morning show. Throughout her career at WLOQ, Sabrina enjoyed interviewing many of the countries’ famous jazz artists, writing for the station’s “Smooth Jazz” magazine and mingling with her listeners at concerts and events. To local jazz enthusiasts, Sabrina became a household name. In 1998, Sabrina married Ed Evans, retired from WLOQ, and traveled all over the world, spending a great deal of time in the Dominican Republic. She fell in the love with the Caribbean culture and people, learning to speak fluent Spanish while visiting there. During that time, she quickly picked up the game of tennis and became extremely competitive in the ladies’ league at The Country Club of Heathrow. Sabrina was the dog mom of many great dogs over the years and was known by many as the “Dog Whisperer”. Her love for furry, four-legged canines led her to start her own dog boarding business called “The Woofdorf”. She genuinely loved caring for animals, and they loved her. The last five years of her life were spent in the company of her wonderful fiancé, Steve. They spent several years traveling to Panama, building friendships and exploring the country. Prior to her passing, they had made plans to move there and live in a beautiful marina on a boat. They sailed through the Panama Canal on their boat in 2020 and remained in Coronado, on the Pacific Ocean, for eight months during the quarantine, where Sabrina befriended many animals and became a beloved presence on the local marine radio network. Sabrina will be best remembered for her compassion, great sense of humor, generosity, kindness and her beautiful and adventurous spirit. A Celebration of Life is scheduled for Saturday, June 19, 2021 at the Maitland Civic Center, 641 Maitland Ave S., Maitland, Florida from 5 – 7pm.
