Sandra (Sandy) Kay Browning Trask 58, of Bruno WV left this world on August 12, 2020 at the Hubbard House Hospice in Charleston WV after a prolonged illness.
Born November 4, 1961, she was the eldest daughter of the late Bishop Van Douglas and Joyce Blankenship Browning, whom she resided with before moving into Hillcrest Health Care Center at Danville WV. Her paternal grandparents the late Reverend Van Daily and Beulah Toler Browning and maternal grandparents the late Lloyd and Nancy Grimmett Blankenship.
Sandy, as known to her family and friends, leaves behind her mother, Joyce. Three children: including two daughters Ashley Trask of Port St. Lucie, Florida, Tara and Stephen Rodriguez of Aurora, Colorado, and her only son Kyle Trask of Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Three siblings and their families; Kirk Browning of Logan WV, Brain Keith and Angela of Creedmore, NC and his son Uriah Perry of PA. Nancy and Shannon Underwood of Man and their children Brandon and Courtney Browning of Calabash NC, Joshua and Destiny Hoffman Underwood of Huntington WV, and Zack and Katherine Underwood of Louisa, KY. And a host of extended family and friends which includes her health care family at Hillcrest in Danville.
She fought Multiple Sclerosis with Epileptic seizures for twenty-five years, never giving up even after setbacks and heartbreaks. Her feisty attitude and sassy mouth were just two of her attributes. Sandy loved Donny Osmond and Bob Seger as a teenager and a Rock-n-Roll aficionado, loving the music of the Eighties most of all. She loved to sing in church, even having a group when she was younger, a much-underappreciated talent loved by her parents. She was a beloved big sister and will be greatly missed. The love of her life were her children, although separated after her numerous health issues, she often talked about them, remembering them fondly and always holding them in her heart. Her dream was to one day be reunited with them, but was never given the chance.
At the time of her disability, Sandy was a second shift manager with Motorola Solutions Inc in Florida. She held several positions after high school graduation, working with the public and had a million-dollar smile. Sandy was a jokester and had the knack to make everyone laugh. “It will be the little things that you will remember. The quiet moments, the smiles, the laughter. It will be the memories of these little things that helps to push away the pain, and bring the smiles back again.”
May you forever be surrounded by purple roses, the memory of your children just after a bath, and music, so you can dance once again.
The family would like to express our deepest appreciation for the love and care Sandy received from her home away from home, Hillcrest Health Care Center. Thank you for making her family,
and loving her as yours. Also, Hubbard Hospice House in Charleston, WV for helping to make her last hours comfortable and meaningful.
At Sandy’s request, she has been cremated and there will be no services. Her mother and children will retain her remains to later be released into the ocean.
