Michelle Ann Sabine


Michelle Ann Douglas Sabine, 76, was born on June 2, 1943, in Boston, MA, and died on Aug. 31, 2019.
Active for many years in Cumberland County, Mrs. Sabine served as chairman of the Art Circle Public Library and was co-chair of the building committee for the "new library" built in the 1970s. She also was elected to and served as chairman of the Cumberland County School Board; as director and chairman of the board of directors at Uplands Village; and as chairman of the Cumberland County Playhouse board of directors. Mrs. Sabine also performed on stage in several Playhouse productions, particularly in shows for children. She co-founded a children's theatre program and Summer Arts Day Camp. Mrs. Sabine was a member of the Crossville Jaycettes and the former Church of the Good Shepherd, UCC.
Mrs. Sabine attended Maryville College and received a B.A. in Library Science from Tennessee Technological University.
She loved books, bridge, shopping and swimming. She enjoyed sending cards to friends and family with trademark stickers and confetti. Fresh cut flowers made her happy.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Newton R. and Ann C. Douglas; husband, Harry D. Sabine; son, Steven D. Sabine; sister, Lee D. Ketchersid; and parents-in-law, Harry G. and Ruth M. Sabine.
She is survived by her son, Jay Sabine (Rose); daughter-in-law, Toni Sabine; grandson, Jordan Hall-Sabine; her brothers, Peter Douglas (Linda), Robert Douglas (Nancy), Eric Douglas (Sheila), Steven Douglas (Deborah) and Neil Douglas (Theresa); nieces and nephews; and grand-nieces and grand-nephews.
A celebration of her life will be held at a later date.
