Sabrina Jade Mackic, eight-year-old daughter of Goran Mackic and Beatris Adrianna Montenegro of Fort Worth, died Monday morning, December 2, 2019 at Cook Children’s Hospital in Fort Worth after her tiny heart failed following a sudden illness.
Sabrina was born June 21, 2011, in Fort Worth where her father is employed as an industrial engineer at Bell Helicopter’s Hurst Texas plant, and her loving mother is a stay-at-home homemaker.

She became ill on Sunday while returning home from Amarillo with her parents and younger brother Aaron after having spent Thanksgiving week visiting and enjoying the holiday in the company of her many relatives in Amarillo. She was hospitalized for treatment Sunday evening upon returning to Fort Worth.
Sabrina loved music and especially enjoyed singing karaoke, dancing and having her picture taken. She was an avid player of video games in competition with her brother. On almost every visit to see her relatives in Amarillo she was a regular patron at Chuck E. Cheese with her aunt, Vanja Mackic, of Amarillo, where they often were joined by her paternal grandparents, Vesna and Edin Mackic, also of Amarillo.
