Tabitha Ronay Talbert

Tabitha Ronay Talbert, born November 29, 2000, passed away on June 4, 2021.  She is the daughter of Sandra Owens Talbert of West End and Daniel Ray Talbert of Troy. Her grandparents are Sarah Owens Harris of West End, Ernest Owens Sr. of West Virginia, and Stanley and Diane Talbert of Troy; uncles, Ernie Owens of West End, and Ronnie Owens (deceased); aunt, Ashley Talbert Callicutt of Troy; her cat, Zack; and her many friends who also were her family. 

Tabitha was a 2019 graduate of Pinecrest High School, excelling in theater. She was currently attending St. Andrews College through Sandhills Community College for elementary education.  She made the 2021 spring Deans List and was employed at the Sandhills Bowling Center. 

She was full of love and life, and she expressed it in her own unique way.  She was an old soul, loving old movies and characters.  A Beatles fan, she loved reading and was an inspiration to us all.  If she taught us one thing from her presence or her passing, then she completed her job. Love your family, love your friends and always be there for them no matter what.  Tabitha would want you to celebrate each day and make the “DASH” count.

A visitation was held on Tuesday, June 8, 2021, from 2 to 4 p.m., at the Boles Funeral Home in Seven Lakes followed by a graveside service at 4 p.m. at the West End Cemetery in West End.
