A Citrus Heights woman says she’s devastated after learning Thursday that her 27-year-old sister was one of the 14 killed in the San Bernardino shooting this week, according to a statement on her social media.
“I just found out the most horrible news of my life! My sister Sierra Clayborn was killed in the San Bernardino shooting. RIP Baby sis,” Tamishia Clayborn wrote on her Facebook page Thursday morning. “I love you more than you ever knew. You were taken too soon. My heart is broken. I am completely devastated…”
According to Fox40, Tamishia lives in Citrus Heights and had a notice posted on her door Thursday night requesting privacy.
Several individuals who knew Sierra have spoken out in various news reports around the country, calling her a “super lady” who loved her profession as a County health inspector.
A manager at Red Baron Pizza in Big Bear Lake told Chicago’s ABC 7 that Sierra had visited his restaurant the day before the shooting to complete an inspection, and was “one of the nicest health inspectors that we’ve ever had.”
According to the LA Times, Sierra’s apartment manager said she was “energetic, thoughtful and always smiling.”
“When I think of Sierra, only one word comes to mind: She was a lady,” manager Mary Hale told the Times. “That’s not a word I use lightly. She was a super, super lady.”
Hale also told the Times that Sierra “was dedicated to her profession, and she loved the opportunities to meet different people.”
Sierra’s Facebook profile is still covered by the transparent red, white and blue colors in remembrance of those killed in the recent terror attack in France.
“Even as you go, your picture is out of love for victims elsewhere,” a comment on her photo by Timothy Lee says. “You are so beautiful Sierra miss you.”

A GoFundMe page has been set up by Tamishia to assist with memorial funding for her sister. The funding page raised over $2,000 in 3 hours Friday morning.
The FBI announced Friday it is treating the shooting by Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik as a terrorism case, according to the New York Times.
