Shauna Lynn Klassen (nee Fitzpatrick)

April 6, 1979 – June 30, 2019
It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our sweet girl, after a very lengthy illness.
Shauna was a life long resident of the Cowichan Valley. She was a gentle, caring wife and mother. She loved life and took every opportunity to seize the day. Some of the experiences she enjoyed most included cheering on the Cowichan Valley Thunder Lacrosse teams, volunteering at the Hospital Auxiliaries Thrift Store (HATS), Dragon boating, relaxing at the cabin in Caycuse, and spending time with supportive friends and family.
Shauna was predeceased by her maternal Grandparents Dr. and Mrs. JJ Morrow of Lake Cowichan, BC. She will be fondly remembered and loved by Husband Kyle and Son Adam Klassen, Parents Doug & Lynn Fitzpatrick, Grandparents Bev & Hank Fitzpatrick, Sister Megan Fraser (Mark), Nephew Evan, Niece Lindyn, In laws Dale & Neva Klassen, In laws Vivian & Glen McDonald, Brother in law Patrick Klassen and Stepdaughter Jamie Brenton (Adam)
We would like to extend our gratitude to the many Doctors and Health Care providers who crossed Shauna’s path, namely Dr. Masuda, Dr. Dewar, Dr. Shaipanich, Dr. Anderson, Dr. Scudamore, Dr. Huk, and Dr. Moulaison. Also, a heartfelt thank you to all of the friends and family who have offered support over the years.
A Celebration of Life will take place at 1 pm on Saturday August 10th, 2019 at the Ramada Inn, 140 Trans-Canada Hwy, Duncan BC. Please bring your best written memories of Shauna to leave as a contribution towards a family keepsake.
