With great sadness we announce the passing of two beautiful children. Austin Mitchell Claassen born May 31, 2007 and Ava Mae Claassen born November 16, 2005.
Both born at the Vernon Jubilee Hospital and both passed away at the St. Bartholomew’s Hospital in Lytton during the early hours of October 13, 2011. They will be missed terribly by many friends and family. Taken too soon and survived by so many including their father Blaire Claassen, brother Brayden Claassen, uncle Vince Claassen, grandma Shirley Claassen, great-grandparents Ted & Anne Wandfluh and Helga & Gunther Claassen, great-aunts and uncles and cousins. Pre-deceased by Opa Werner Claassen and uncle Randal Claassen.
Ava and Austin will laugh and play in our hearts forever. There will be a memorial service held for family and friends on Thursday, October 20, 2011 at The Rancho in Abbotsford at 1:00 pm.
