Cynthia KLASSEN

KLASSEN ~ Cynthia Ruth. April 9, 1957 ~ Feb. 10, 2012. Passed away suddenly but peacefully in her sleep at age 54 in her Maple Ridge home. Cynthia was born in Saskatoon, SK, the daughter of Frank and Ruth (nee Rempel) Klassen. She was born the second oldest of four children into a loving family, but faced many challenges throughout her all too short life. Cynthia shared her mother’s remarkable memory for birthdays and anniversaries as well as enjoyed a gift for writing poetry. She also had an amazing sense of humour, even in her darkest hours, cheering up many a person with her phone calls. Cynthia was a devoted Christian, baptized in Richmond Bethel Mennonite Brethren Church on August 17, 1975. Cynthia is predeceased by her mother Ruth and survived by her father Frank Sr. as well as brothers, Frank, Lorne and Jeff along with her sister-in-laws Karen, Wendy/Rose and Kate; nieces and nephews Kaila (Kevin ~ daughters Ava & Evvy), Kelsey, Philip (Lian), Elise and Aaron. During Cynthia’s hardest times, she appreciated the love and support of her family along with many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. A time of sharing and celebrating Cynthia’s courageous life will take place at the Holiday Inn Magnolia Room, 8750 204th Street, Langley on Saturday, March 3 at 2:00 pm. A reception will follow. Memorial gifts can be made to the Women Against Violence Against Women (wavaw.ca), Covenant House Vancouver (covenanthousebc.org) or Union Gospel Mission (ugm.ca).
