Rivers, Shahia Rita

(nee Luanne Hospedales)

Born December 22, 1962

in Trinidad

Passed February 14, 2015

in Vancouver

Always kind in her words and loving in her actions, Shahia taught us all through example.

She had many great loves in her life: Her Boys; Ross, Jason, and Troy. Her beautiful granddaughter Mila, her mother Roberta, and her birth mother Theresa. Cousins in Trinidad and Canada, special auntie Alison. Numerous friends from Vernon area and throughout BC. Shahia was predeceased by her Father, Eston, with whom she was very close.

Shahia left us all with many gifts but her humor and resilience stand alone, she was always a listener who was filled with compassion and very quick wit. A very precious and rare being has left us. She will be missed by many.

There will be a celebration of Shahia’s life later this year.
