September 30, 1961 – August 6, 2018
It is with great sadness that the family of Shari Delaine Bachynski announces her unexpected passing on August 6, 2018.
Shari was born in Vancouver on September 30, 1961 and was taken to the loving home of Frank and Shirley Quast. She grew up on a quiet street in Surrey and spent every summer with family in Seymour Arm. She whiled away many an hour on the docks at Seymour Arm catching fish with a piece of line hook and a tablespoon of flour.
Shari moved to Vernon in 1986 with Tom Bachynski where they were blessed with two children, Rhia Delaine (Romano) on September 30, 1986 followed by Joshua Thomas on July 30 1989. She loved being a mother and her love for her children was unlimited.
The life of the party is likely the best way to describe Shari. She loved to entertain and socialize and was always the one with the big laughs, a smile that could light a room, and genuine love for everyone that touched her world.
A Celebration of Life is scheduled for 1:00 pm on Saturday, September 8, 2018 at the 108 Community Hall. In memory of Shari’s colourful spirit, the family respectfully requests that attendees wear their most colourful, spirited outfits to celebrate her life.
In lieu of flowers, those who so desire may make memorial donations in memory of Shari to the Canadian Mental Health Association (South Cariboo Branch www.southcariboo.cmha.bc.ca) or to BARCS Rescue (www.barcsrescue.com) as per her children’s wishes.
