Shaunna Lee Buchy

May 28, 1972 – March 26, 2021
It is with profound sadness, sorrow & loss that we announce the passing of our beautiful daughter Shanna Lee Buchy in Kamloops, B.C., on March 26, 2021. Shaunna was born May 28, 1972 in Kimberley, B.C., to Kathleen and Vic Buchy.

A Life Remembered
As some people journey through life, they leave footprints wherever they go;
footprints of kindness and love, courage, and compassion,
humour and inspiration, joy, and faith
Even when they are gone, we can still look back and clearly see the trail they left behind –
A trail bright with hope that invites us to follow.

Shaunna excelled in everything she did from academics, sports, work as a dental assistant, gardening, cooking, and even carpentry to the finest detail. Shaunna will be remembered for her strength of character, her kindness, and big heart. She always looked for the best in everyone. I know that she will continue to live in spirit with us all, with her bright smile, her big heart, and her compassion for others.
Shaunna was a mother, daughter, sister, aunt, and a friend to many. She leaves to mourn her two sons Owen Coty and Zenan Coty, her parents Vic and Kathleen Buchy, brother Tom Buchy (Lori), nieces Alysha and Kaila, and numerous aunts, uncles, and many friends.
A private service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please donate to SPCA, food bank or a charity of one’s choice.
Arrangements entrusted to McPherson Funeral Services.
