Karyn passed away peacefully on her birthday, June 16, 2015, at the age of 38 years. She had a strong spirit and battled cancer for more than a year to win every minute she could get with her family. Karyn is survived by her husband Chadwick, children Sebastian (8 years), Gwendolyn (5 years), and Josephine (18 months). Her passing is also mourned by her father Larry Eaglestone; sister Kelly Glass and husband Jacob; mother-in- law Cheryl Corscadden; sister-in-law Danielle Kingma & her husband Bryan; sister-in-law Charlene Waters & her partner Cornelius Wheland; as well as nieces and nephews Mikiya, Marty, Billy, Colleen, Jules, Keira & Megan. She will also be missed by her many, amazing friends. Karyn was predeceased by her mother Sandy in 2013.
The family would like to thank the staff of the Abbotsford Regional Hospital & Cancer Centre for the support and accommodation which allowed us the extra quality time with Karyn.
Karyn died young but made the most of the life given her, including her dream of being a business owner when she moved Birkeland Brothers Wool from its downtown Vancouver location of 73 years to downtown Abbotsford. Her family is dedicated to realizing her dream of continuing the family business in Abbotsford for another 73 years. A Memorial Service will be held for Karyn on Friday, July 3, 2015, at 3:00 PM at Cascade Community Church, 35190 Delair Rd, Abbotsford, BC.
