Condolences on the passing of former Vernon Alliance staff member, Mavis Klassen.
We would like to acknowledge the passing of Mavis Klassen on April 8, 2022. Mavis was a member of our staff team along with her husband, Jake from 2004 until their retirement in 2016. After an incredible international missions career, Mavis served as a counsellor and (alongside Jake) as a Senior Adult Ministries Pastor at VAC. She also spent 18 years with Freedom in Christ Ministries.

Mavis was known as an encourager, and by God’s grace she was able to touch and encourage many lives throughout her life. Her life goal was to be used by God to touch lives for Jesus. Although she will be greatly missed by her family, many friends, and colleagues, we live in anticipation and hope that we will be reunited with her in heaven.

Mavis was 84, and is survived by her husband of 63 years, Jake. Our sincere condolences and prayers go out to Mavis’ family, including her sons Bruce, Kevin and their families.

In honour of Mavis, memorial donations may be made to Freedom In Christ Ministries Canada. There will be a Memorial Service on Thursday, April 14 at 1pm at Springfield Funeral Home in Kelowna, BC, officiated by Reverend Kevin Klassen. If you are unable to attend in person, please join the family online by Livestream here.
