Shaina Herman

Shaina Marcelle Herman of Nevada City, Calif., passed away on Saturday, Oct. 19, 2013. She was 25.

Shaina was born in Grass Valley, Calif., on April 19, 1988, and was raised in Penn Valley, Calif.

Shaina was one of the most beautiful, loving, accepting and compassionate people to ever grace this world. She was a beautiful soul who gave everything she had to her family, friends and community. In Shaina’s 25 short years, she was able to make the most incredible impact on the lives she touched.

She is survived by her parents, Laura Moulton and Mathew (Elizabeth) Herman; brother, Jarred Herman; sister, Natalie (Herman) McKee; stepbrothers Josephine Proul and Jeffery Proul; grandfather, Kenneth Moulton; uncles Leland Moulton and Marty (Kary) Herman; aunts Mikki Lord and Marcie (Danny) Page; great friend, Dave Webb; numerous cousins, nieces and nephews; and a very close group of friends and loved ones too vast to name.

Shaina was preceded in death by her grandmother, Roberta R. Moulton; grandparents Clarence and Ernisteen Herman; uncle, Michael Herman; and auntie, Ann Herman.

A memorial fund has been established in Shaina’s name, and her family asks that donations to The Shaina Marcelle Herman Memorial Fund at the Grass Valley El Dorado Savings Bank or to ( be made in lieu of flowers. All donations will be contributed to causes that would make Shaina proud.
