Shaina Ann Bigby was tragically taken from us on June 26, 2019 at the age of 27 in Murray, Utah.

Shaina was born in Salt Lake City, Utah on November 4, 1991 to parents Dawn Pearce (Bigby) and John R. Bigby and was a lifelong area resident. Shaina attended various schools throughout her childhood in Utah and then graduated from Canyon Heights High School in Davis County, Utah on June 4, 2010. Shaina had a beautiful baby girl at age 16 whom she loved more than anything. She knew she could not give her baby the life she deserved at that time, so she unselfishly placed her for adoption. Shaina was a beautiful woman inside and out. She was a free spirit and loved to experience life to the fullest. She loved to dance, play softball, camp, fish, snowboard, go to the sand dunes, hang out with friends and family, travel and participate in any other adventures that came her way.

Shaina is survived by her mother and stepfather, Dawn and Wesley Pearce of West Valley City, Utah; father and stepmother, John R. and Marielen Bigby of West Valley City, Utah; daughter, Kate of Syracuse, Utah; siblings, Ashley (Josh) Staats of Murray, Utah, Jessica Bigby, Vance Bigby and Helayna Bigby of West Valley City, Utah; dog, Pickles; grandparents, Ron and Cathy Benson of Taylorsville, Utah, Kent and Carol Price of Syracuse, Utah, Ron and LaDon Bigby of Orville, California, Merrill Rasmussen of Vernal, Utah; step grandparents, Douglas E.

My beautiful daughter is gone and a piece of my heart with her. She is my youngest of 3 daughters and was always a free spirit. She was beautiful inside and out and had touched many lives. Shaina words can't express how much I love you and miss you. I'm so devastated right now and am lost for words. Fly free my sweet bady girl. I will we able to hold you in my arms again when I reach the other side someday. My heart will always be with you. Love mom

You were always so bubbly and lively. Everyone loved being around you. You gave the best advice even if the truth hurt. So many look up to you. Our Topgolf days were a blast, such a natural at every sport, didn't take you but 3 swings to get the hang of golf. You will be so very missed. Fly high miss Shaina!

You were my soul sister and the light of my life, you always had my back and there wasn't a second of the day you weren't there for me. My heart is missing a huge piece as is everyone else's with you away. I just know that gorgeous smile is lighting up the heavens ❤️ I love you legs and I miss you every second of every day.

Shaina, I will never forget the cupcake you got me for my birthday (it's still in my fridge, years later) and making that day so memorable... You were an amazing friend, and thank you for everything you did! xo

I will never forget when we went to the lake at Pine View and road the tubes, the boys tried their hardest to throw us off that tube, but they just couldn’t do it. We laughed because I got stuck in the tube to the point I had people tugging and pulling to get me out! We had the best time soaking up the sun and laughing!! You’re dearly missed my sweet love!

My legs for days,

I will always remember our Sand Hollow trip, the smile you got while riding the wheelers, your dance moves, and you dominating cornhole. I miss you dearly. You brightened each and every day for many of us and we will never forget that contagious smile, those eyes, and your adventurous side. Until we meet again beautiful. I love you

Shania baby,
You were the life of the party wherever you went. I will always remember your contagious laugh, your beautiful blue eyes, & the way you wore those heels & towered over your short friends. Nothing will ever be the same without you. I hope heaven is everything you expected and so much more. Forever missing you.
Love always, Manders

Our sweet Shaina , words cannot Express how much mine and Uncle Garry's hearts hurt. Sweetheart we miss you so very much, I can't imagine how much all your parents feel. You are such a beautiful person and a very sweet niece. Aunt Brenda always loved taking you , Jessica and Caitey to the grocery store and all 3 of you girls in the same cart with room to spare for the groceries. I would be asked if I had triplets because you all looked so much a like. I would proudly say Yes I did! You will always be or sweet girl. We love you!
