When I was taking Fire Technology classes at Copper Mountain College a year ago, in hopes of restarting a Paid Call Firefighter (PCF) program in Wonder Valley, I kept hearing one name, over and over again, Kasandra Shaw.

Shaw, along with Jack McConaha and Star Javiar, were instrumental in maintaining the PCF program in Wonder Valley, at least before County Fire took over.

An obituary in the Hi-Desert Star reported that Shaw died on November 12 at Desert Regional Hospital. She was 65. She worked as a PCF for 10 years. She was an artist and loved painting, writing, singing, and dancing.

Services will be announced. For more information, please call her son, Dylan Hubbard, at (760) 408-6831.

Mary Sibley tells me that Shaw worked as a bartender at The Palms for several years.

Kasandra Shaw touched many lives, and many people in Wonder Valley mourn her death. If you have anything you'd like to share about Kasandra, please include it in the comments.
