Claire Calhoun, of Issaquah, passed away peacefully at 12:30 a.m. Friday, April 12, 2013, as a result of a lifelong struggle with bone marrow failure.
Claire was two weeks shy of her 8th birthday. She was surrounded by her father Michael, mother Debbie, and older brothers Braeden and Sam.
Claire was easily recognized by her bright, flowing red hair, indomitable spirit and cheerful personality. Everyone who met Claire felt her joy and happiness with the simple things of life.
Claire is survived by her parents, Michael and Debbie Calhoun, and siblings Braeden (17) and Sam (14).
A funeral service is scheduled for Wednesday, April 17, and friends, family and children of all faiths are invited.
