It is with extreme sadness that we announce the passing of Shea Juliet Maurer on November 22, 2012. Shea was 10 years old.
Shea is survived by her mother DeAnna Testasecca of Fort Myers and her father Charles (and Teri) Maurer of Naples. She was born on December 5, 2001 and attended fifth grade at the Community School of Naples. Along with her parents, Shea is survived by her beloved Grammy and Gramps, Jim and Beverly Testasecca of Fort Myers, her Grandpa Charlie and Nancy Maurer of Massachusetts, her big brothers Michael (Patty) Maurer, Daniel (Kimberly) Maurer, Charles (Squeeze) Maurer and Kyle Waters; her big sisters Kye Maurer, Alexandra and Morgan Waters; and her little sister Meadow Testasecca.
