Farmer Mike Tuinstra from Verndale, Minnesota, lost the love of his life on Nov. 2. Just 40 years old, his wife Shanna was a beloved member of the community, devoted to teaching and bringing agricultural awareness to schools.
Mike said that Shanna passed away while he and his 13-year-old daughter Haylee held her after she had trouble breathing.
She stopped breathing, and when first responders arrived, they could not revive her.
She had an enlarged heart, which may have factored into her passing, but Mike said she died of natural causes.
