Obituary Overview

WIEBE, Laura

It is with overwhelming grief that we announce the untimely passing of Dr. Laura Marie Wiebe on Tuesday, August 16th, 2022 with her two sisters by her side at the age of 46 after a battle with cancer. Laura is survived by her partner of 12 years, Adam Wills; her sisters, Barbara Wiebe Cisecki (Jeff) and Deanna Wiebe (Lazgin Isa); and her nieces, sisters Charlotte Wiebe and Sarah Riley, sisters Brooke and Natasha Cisecki. Laura is predeceased by her parents, Lorne (who passed away in Laura’s arms in May 2019) and Valerie (July 2021) Wiebe. Cats were a very important part of Laura’s life, so we have to mention that she is predeceased by her first and irreplaceable cat, Jessica, Napalm, Maximilliano, Xavier, Asbestos, Daisy, and “this most lovely and wonderful and the bestest of cats”, Minue (June 2022). Laura will be missed by many relatives, friends, colleagues and students.

A private family gathering and cremation has already taken place.

In lieu of flowers, donations to the following charities that Laura supported would be meaningful:
Ladybird Animal Sanctuary, Hamilton, ON at ladybirdanimalsanctuary.com
The Donkey Sanctuary of Canada, Puslinch, ON at thedonkeysanctuary.ca
Jacobs Ridge Animal Sanctuary, Murcia, Spain at jacobsridge.com

I share the clearly spoken closing remark that Laura said to her students in a lecture she was giving in her sleep 2 nights before she passed, “Always be kind to each other.”

Your friendship will be dearly missed Laura, and our deepest condolences to your family and Adam. Thank you for helping us find a home for Shizu. When we were about to give up last summer, you encouraged us to keep trying, and this led to the happiest of endings for her. Your kindness and love for the critters we share the world with was unbounded. We have made a donation to the Neveah's Charity ​of West Lincoln Cat Rescue in your memory. These were the generous people that cared for Shizu, and found her a forever home. Thank you Laura.
