Calgary; University of Alberta, 1990; anesthesiology. Died of breast cancer March 29, 2017, aged 59. Survived by her husband, Don. In her self-written obituary, she stated: "As an anesthesiologist I worked daily with a team of skilled and dedicated nurses and physicians, and was able to have a positive effect on many lives.
