Bibi , you will be very sadly missed by those of us who worked with you in the Staging Building. A true friend and coworker, an ardent supporter of our 1st year Bio students, you were one of those rare people who could literally "light up your life". You have blessed our hearts. Dan

I am so sorry to hear of Bibi’s passing. We'll always remember Bibi fondly and feel lucky that we had the pleasure of knowing her. Bibi was always smiling and happy when we would run in to her on Meredith Drive! The boys will always remember that is the house that always went all out at Halloween.
My heart goes out to you and your family at this difficult time

Dear Carl, Richard and Alana,
I can't tell you how much I will miss Bibi. I worked with her in the department of Political Science and oftentimes, talking to her would be the best part of my day. Bibi helped me so much with all the academic events and conferences I have planned over the years. In fact, I think it was a point of pride for her to be able to help and serve people with her talents and passions. What an amazing human being she was! Master organizer, jewelery maker, web-designer, photographer and most of all, devoted wife, proud mother and loyal friend. I once asked her: 'Bibi, how do you do it all?' And she replied quite matter of factly, "I'm a mom". And that was the secret to her success: her love for you. Athough I have never met any of you, I can tell you that I never had one conversation with Bibi without her proudly referring to her husband and children. We are all so blessed to have had Bibi in our lives, despite the fact that the department will never be the same without her there. I feel honoured to have known her and hope that I can live a life as vital and meaningful as Bibi has lived. She will be remembered with love and missed by all.

Bibi was a good friend of mine. I was shocked and deeply saddened to hear of her passing after having been away. She was a loyal friend and always wanted to help me and any others she knew could use a helping hand, even when she had a lot on the go herself, as she always did. She had a great smile that really lifted your spirits. I know how important her family was so to her. My heart goes out to them and her many friends. She will be missed terribly.
