March 12, 1958 - March 3 2021 We are heartbroken to announce the passing of our dear sister, Cheryl Hiebert, on March 3. Words are sadly lacking to express how much she meant to her family and how unfairly the present circumstances have conspired to keep us apart for the past year. Cherished daughter of Victor Hiebert and his late wife Alyce. Beloved sister to Philip and Cynthia (Ludwik) and fascinating Auntie to Gabriel and Isabelle. Friends for life with cousin Kathryn Siemens (Ken). Cheryl lived in Manitoba for fourteen years, completing an undergraduate degree in education as well as a teaching degree in Winnipeg . Her first teaching gig was further north in an elementary school in South Indian Lake. She later studied to be a library technician but found herself teaching again in Ontario; this time in high school. Cheryl enjoyed playing on a softball team as well as concerts at the Hillside Festival. She loved painting landscapes, reading, and when she was younger, she loved to travel. She never lost her appreciation for learning new things, and loved to discuss ideas around the family dinner table where no topic was off the table and politics and religion were often debated. Young onset dementia changed her life dramatically but the sweetness of her spirit shone brightly through the fog, as did her courage. Those lucky enough to cross paths with Cheryl were always greeted with a smile and a friendly word. We will miss you forever, Cheryl, and can't believe you are gone. A small funeral will be held on March 6 with a larger memorial planned for when we can safely gather.
