Bibianne (nee Lafrance) DZUBA

It is with great sadness the family announces the passing of Bibianne on Wednesday, November 19th, 2014 at Trillium Lodge at the age of 72.

Loving wife and soul mate to Ed, for 35 years; cherished mother to Gregg, Nadine, Wayne, Bob, Michael; proud Nana to 13 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren; dear sister to Bernie, Carmelle, Denis, Richard, Roger, Marilyn, & Marc. She will be sadly missed by her many extended family members, and the close friends she made over the years.

Having been a talented hair stylist, and proprietor of her own salon for 40 plus years, Bibianne fostered countless personal relationships with her clientele. Her charismatic personality extended far into the Qualicum community where she lived for the last 32 years through her active involvement in choirs, walking groups, tai chi club, and various church functions. Being an outstanding athlete, she excelled at most sports, including cross country skiing, slow-pitch, golf, and especially curling where she reached her heights at the BC Provincial Masters Women’s Championship in 2006, and participated in the nationals in Nova Scotia.

A Celebration of Life will be held in Bibianne’s honour at 1:00 pm on Monday, December 1st

at Yates Funeral Chapel, 1000 Allsbrook Road

in Parksville. 

In lieu of flowers, please consider honouring Bibianne’s memory with a donation to the Alzheimer Society of BC, #300-828 West 8th Avenue, Vancouver, BC V5Z 1E2, or the charity of your choice.
