The passing of Prof. Laurie Hendren

May 27, 2019

It is with great sadness that we share the news that our colleague and friend, Prof. Laurie Hendren, passed away this morning.

Her passion for her discipline, her selflessness, her wisdom, and her excellence in research, teaching and leadership served to inspire all of us.

Laurie was a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, a holder of a Canada Research Chair, a Fellow of the ACM, and a winner of the Leo Yaffe Award for Excellence in Teaching in the Faculty of Science.

Laurie always fought courageously for us for the issues that matter, helping to shape our School into what it presently is. She was a wonderful person, a dedicated mentor and a role model to so many of us.

We will remember her booming laugh and we will miss her deeply.

To Jane and Prakash we wish all strength.
