It is with deep sadness that we inform you of the passing of our cherished mother, Laura Schneerer, at the age of 79, after bravely fighting cancer. Surrounded by her loved ones, she peacefully departed from this world. Laura was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Edward Schneerer, and is survived by her daughter, Anne Schneerer, and son-in-law, Eric Rozovsky. She was a devoted grandmother to Aidan and Jack Rozovsky. Born as the seventh child in a large family of ten siblings, Laura is also survived by three siblings, including her dear younger sister, Evonne Knoll Lipski, of Grand Rapids, Michigan. Additionally, she leaves behind numerous nieces, nephews, grand nieces, and grand nephews residing in Canada, the United States, and Israel. Throughout her life, Laura displayed immense strength and resilience, serving as an inspiration to all who knew her.

Laura was born into a farming family in Holland, Michigan, and at the age of 18, she left her childhood home to pursue higher education. She became the first member of her family to graduate from university, a milestone that carried great significance. It was during her time at university that she crossed paths with Edward Schneerer, the love of her life. At the young age of 22, Laura embarked on a life-transforming journey. She married Edward, converted to Judaism, and together they started a family, eventually settling down in Montreal.

Montreal held a special place in Laura’s heart, as she considered it her true home. For ten years, Laura worked as a librarian at PSBGM, finding fulfillment in her profession. However, her greatest source of joy and fulfillment came from her role as a wife and mother. Laura’s dedication to her family was unparalleled. She delighted in preparing gourmet meals every evening and showered her daughter, son-in-law, and grandsons with love and affection. In addition to her family, Laura had a deep passion for the British Royal Family, annual trips to Europe, cooking, decorating, and her many beloved golden retrievers.

In accordance with Laura’s final wishes, her body will be cremated. Rather than sending flowers, the family kindly requests donations be made to the Canadian Cancer Society. The family would also like to express their gratitude to the nurses at Mount Sinai Hospital for their exceptional care. As we say goodbye to Laura, we hold dear the memories of her extraordinary life and find solace in the fact that her memory will forever be a blessing to all whose lives she touched.
