Šnepp, Libuše

10. 1. 1935 – 09. 24. 2021

An eternal optimist who brought light and laughter to all, Libuše (“Li”) left the Earth surrounded by loved ones after a long illness. She was a beloved friend; a mother; a daughter; wife of Luděk Šnepp; and sister to Marie and Drahosláva. Libuše survived the Nazi occupation of her childhood home in Klikařov, Czechoslovakia. Following the Soviet invasion of 1968, she escaped with her daughter to a refugee camp in Germany before landing in Canada. A skilled editor, teacher, and poet, she spoke five languages and worked as a librarian at the University of Western Ontario for many years. Upon retiring, she continued travelling, camping, loving nature, writing poetry, gardening and feeding grapes to the robins. Libuše was a generous, mischievous, and courageous adventurer and intellectual, and her absence diminishes this world. Those wishing to make a donation in memory of Libuše are asked to consider the London Humane Society.
