In Memoriam: Rose Sheinin (née Shuber) 

Magnifying glass

We are saddened to announce on Friday, March 20, long-time Concordian and innovative academic Rose Sheinin passed away. She was 79.

A scientist, daughter, wife, mother and grandmother, Sheinin blazed a trail for women in science and academia. She lived her life with determination, passion and integrity, always pursuing her beliefs with fearless commitment.

A biology professor, she also served in various administrative roles (including Vice-Rector, Academic) at Concordia from 1989 to 2000. She chaired many groups including Women in Scholarship Committee (1989-1994). She was on the National Advisory Board for the Canadian Encyclopedia and was winner of the YWCA Woman of Distinction Award in 1988.

Predeceased by Joe, the love of her life, she is survived and will be sorely missed by David, Gabi, Mica, Daniela, Jack, Eleanor, Florene, Carolyn, Jennifer, Eli, Matthew, Harry, Lisa, Rachel, Jonah, Elka, as well as far too many friends to count.
