It is with deep sorrow and heavy hearts that we announce that Aoife Snook passed away peacefully at the age of 48 after a long battle with leukemia with her loving husband and daughter by her side. Cherished wife to Ross and loving mother to Aisling, predeceased by her loving father Edward Medlar, survived by her loving mother Monica Medlar, sister Orla Geraghty (Thady), brother Ciaran Medlar (Adrienne), father in law Michael Snook and mother in law Grace Snook, brother-in-law Michael Snook (Ginette), nieces Deirbhle Geraghty, Sadhbh Medlar, nephews Conor Medlar, Fionn Medlar, Ruairi Geraghty, Michael Snook, Matthew Snook, aunts Pat Ward, Marie Dolan and numerous cousins and friends.
Aoife was born and grew up in Dublin Ireland, and moved to Canada when she was 19 for "one year". However, she fell in love with Ottawa and carved out a wonderful life here. Her love of children was amazing, leading her to work in childcare her whole life. Kids automatically gravitated to her, and she loved each and everyone of them. She was a huge part of the darting community, and will be sorely missed by everyone.
The family would like to thank all the doctors, nurses and staff of the hematology department at the Ottawa Hospital General Campus for all their hard work, compassion and kindness over the last year, she loved you all.
