      HAIBECK _ Blanche ("Bunny") Blanche ("Bunny") Haibeck passed away October 27, 2007 in Richmond General Hospital at the age of 86 following a long battle with heart disease. She was surrounded by her children, Sue Haibeck of Richmond, BC; Barb Grant of Calgary, Alberta; John Haibeck of West Vancouver, BC; and Tom Haibeck of North Vancouver, BC. Born on January 1, 1921 to parents Daniel and Winona Ostlund, Bunny was raised on the family farm in Stirling, Alberta. She was a hard worker who excelled in athletics throughout her childhood. She later moved to Lethbridge, Alberta where she met her beloved husband, JTC ("Todd") Haibeck, who predeceased her in June 2002. She is survived by her four children, eight grandchildren: Todd Haibeck of North Vancouver; Diana and Michael Grant of Calgary; Michael, Christopher and Emily Haibeck of North Vancouver; Maxwell and Olivia Sykes of West Vancouver; and one great-grandchild Brooklyn Haibeck of North Vancouver, all of whom were the love of her life. She often said: "If I had known how much fun grandchildren and great-grandchildren were, I would have had them first." She spent many happy summers with her grandchildren at the family cottage in Waterton Lakes National Park. Affectionately known as "The Little Red Hen" in recognition of her feisty and determined manner, she was loving to a fault and always there for her family and friends. She was also an active volunteer who gave generously to many good causes, including St. Michael's Hospital Auxiliary, The John Howard Society, Alanon and Southminster United Church. At her request, a private Graveside Service will be held in her honour November 17 in Calgary (McInnis & Holloway Funeral Homes). Her family would like to thank Dr. Benny Bar-Shlomo, Dr. Kelvin Chao, Dr. Ed Lerner, Estelita Carpuz, Darlene Burns and the many other doctors, nurses and caregivers who tended to her throughout her illness. Those who wish may donate to the Heart and Stroke Foundation in lieu of flowers.
