It is with sadness that the School of Optometry and Vision Science announces the passing of Dr. Gina Sorbara on February 10, 2021. She was surrounded by her loving family.
Dr. Sorbara was truly one of kind. Her spirit, passion and commitment to optometry were felt both here at the University of Waterloo and around the world. Staff, students and faculty are grateful to have had the opportunity to honour Gina and her indelible legacy during the celebration of her retirement last year. She has had an extraordinary impact on all those who were lucky enough to know her; she will truly be missed.
Due to the pandemic, there will not be a public funeral service. Gina’s family has requested that in lieu of flowers, donations can be made in her honour to either the Canadian Cancer Society or the School of Optometry & Vision Science.
