In Celebration of

Wanda "Didy" Niederreiter (Nee Lapré)

June 1, 1949 -  January 26, 2020

Peacefully passed away at Dorothy Ley Hospice on Sunday January 26 2020. Adored wife of Hans for 41 remarkable years. Beloved sister to Jimmy Lapré, Lody Lapré, Ingrid Duif, John Lapré, Johan Lapré, Thea Lapré and Ferry Lapré. Didy will be fondly missed and remembered by many extended family and friends here and abroad. Didy held many interests beginning in her youth, accomplished second degree black belt in taekwondo, and ultimately won the world championship in Oklahoma City (1978). She then pursued a diploma in social services studies at Seneca College, which built the foundation for a long and prosperous career with the Toronto Board of Education as a lead instructor of the ESL program. A few years later she volunteered for T.E.S.S in Guatemala to assist ailing children with clef pallet procedures and recovery, where she also learned Spanish in addition to her 4 previously learned languages. Ultimately she started her own business in dog grooming which became her true passion. Another passion was playing the ukulele in various jams all across Toronto. Despite all her accomplishments she ultimately lost the fight to cancer after a brave 7 year battle.
She will be missed by all. As an expression of sympathy memorial donations to the Canadian Cancer Society would be greatly appreciated by the family.

We savoured a deep friendship for many years, which became stronger as time passed. We enjoyed social get togethers discussing the issues of the day or simply had fun. I particularly liked her gentle spirit coupled with determination and ability.
My heartfelt sympathy goes to Hans, who will miss her even more than we do!
Farewell, my friend, you are in a better place now!

I only met Didy a few years ago, when I took my dogs to her for grooming. I saw right away how kind and giving she was. Didy's beautiful soul shone through, and I will always remember her.
