Anne-Marie Edward

Loved skiing so much that she was buried in her École polytechnique ski team jacket. After her murder, her teammates wore patches with her initials on their uniforms.

Had fled (communist) Poland with her husband 2 years earlier. They were together when she was murdered. Her husband later said they had come to Canada because they believed it was the safest place.

30 years ago, a loser walked into an University in Montréal, separated genders and gunned down 14 women. My aunt survived because the killer thought she was dead. I still remember to this day the gunpowder smell when she made it back home 1/5 #MontrealMassacre
She finished her studies and became an engineer, worked on a water purification plant, worked on building bridges & plants across the province and worked on building the biggest hospital in Montréal. 2/5
She, along with her girlfriend, adopted two girls; one who found her passion in arts & cheerleading, the other studying to become a doctor. My aunt doesn't really talk about this day. My guess is she doesn't want the action of a psychopath to define who she is 3/5
