Jolie passed away on Saturday, November 17, 2018 after suffering a massive stroke at the age of 68. She joined the Town Planning Institute of Canada in 1974 as a student at the University of Waterloo and after graduating from the School of Regional Planning and Resource Development, she relocated to Alberta and has been a dedicated member of APPI since 1979.  Jolie served the Institute(s) and planning profession in many capacities including but not limited to:  APPI Council, APPI oral examiner, APPI Practice Review Committee,  APPI Alberta Sustainability Planning Initiative and Professional Standards Board Accreditation Program Committee.  In 2013 the Institute acknowledged and celebrated Jolie’s significant contribution by bestowing upon her the APPI Outstanding Contribution to the Profession Award.  Jolie was active as an environmental planner and consultant, a planning teacher and mentor to many students and planners young and old since the mid 1970's.    Jolie brought passion and a sense of humour to everything and everyone she touched.  A Celebration of Life is planned for Saturday November 24 at 2:00 PM at Connelly-McKinley Ltd, 10011-114 Street, Edmonton.
