Sydnie Ratzlaff

February 16, 2021
1994-2021 ~ It is with deep sadness that we share the news of Sydnie’s passing. Sydnie passed away in the arms of her mother, father, and brother on Tuesday, February 16, 2021, at 27 years of age. Vibrance, compassion, and unwavering loyalty are just some of the intrinsic characteristics that defined Sydnie’s life.
Sydnie cared deeply for the people in her life, going above and beyond to express her love and commitment to those she cherished most. Intuitive and empathetic to the needs of others, Sydnie would often go out of her way to make you feel valued and understood, placing your needs above her own.
Those who knew Sydnie best also knew her fiery, passionate side – an unrelenting determination to defend those she loved most and fight for what she knew to be true. She was adored by family, friends, classmates, colleagues, students, and anyone who had the opportunity to share space with her. Sydnie was fiercely loved and will be incredibly missed.
In a celebration of Sydnie’s life, a private graveside Ceremony will be held at Alto Reste Cemetery presided by Father Les Drewicki. Anyone wishing to make a memorial donation in Sydnie’s honour is asked that it be made directly to the Central Alberta Cancer Centre ( for the overwhelming care and support shown by staff to Sydnie throughout the last 4 years, who made her feel so safe and loved.
