Remembering Fay Neuber 1959-2015

Fay Neuber ’83 graduated with a degree in Chemistry from Trent and started Mundus, a waste management company which became a runaway success almost immediately. She made Trent proud. Fay was not only an excellent business woman and scientist but a warm and kind person. She described herself as an eagle who held many people on her wings. Her loving generosity benefitted many people around her. Even when Fay was diagnosed with cancer, she remained positive. She was very hopeful that she would make it. During her treatment she made many new friends amongst others with cancer and care providers. To the end, Fay was full of light. Her last words were “I love you!”  and she repeated these 3 beautiful words over and over. She lived a vibrant life and touched all those who were fortunate to be part of her circle.
