Elaine Wong passed away unexpectedly on June 22, 2021 at the age of 77. Elaine was the first-born of her parents, Henry and Doreen Kuai. She is survived by her husband Raymond Wong, her sons Jason (Caroline) and Justin (Jiwon), and four grandchildren Maximilian, Madeline, Lucas and George. She is also survived by her siblings, Elia, Eve, Eleen and Eddy.
Elaine was born in Shanghai, China and at a young age relocated to Hong Kong. There, she met her husband Raymond while attending Pui Ching Middle School. She graduated from Hong Kong Baptist College and pursued further studies overseas with a Masters of Education at South Dakota State University. In 1970 she had her wedding in the First United Presbyterian Church, Brookings, South Dakota.
Elaine was a workaholic who loved her career at Manulife. She started in 1975 and over the course of 40+ years, worked her way up into various executive management positions in offices spanning from Toronto, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Taiwan and Cambodia.
Elaine was very dedicated to her family, and her selfless nature led to her conservative frugal ways for herself (she liked plain and simple), but always generous towards her family. She loved to look after and spoil her grandchildren. Her favourite hobby was playing Mah-Jong.
