With great sadness, we announce the passing of our beloved wife, mother and grandmother, Lilian Po Chun Tam (nee Wong). Lilian passed away peacefully with family by her side at the age of 73.
She will forever be missed by all of us and lovingly remembered for her beautiful smile, love of family, tremendous generosity and “up for anything” approach to life.
Lilian was pre-deceased by her parents, Mr. Yat Wing Wong and Mrs. Chai Ho Law Wong, and her brothers, Harris Wong, Brian Wong and Philip Wong.
Lilian leaves behind her husband, Chi-Yin Tam; her eldest son Vince Tam, daughter-in-law Julie Tam, grandchildren Zachary and Naomi; her younger son Wayne Tam, daughter-in-law Darlene Tam, grandchildren Savannah and Clarissa; and her daughter Sabrina Tam, son-in-law Jeremy Smith, and granddaughter Cassidy. She is survived by her siblings, nieces, nephews, extended family and many friends.
The family would like to thank Dr. Michael Raphael and home care nurse Margaret for the exceptional care they provided to Lilian, as well as the staff at the Sunnybrook Palliative Care Unit for their kindness and compassion.
Due to COVID restrictions, a private service for the immediate family will be held at Pine Hills Funeral Centre followed by interment at Pine Hills Cemetery on Friday, May 14th, 2021.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Lilian’s honour to the Canadian Cancer Society or Sunnybrook Foundation (Odette Cancer Centre) would be appreciated.
