It is with great sadness and broken hearts that we share the news of the passing of Kwok Lin at the Markham Stouffville Hospital on September 12th, 2021 at the age of 89.
Predeceased by her beloved husband, Ko Fook Yiu (高福耀) and late son, Ko Sai Yao (高世友), she is the beloved mother of Louisa & David, Jennie & Raymond, Janet, Simon & Elaine, Liza & Ernie, Judi & Fred, cherished grandmother of Ken, Cecile & Andrew, Wendy & Michael, Celine & Vince, Allison & Tim, Ian, Jacqueline, Sandi, Jasmine, Kelvin and dear great-grandmother to Cameron, Leia, Aidan, and Audrey.
Kwok Lin was born in Guangdong, China on January 28th, 1932. Our mother was filled with immense strength and kindness, devoting her life to raising her six children single-handedly and helping those in need. She was a very determined self-learnt educator, a passionate knitter and most of all, a great cook to her family. She became a Canadian citizen in 1995, living between Hong Kong and Toronto with her children and grandchildren.
Always enjoyed her favourite brandy during dinners, we are sure she is now having a drink in heaven with her family and friends. We are very reluctant to say goodbye to her, but know that she is now at peace and is reunited with Dad and her family in heaven. Her remarkable strength will live on amongst us in generations. Her absence will be felt greatly and she will be dearly missed by her family. Our mother will always be in our hearts, we will always love you.
With unending love from your children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, farewell and rest in peace.
