May Yet-Wah Seto, age 52, returned to the Lord on April 25, 2020 after being diagnosed with terminal cancer 7 months earlier. During her time of illness, she rediscovered her relationship with God after running away from him the past several years. Though she was afraid to die, her faith in Jesus gave her peace.
May was born September 1967 in Toronto, Ontario to Choy Nin and Chu Ling Seto. Diagnosed with cerebral palsy at birth, she learned to fight for many things at an early age and that was evident in her character and how she strived to be independent. She worked hard in her career, taking many courses to advance her learning and knowledge in the insurance/health industry. She considered herself blessed to have worked for 30 years.
May was stubborn, but deep down she had a big childlike heart. Though she had differences with her parents, her primary caretakers, she loved them deeply and did her best to look after them in her own way. She also loved her brother very much and loved being an aunt to her nephews and niece, often referencing them as her “baby”. An avid reader, she loved to share books with her oldest nephew Nathan.
May was kind and friendly to everyone she met. She was authentic to those around her, and she was not afraid to let others know what she thought. She had a large grin and many friendships. She appreciated spending time with the people God placed in her life, including her aunts, uncle, cousins and their families, colleagues, and church friends.
May is survived by her parents, her brother Norman and his wife Judy, and their children Nathan, Jadon and Joelle.
