Nancy Yuen Mei Wong, age 76, passed away peacefully on the morning of May 2nd, 2021 at Michael Garron Hospital after a courageous 16 month battle with cancer . She was born August 14, 1944 in Macau, China to Kin Cho and Kan Hung. She married Suey Che (Peter) Wong in 1965, moved to Toronto ,Canada in 1966 and started what would be an exemplary life.
Nancy balanced career and family. After semi-retirement from office life where she worked as book-keeper at Singer Lighting and later as benefits administrator at Goodwill Industries, she started a second and fulfilling career as a real estate agent with Living Realty. But she was most proud of her own children and grandchildren. And she also always loved spending time with her extended family on special occasions. She treated everyone she met and knew with kindness and acceptance.
She discovered a passion in ballroom dancing and participated in several dance competitions as well as instructed. One of her other hobbies was to spend time tending to a beautiful garden in their Toronto home. When she and her husband moved to their condo, she still kept beautiful plants and vegetables on their balcony. In recent years, Nancy and Peter would enjoy their life’s successes by taking trips and cruises to Europe, Scandinavia, Caribbean, and Alaska. She also found time to learn the internet to stay connected with friends and family around the world and found joy in cooking for her family using recipes and techniques she learned.
Nancy is survived by her husband Suey Che Wong; her sister Yuen Wah; Sons Warren and wife Betty, Wallace and wife Marissa, and Warner; grandchildren Tyler, Aidan and Jason.
