Pat Mui was a loving, caring, kindhearted, affectionate and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister-in-law and friend to everyone.
Pat Mui was born in 中國廣東省順德縣大良鄉 Daliang, Shunde, Foshan, Guangdong, China on February 12, 1924. She was the 8th and last child of the family. Lived her childhood in poverty. She never had any formal education but yet with her diligence and a lot of hard-works, she taught herself to read. She also learnt and worked as a textile worker in her teen years. During the war, she escaped to 廣洲灣Guangzhouwan, 湛江市 Zhanjiang, Guangdong, China where she ran into her long lost childhood friend Yeung Po Kau who later became her husband. They moved to Hong Kong in their 20s. She worked hard and dedicated her whole life to the family. She took care of the family with the upmost love, care and dedication. Aside from taking care of everyone, she even worked side-jobs to help support the family. Her love, hard work and dedication had built a strong bond of the family and was the foundation of success for her children. She was truly the matriarch of the family. She and Po Kau immigrated to Canada in 1988 to live with their children and started their retirement lives. Since then they had lived in Winnipeg MB, Halifax NS, Ottawa ON, London ON and finally resided in Markham ON. She enjoyed playing mahjong and listening to Chinese pops and opera.
