It is with great sadness that we announce that our mother, grandmother and great grandmother So Ying Wong went to be with our Lord Jesus on November 7, 2020 at the age of 100 years old in Edmonton, Alberta, a place she called home since coming to Canada from Hong Kong in 1974.
So Ying is survived by her two children: Woon-Yin (Rebecca) of Edmonton, AB and Wendy (Philip) of Ajax, ON, her seven grandchildren: Noel (Christine), Jeremy, Jeoff (Sheena), Alfred (Laura), Janice (Pat), Esther (Mike), and Timothy; and her eleven great grandchildren: Isaac, Keagan, Tatum, Anycka, Asher, Matthew, Victoria, Joel, Meredith, Shauna, and Keilin.
She was our Hero and our Rock always making sure we had enough to eat. She will be deeply missed by all of us and the many that experienced her kindness through her cooking and baking, fresh vegetables from the garden and her knitting of hats and scarves.
She is now with our Savior and we will be forever blessed by her life shared with us through her many years.
The family would also like to thank the staff at Touchmark at Wedgewood for their love and care for So Ying over the past few years.
A celebration of So Ying will be held Saturday, November 14, 2020 at 1:00 pm at Connelly-McKinley Funeral Home. To watch the service, please click here.
