elevated txqZ1 Sun, Anna
elevated txqZ1 Peacefully passed away on September 18, 2020 at the age of 76. Beloved wife of Anthony. Caring and devoted mother to Selena (Richard), Clement (Cathy) and Martin (Judy). Proud “PoPo” to Justin, Braden, Jacqueline, Alex, Wesley, Noah and Liam. Anna will be lovingly remembered in the hearts of all her brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews, family and many friends.
elevated txqZ1 She arrived in Canada at the age of 18 from Macau to study at Marymount College and then McGill University, eventually becoming a teacher. She settled in Toronto where she met her husband Anthony and raised their children. Like all teachers, she started with supply teaching jobs and long-term occasional jobs. Eventually settling into a permanent position at Central Commerce High School where she spent over 15 years as a beloved and dedicated math teacher to many students, many of whom she still keeps in touch with. After her retirement, she started her next phase of life deeply involved with the care of her grandchildren. She couldn’t be a prouder grandmother attending every concert she could with her camera ready to capture their talents.
elevated txqZ1 Besides helping to take care of grandchildren, Anna and Tony also found time to travel the world, visiting distant relatives, enriching their beliefs by visiting the Holy Lands and soaking the sun on several large cruise ships. They would even plan multiple trips to Disney World with their grandchildren because to them it’s worth seeing the smiles on their faces.
elevated txqZ1 Anna will always be remembered for her kind and generous soul. She always listened to her friends and family and enjoyed her time performing Tai Chi and volunteering at schools leading children in saying the rosary. Anna also liked to boast that she was a good driving instructor, with her “students” passing on the first try 100% of the time.
elevated txqZ1 The family would like to thank all the staff at Mount Sinai Hospital for the care and dedication they committed to helping Anna especially during this pandemic.
