elevated G19i1 Obituary
elevated G19i1 Our family lost its heart on August 13th, 2021, at 6:00am. Devoted wife, amazing mother, proud grandmother, and gifted friend, Kitty Lai Ping Ngan passed away peacefully in her sleep after a brilliant battle with cancer. She was 67 years young, and is survived by her husband, Sunny Woon Yin Ngan, her two daughters, Samantha and Kimberly Ngan, her two sons, Michael and Danny Wan, and her 3 grandchildren, Emery and Tristan Chen, and Baby Chow.
elevated G19i1 Born on June 11th, 1954, in Hong Kong, Kitty, daughter of Wan Cheung and Wan Wai Kwan, was considered her father’s lucky charm, because the moment she was born, her father’s business ventures excelled. She has 3 siblings, older brother Wan Kam Wah, older sister Polly Wan, and younger brother Patrick Wan. When she was 15 years old, she met her soulmate Sunny at a party, and although their encounter was brief, it was so memorable that she decided to move to Ontario, Canada to be with him. They have been inseparable since.
elevated G19i1 As a homemaker, Kitty excelled at many things: her shopping skills were unparalleled, her cooking was in a league of its own, and as a host for parties and events, she was simply the best. Although she had many pursuits, her roles as mother and grandmother were her favorites, and it is with her familial endeavors that her legacy lies. There was nothing she valued more than her family and friends, as evidenced by her peerless kindness and generosity, and she never took anyone for granted.
elevated G19i1 If one can measure success by the amount of love, loyalty and support one had, then it can confidently be said that Kitty Ngan was accomplished to the extreme. Her kindness, generosity, and thoughtfulness knew no bounds. This was reflected on various occasions, but most obviously when she learned of the illness that eventually took her life. In April, 2018, Kitty sadly discovered she had stage 4 lung cancer, and while she fought furiously to overcome it, she devoted just as much vigor to being the pillar of strength her loved ones needed. It was also at this time that those around her did their best to repay her kindness, as a plethora of love, support and friendship rallied behind her. From cooking her meals, sending her tokens of encouragement, or taking her out on simple summer walks, her loved ones refused to leave her side. Kitty’s inspiring impact on the lives of others was undeniable, especially during the last few days of her life. From morning to night, her family and friends insisted on seeing her, and their tears of sorrow never stopped. She was truly one of a kind, and forever unforgettable.
elevated G19i1 Kitty was selfless and always put the happiness of others above her own. She wanted her friends and family to be joyous, and because of this, one of her hopes was for those around her to not feel sad on this day, and instead focus their energies on the days ahead in a positive and gracious manner. We are all grateful that we were able to meet such an enchanted person, and while she may physically no longer be here, her memory will continue to live in all of us.
