elevated qooaO Margaret Suk Fong Ngai 魏淑芳, April 2, 1935 – Jun 30, 2022
Our beloved mother, grandmother, sister, godmother, teacher and a friend for many, has returned to The Lord peacefully after a short battle with cancer.
Margaret lived an exemplary life since a very young age. She took care of and raised her younger siblings in Hong Kong, and yet managed to become one of the youngest principals of a catholic primary school at the age of twenty three. She devoted her entire career to education until she retired to Toronto. Thirty years after her retirement she still was affectionately called Principal Ngai, not just by former students and colleagues, but also by new friends she made. She was soft spoken, yet had the mysterious ability to attract nice people to surround her. She was active in her church, and she loved to cook and dance.
elevated qooaO In lieu of flowers, please direct your donation in Margaret’s memory to Chinese Martyrs Catholic Church, or Our Lady Queen of the World Catholic Church, or a charity of your choice.
Principal Ngai was a church friend and a MahJong friend. Before the outbreak of CORVID-19, our group often gathered together. She’s gentle, kind-hearted and friendly. She will be remembered in the years to come. May Principal Ngai rest in peace!
We are deeply saddened that Principal Ngai has left us on a journey to meet God. She was our Principal at Ling To Primary School in 1959 and we remember her as a very kind, gentle and caring Principal.
We will continue to feel her presence:-
1. In the gentle rain in the Spring,
2. In the warm sunshine in the Summer,
3. In the brilliant foliage in the Autumn, and
4. In the quiet and white snow in the Winter.
May God continue to take care of her soul and family.
With deepest condolences to Principal Ngai’s family.

There were a handful of places that I would consider haven in my childhood and Sukgong and Sukpor’s place was one of my favourites.
As a child, I loved visiting Sukpor as it meant a fun-packed day already in my pocket: feeding the turtles, playing with the cat and recycling cookie boxes for arts and crafts. While the adults enjoyed their chat over meals, Sukpor would ensure an ample supply of children magazines for my entertainment. She was forever kind and elegant and always a gracious audience to my childish babbles.
There were only so many fleeting moments in life that one could fully embrace the joys and wonders of being a child. Sukpor had gifted me some fantastic memories that would warm my heart for life. Rest in peace and we will meet again. With love, Kok
Aunt Margaret was the widow of Uncle Kwok Wing, my father, Kwok Chi’s only brother. When Aunt Margaret married Uncle Wing, our family immediately added an intelligent, educated, efficient, thoughtful, loving yet strong member. Through the years, though scattered in Canada, England, the United States and Hong Kong, not only my father, mother, Uncle Wing and Aunt Margaret stayed close, but also the younger generations. Uncle Wing and Aunt Margaret always called me 雪女 (Daughter Shuet) and treated me like one. Aunt Margaret used to send me birthday cards every year until the pandemic hit. Also because of the pandemic, for many months, her children could not visit her in Toronto. Yet she remained strong and cheerful whenever we talked. There was little doubt in my mind she was surrounded by caring friends! It must be God’s blessings that all her children and grandchildren could be with her and care for her during her month-long battle with cancer! She was a lady with strong faith. I know she is at peace and without suffering now! We will meet again one day, but I will miss her and her warm smiles!
I am the eldest grandniece of Suk Por and Suk Gong so I had the privilege to spend the longest time of my generation with this magnificent, precious couple. We used to live just two floors apart. I always liked to play with Suk Por and Suk Gong’s children, my uncles and aunt, as a young child. I was never told once that I was too noisy. I also received mathematics tuition with Suk Gong as my tutor. I knew Suk Por was a school principal but she never associated me with the stern style teacher in the early days as she always had a gentle smile on her face. She was always elegant. As devoted Catholics, Grandaunt and Granduncle not only attended mass faithfully, they followed the Bible’s teaching to heart. I have vivid memories seeing Suk Por and Suk Gong invited their church Fathers from overseas for meals at home. They followed what the Bible says, “Those who are taught the word must share in all good things with their teacher.” (Galatians 6:6) Suk Por was a good cook, too.
I will always remember the birthday cards that Suk Por and Suk Gong sent me, addressing me as “Princess Grace”. They were extremely kind to me and taught me how to be a better person. Suk Por and Suk Gong are our examples. May Suk Por rest in peace. Please send our love to Suk Gong for us in Heaven. We will meet again.
I am very upset to lose Wing Sum, my only aunt as my dad has only one brother, Uncle Wing.
It only seems like yesterday that I started to call her Sum. As I say, I only have one uncle and I only started to call her Sum on her wedding day.
I am not going to repeat what others found virtuous in this great lady. I am honored and grateful to have such an elder in our small family. She was nice to my children, my sister Mo Shuet, my wife Amy and me. My only regret is that I could not return the kindness that she gave to us in abundance. I did rally my whole family to Toronto a few years ago to meet her. Even that was a matter of haste.
Let us take comfort that she is now out of her pain and is with Uncle Wing.
“Men are born to higher destination than that of earth”. Thank you, aunt. I’ll miss you so much.
