elevated d88B7 Obituary
elevated d88B7 Pansy Yuet-Sum Tsang, 90, of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, passed away peacefully at home, on June 29, 2020, after a year-long struggle with lung cancer.
elevated d88B7 She was born as Yuet-Sum Kwong in 1930 in Hong Kong, into a traditional family of established businessmen. During the Japanese occupation of Hong Kong, she lived with her family in her ancestral village in Foshan, and stayed there until the end of the war. She then returned to Hong Kong, attended and graduated from the French Convent School.
elevated d88B7 Pansy married Michael Man-Kwong Tsang in 1949. They lived in Hong Kong until 1972, and raised four daughters. When Michael started a new business venture in 1972, they moved to San Jose, Costa Rica. In 1981, Michael and Pansy migrated to Canada and started a new life there because their daughters had all settled down in North America. Pansy and Michael returned to Hong Kong in 1987 to be close to Pansy’s mother and for Michael’s consultation work. When Michael finally retired in 2002, they moved back to Toronto and have stayed there ever since.
elevated d88B7 Anyone who has known Pansy would never forget her smile and her elegance. She was always kind and remarkably generous. By her own example, she taught her daughters dignity, grace, gratitude, and the importance of putting family before all else. Her home was always impeccably kept. Pansy was a connoisseur of fashion and cuisines. She became friends with chefs and managers of top Chinese restaurants in Toronto and was herself a gourmet cook. She loved to travel, taking trips on the road, cruises, and train. “I have visited many places on every continent of the planet,” she said as she beamed with joy. At home, both Pansy and Michael enjoyed singing Cantonese opera and karaoke. They danced a good cha-cha and the jitterbug in their younger days. As time went by, they played more mahjong and watched drama series. Pansy would not miss the daily morning or evening news until the end, and very much enjoyed sharing her opinions on current events around the world. Even when her health was in decline, she would still sit at the desk next to her bed and read for a while before retiring every night. Pansy was immensely proud of her family, for whom she has left beautiful, loving memories.
elevated d88B7 Pansy is survived by her loving husband of 71 years, and her daughters and sons-in-law: Felicia and Siulam Lee, Shirley and Raymond Kwong, Pamela Tsang, Linda Tsang and Herbert Hui. She is also survived by her grandchildren and their spouses: Terence and Nina Lee, Timothy Lee and Ella Willard-Schmoe, Serena Lee, Andrew Kwong and Tiffane Wang, Brandon Kwong and Bonnie Huang, and two great-grandchildren: Henry Lee-Willard and Ethan Kwong.

elevated d88B7 二零一九年六月，經醫確診母患第四期肺癌。遍訪多方名醫以謀良方，不果。奈母親難忍藥物治療之苦，終擇於有限時間內，盡享尊嚴精彩人生。丈夫與女兒均有同感，萬般不捨之下，唯有尊重其意願，盡心讓她開懷安享餘下歲月。
elevated d88B7 母親原籍廣東省南海縣，一九三零年生於香港，抗戰期間暫避居於東村祖居，返港後，繼續肆業於聖保碌修院女子中學。一九四九年與家父曾文光先生結婚，育有四女。一九七二年，父親在中美洲哥斯達黎經商。雖然當時不諳西班牙語，母親亦毅然攜兩幼女隨往。母親的廚藝和款客之道，使她在當地華僑圈裏成了一時的風雲人物。一九八一年移民加拿大，一九八七年隨父親回港，二零零二年父親退休後再度遷返加拿大，兩人一直定居住於多倫多。
elevated d88B7 母親燦爛的笑容和雍容的儀態是最教人難忘的。她鑽研時尚與美食，有其獨到的心得。女兒還小時，她曾經設計及縫紉女兒們的衣服。女兒成長後，她仍不斷為女兒挑選衣裝。在多倫多居住期間，母親與好幾位高級粵菜餐館的經理及員工成為好友，她自己亦煮得一手好菜。母親喜愛旅遊，尤其欣賞大自然的景色和各地的風土人情。不外遊時，生活也是多姿多彩的。年青時，父親與母親有時跳跳交際舞，後來一起唱粵曲，亦甚喜歡玩麻雀牌、看電視劇。每天的晨早新聞及晚間新聞是少不得的，每晚臨睡前的半小時閱讀亦一直維持至最後的一個月。
elevated d88B7 雖然丈夫、女兒、及外孫幾乎佔據了母親全部的內心世界，但母親對其他身邊的人總表示摯誠的關懷，亦常予以熱情的款待。母親持家有道，照顧丈夫和女兒無微不至，孫輩亦是在外祖母的寵愛中長大的。母親留給我們的是永恆的愛、一生的精彩、無限的美好回憶。母親一生無憾，我們是有福的。
