elevated 5CPWZ (August 23, 1951 – January 11, 2021)
elevated 5CPWZ It is with tremendous sadness that we announce the passing of Wing Yee Flavia Wong in her 69th year. Beloved wife of Manchiu for 40 wonderful years, loving mother to William, dear sister to Hing Po and Hing Keung, Flavia will also be sadly missed by her fellow parishioners at Sts. Martha and Mary Church and the Catholic Cursillo community.
elevated 5CPWZ Born in Hong Kong, China, Flavia grew up to be a well-adjusted young girl in a loving family. Formed and baptized a Catholic as a teen in a school ran by the Canossian Sisters, she had always been a smart student in an intensely competitive education environment. Studies always seemed effortless for her. She taught briefly after graduation from the University of Hong Kong, before furthering her studies and completing her two Masters at the University of Toronto. Yet, Flavia’s focus in life had always been on family. Her marriage to Manchiu, her God given soulmate, was from the beginning built on the ideal of “the-two-becoming-one”. One strand at a time, they weaved together a shared life of 40 years, ever enriching, reaching its apex at her last breath. Indeed, Flavia’s life is crowned not so much by what she did but by being who she was – a wife and a mom, naturally centered in Love.
elevated 5CPWZ Due to COVID-19 restrictions, there will be a private family funeral service at Sts. Martha and Mary Parish in Mississauga on Saturday, January 16. An entombment will follow at Holy Cross Catholic Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the Wong Family requests that you consider making a donation to St Francis Table, (Parkdale) Toronto in Flavia’s memory.
