I am very saddened and with a very heavy heart to inform you of the passing of Stella M.Y. Wong (FA65) on the evening of Wednesday, April 18, at 8:15 p.m., at North York General Hospital.
Stella suffered a massive stroke early Monday morning. For her stay at the hospital till her departure she was surrounded by family and close friends at her bedside.
For the past many years a group of up to eleven FA61 and some FA65 alumni were gathering on almost every one of our Spring luncheon and Fall AGM together, using the functions as mutual excuse to play a game of mahjong and see each other. Stella was a member of this group and it was only last week that she was inquiring about the upcoming event. She shall be missed a great deal from now on. It may also take some time before we could revive this ritual.
Visitation was scheduled for Friday April 27 at 2 to 4 p.m. and also 6 to 8 p.m. with funeral service at the Chapel and burial on Saturday April 28 at 10 a.m. All are to be held at the York Cemetery and Visitation Centre, 160 Beecroft Road; phone number 416-221-3404. Mr. Patrick Lo and Mrs. Winnie Wong (Woo) have consented to the announcement of this sad news in the QESOSA Ontario communication media.
Henry Lee (FA61)
