Jeanette Tsan-Ying Wong Florence, BSN’67

Jeanette died August 24, 2012, in Edmonton after a strenuous one-year battle with cancer.

Most recently, she was a nursing educator at Grant MacEwan University in Edmonton. She is still “Mrs. Florence” to the many nurses who attended her classes and preceptorships over the years. Jeanette made significant contributions to the Edmonton branch of the UBC Alumni Association. She is survived by her husband, Wayne, daughter, Michella, and two cherished grandchildren.
