It is with great sadness that the family of Judy share the loss of our mom and grandmother. Judy passed away peacefully in her sleep on January 7, 2018, in Toronto. She is survived by her three daughters Tina (BCom’94), Brenda (BCom‘95), and Amelia (BSc‘97); her grandchildren Charlotte, and James; and son-in-law Kwong.
We fondly remember Judy as an outgoing person, and a devoted and caring friend, who kept in touch with people around the world. For her children and grandchildren, she was the original “tiger mom” and doting grandmother who never, ever, forgot a birthday or anniversary. She instilled in her children the same strong work ethic she demonstrated in her own life. Emigrating to Canada on her own, Judy completed her bachelor’s degree and a double master’s degree in chemistry at UBC, one of only two women to complete the Master’s in Chemistry program for her year.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to the Canadian Cancer Society’s Wheels of Hope program and Kensington Hospice (Toronto).
