Auntie Lisa, it’s an honour to have known such a kind and selfless soul. She cared so much for everyone around her and had a presence that lit up any room. Whenever she came to visit from Calgary she would bring sour plums from Crystal Mall because I mentioned I liked them once, and whenever she cooked she would make a veggie, seafood and meat version of the dish to accommodate all my families dietary restrictions. Thank you for teaching me about Chinese traditions that otherwise would have been lost and for sharing so many laughs over the dinner table. Rest easy.

Lisa and I used to work for the same team. She was very kind, hard working, always willing to help others, and yes, could be a bit mischievous sometimes. Rest in peace. We will miss you greatly.

Sweet Lisa,

I miss you so much! Can’t believe we won’t be attending our retirement seminar together! You left us too early.

I’m so glad you transferred to Vancouver and I got to know you and work with you. I would always find you diligently working at your desk and you would need to be persuaded to take a break and go for a walk. I look back fondly of our times together- the short/long walks, the ‘surprise’ lunch we organized for our team leader, the Christmas meals we shared...

You’re a special lady!

‘Those we love don't go away, they walk besides us every day. Unseen, unheard, but always near, so loved, so missed, so very dear’

My deepest sympathy to the family and to all those whose lives had been touched by Lisa!

Rest now, my friend.

My Dearest "Sis" Lisa, we worked together in Calgary. Is was easy to tell when Lisa was happy, because her eyes would light up and sparkle! She was funny and had a great sense of humour, but she would listen to my troubles and be there as a solid support. She never judged people, that was not her way. We both loved bargain shopping and we would always be on the look out for a great deal! She made the best radish cake, with dried shrimp and sausage. I miss our long telephone chats, especially about the kids. I wish we could have been together more often, we always talked about travelling together, and in retirement we would open a beauty salon, Sadly this was not our path my friend. May God give you Peace and rest from every pain and and sorrow my dear Lisa! I will never forget you, but we will meet again, that I know, until then, with all my Love Constance

I’m still unable to process the loss I feel as I can’t imagine not seeing auntie Lisa’s smile whenever we saw her. I grew up always looking forward to her visits or going to Vancouver to spend the summer with her. I fondly remember her curling my hair and bringing me to Expo 86, PNE, and various yummy Asian restaurants. I always cried when I’d go back to Kamloops cause I missed her. She was bubbly, warm, and always affectionate. When I got older I would go visit her, uncle Mo, and Jonathan in Calgary. We would go to the stampede, sightsee and go shopping. She was such a wonderful loving aunt and I will miss her tremendously. She was a strong, hardworking, and loving person who I know is in good company with my mom in heaven. I will always have her in my heart.

Thinking of all the times we went for a walk and grabbed a Starbucks while talking about last weekend’s events or anticipating next weekend’s plans. Enjoyed all those afternoons condo shopping too. Will never forget Lisa’s laugh, enthusiasm, and love for her family.

Wing & Jonathan,
My deepest condolences on your loss. I was heartbroken to hear the news of Lisa's passing.
I had the pleasure of working with her for many years, before the move to BC. She trained me in collections, then years later when she came to Refund Integrity and I got to teach her. There was always such joy when talking about her family, especially, you Jonathan.
May the memories bring smiles and warmth.
🤗❤️Jill

I had the pleasure of knowing Lisa as we were "work neighbours" in Calgary. What a tragedy to lose such a wonderful person. My deepest condolences to her family. Jonathan your mother spoke of you often very lovingly and with great pride. I was sad when she moved to BC but so glad that she was close to her family in the end. In the words of Billy Joel "Only the good die young". Lisa will be missed by all who had the luck to have known her.

I have lovely childhood memories of hanging out with Lisa at Hoy's and AB's Groceries. She ALWAYS put family first. Lisa was a very positive, caring and hard working individual with an infectious smile and laugh. She is dearly missed. My sincere condolences to the family - we are all blessed to have had Lisa a part of our life. Take good comfort in those special memories.

Auntie Lisa was the sweetest and nicest person. I remember she would always take me out shopping or go on fun adventures when I was a kid. In addition she would be the one to invite the family for dim sum and host dinner parties. Lisa was extremly caring, she would always make sure I took food home for lunch tomorrow.
She had a big heart for everyone. We will miss you ❤
