Mrs. Shui Yin Helena Kan

May 21, 1926September 22, 2016

On September 22nd, 2016, Helena Shui Yin Kan, passed away peacefully in her home surrounded by her loving family. She was predeceased by her beloved husband of 60 years, Ramon Y. W. Kan in 2010. Helena was born in Manila, Philippines on June 22nd, 1924. She graduated from St. John’s University in Shanghai, China with a Bachelor of Education and became a teacher at St. Paul Primary School in Hong Kong. She immigrated to Vancouver in 1967 with her family and raised her four children whilst her husband commuted to Hong Kong until his retirement in 1980. Helena was known for her strong family values. She had a love for cooking, swimming, opera and was generous and loving to her family and friends. She was a devout Catholic who lived her life according to her faith. Her beauty, style and elegance were greatly admired which was complemented with her radiant skin complexion. Helena was extremely blessed to witness the recent marriages of her two grandsons and lived to become a great- grandmother. She will be lovingly missed by her children, Royston(Rita), Ramona, Helena (Andrew), and Hubert (Rebecca), grandchildren, Sheryl, Alexander (Maggie), Jonathan (Angela), Kristen, Heston (Charing) and Jordan, and great-grandsons, Oliver and Russell, and many nieces and nephews around the world. She has fulfilled an amazing Cinderella love story in reuniting with her husband, Ramon. The family would like to extend their thanks to Helena’s caregiver, Neresa, for her constant care and devotion. Special thanks to Dr. Clifford Chan-Yan for his dedication and compassion. We pray for the repose of her soul. May perpetual light of Jesus shine upon her and may she rest in eternal peace.
