Cindy Ping Fong Chao

February 3, 1962May 21, 2019

Cindy Ping Fong Chao was born on February 3rd, 1962 in China. She was the youngest of two children. From the time she was little, Cindy loved all animals, but especially dogs. She had such a special connection with any dog she ever met.

After graduating from Angelo State University, Cindy moved to Houston to pursue a career in retail management. She tackled every task with passion and enthusiasm. She inspired others with her attitude and hard work. Her aspirations in life were to keep everyone around her happy, keep her dogs content, travel the world and watch as many Korean Dramas as possible.

Cindy left us in the evening hours of Tuesday, May 21st after a short but brave battle with cancer. She is survived by her loving nieces and nephew in Hong Kong. And in Houston, she is survived by her best friend May Lau, Edward Chan, and their two children Isabel and Calvin. She helped raise those children and left an indelible impression on their lives. They were blessed to have two mothers, but have now lost one.

She is also survived by her most precious companions DouDou, Bobo, and JunJun. She can rest assured that all her dogs will be taken in and cared for as she would have cared for them. Her love will be greatly missed by all who knew her.

Cindy was one of my best companions at secondary school days. We did meet each other and had a nice chat when she last returned HK. It will be my everlasting memory of our last encounter.

Cindy, you are courageous and generous. A very good example for your family members.

Cindy you will be missed always and may you be joyful and loving in uniting your father in heaven!

God bless!

I had the pleasure of working side by side with Cindy at Academy. She was always positive and lifted my spirit up with her smile daily. She absolutely loved my dog Paris and Paris loved her right back. Cindy was a person I knew I could count on to make me smile when I came in to work. She was so happy to know that I became a nurse after leaving Academy. Her love was so contagious. She will be missed by so many!

I will miss your lovely smile and your easy laughter. The love of dogs was something we had in common and what reconnected us after so many years. Thank you for showing kindness to my rescue projects over the years. I know there will be many beautiful souls to greet you and escort you on your next journey. They were waiting with bright eyes and wagging tails for the lady that always showed them love and kindness. I wish you peace, my friend.
