Toronto — Elsie Lue Phong, passed away on Tuesday the 1st of December, 2015 at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre.

She is survived by her husband, Wilbert Lue Phong, children, Jimmy Lue, John Lue, Lily Lue, and Carol Lue, and several grandchildren, all of whom cherished and loved her dearly.

Elsie loved her children and grandchildren and have brought them many joy with her good tempered care. Her selfless and easy going nature projects a kindness and joy that is contagious to those who meets her.

She loves to travel and sample different cuisine. In her last days, her hampered mobility, placed a damper on these wishes. Although we will all miss her dearly, we have faith that her spirit will find pure freedom, and wish her spirit to:

  • Spread her wings;
  • Travel far;
  • See all you can see;

Your legacy will always be remembered!

The family asks that in lieu of flowers and other gifts, please make a kind donation to the Kidney Foundation of Canada, in memory of Elsie Lue Phong.

A public funeral service with recommended casual dress will be held at the Elgin Mills Cemetery, from 9:30am to 11:30am on December 7th, 2015.

  1. We feel very regretful for the passing away of Aunt Elsie. We can still remember lodging at her houses in China and Canada. We are always grateful to her and Uncle Wilbert who are so warm-hearted and hospitable, making our stay most comfortable and pleasant. We’d like to send our heartfelt condolences to the whole family.

    So sorry to hear of Elsie’s passing. Please accept our condolence. I have fond memories
    of Elsie whom we called Miss Wilbert, having known her from our pass times in Jamaica
    and again reuniting with both Mr. and Mrs. Wilbert in Canada.

    We remember our visit to China in 1994. We stayed in Hong Kong with Elsie and Mr. Wilbert and they took such good care of us.The food was great . cooked by Elsie.
    The recipes were great ! Can I forget her rice and peas! ?’ the, stews and her Chinese recipes!

    We could not accomplish such success with our visit into the village of Zhu Yuan Tou
    our family’s home. She was there to support Mr Wilbert in all his endeavours to interpret
    our Chinese Hakka Dialect, because we did not speak the language.
    Mr Wilbert we are very sorry , so our family say ‘ Rest In Peace’ dear friend.
