Obituary





Obituary for Ms. Luisa Siy Co

February 3, 1951 – September 30, 2020


It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Luisa Siy Co on September 30th, 2020 at the age of 69 years. She passed peacefully at home with her daughters beside her following a short battle with lung cancer. Luisa will be fondly remembered by her three daughters and their husbands, two grandchildren, five brothers and a sister, along with numerous nieces and nephews.

Born in Manila, Philippines on February 3rd, 1951 to Siy Keng and Dy Po Ti, she spent her formative years there and graduated from Mapua Institute of Technology with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics. She resided in Quezon City where she ran several successful businesses while raising her daughters before emigrating to Vancouver, Canada in 2000.

She was first and foremost a mother in every sense of the word. She was brave to head toward uncertainty in the hope of a better life for her children. Accepting of her daughters’ individuality, she encouraged them to find their own paths; her wise and calm words were a constant guide. Always there to lend sage advice and gentle encouragement when needed, her compassion was valued by all. Her strong work ethic, dedication, and selflessness provided her children an excellent role model. She was gracious, pleasant, and humble. Most of all, she was full of love and would do anything to spend time with her family by taking multiple trips across the globe every year. Her kindness to others will be remembered dearly.

Our family has enjoyed many adventures together with her from the beaches of the Philippines to the forests of the Pacific Northwest and all the way to the heights of the Swiss Alps. Her simple pleasures include Sudoku, jigsaw puzzles, and coin and stamp collecting. She loved tinkering with her hands — be it building Lego structures with her grandkids or assembling electronic products at work. She cherished the companionship of her friends and coworkers.

In honour of Luisa’s life, a memorial cherry blossom tree will be planted at Heritage Gardens Cemetery (Surrey, Canada) and her ashes will rest next to her parents in Eternal Gardens (Manila, Philippines). Her three daughters would like to thank her siblings, family, and friends for the love and support they gave her throughout the years. She will always be remembered as Mama, Ama, Diko, 圓圓, Auntie, Tita, Ate, and Ninang in our hearts.




僅以最沉重的心情訃告,2020年9月30日,施圓圓和肺癌短暫鬥爭後,在三個女兒的陪伴下,家中安祥辭世,享年69歲。她的三個女兒和她們的丈夫、兩個孫子、五個兄弟和一個姐姐,以及眾多的甥侄子女都會深深地懷念她。

1951年2月3日,父母施性澄和李寶治在菲律賓馬尼拉誕下了施圓圓。她畢業於馬布亞理工學院,並獲得數學學士學位。 2000年施圓圓移民加拿大溫哥華前,居住在昆頌市,成功地經營幾家企業,同時撫養著三個女兒。

她是一位名副其實的好母親。為了讓孩子們過上更好的生活,她勇敢地努力面對變幻莫測的世界。她接納了女兒們的個性,並不斷地指導和鼓勵她們找到屬於自己的道路。在她們需要的時候,她一直給予明智的建議和溫和的鼓勵,她的同情心得到了所有人的重視。她的強大職業道德和奉獻與無私的精神,為她的孩子們樹立了一個極好的榜樣。她為人和藹可親,謙虛誠懇。最重要的是,她充滿愛心,並願意通過每年環球旅遊的方式與家人共度時光。她的善良將會被深深銘記。

從菲律賓的海灘到太平洋西北部的森林,直到瑞士阿爾卑斯山的高處,全家和她一起經歷了許多冒險旅行。她很享受簡單的業餘愛好,包括數獨、拼圖、錢幣和集郵。無論是陪孫子們一起搭建樂高建築,還是在工作中組裝電子產品,她都喜歡動手做事。她很珍惜朋友們的陪伴和同事們的相處時光。

施圓圓將被紀念於加拿大素里市的「康全墓園」櫻花樹葬 ,再將骨灰安放於菲律賓馬尼拉的「永恆花園」 ,長眠於父母之墓旁。在此我們感謝她的兄弟姐妹,親朋好友多年來對她的關愛與支持。
