CHOW, Linda (Pui Ling)

1934 – Canton, China
2013 – Calgary, Alberta

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beautiful, sweet, loving mother Linda Chow (Pui Ling) on Tuesday, May 14, 2013 at the age of 78.

Linda is lovingly survived by her children, Elvis (Donna) Chow, Sussie (Tai) Wong, Danny Chow, Fred Chow, Wanda Chow (Mark), and Hanna (Allan) Silverthorne; grandsons, Adam and David; granddaughter Ceanna; and many nieces and nephews. Linda was predeceased by her husband Eddie in 1984

Linda loved walking, gardening, travelling, and showed a zest for life that never waivered. She took on all challenges as they were presented with class and dignity. She loved to play mah jong with her friends for hours on end and was bitten with the travel bug later in life as evident in her globetrotting experiences with Danny. Linda had a penchant for the one arm bandits in Las Vegas. Linda’s smile and sparkle will be missed by all who knew and loved her.

A Private Ceremony will be held. Condolences may be forwarded through In lieu of flowers, memorial tributes in Linda’s honour may be made directly to The Alzheimer Society of Calgary, Suite 201, 222 – 58th Avenue S.W., Calgary, AB T2H 2S3, Telephone: (403)290-0110,

In living memory of Linda Chow, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Chapel of the Bells, 2720 CENTRE STREET NORTH, Telephone: 403-276-2296.

    Dearest Hanna, Allan & Chow Family,

    We are so deeply saddened to hear of your dear Mummy’s passing. We simply adored your Mum. She was exceptionally kind, warm and charming with such a lovely mischievous sparkle in her eye. LOVED LOVED LOVED her Chinese pastry and her delicious Chinese soup she made at Christmas. So happy she was able to teach us to make those wonderful home cooked recipes many years back.
    She must be up there smiling down and playing mah jong, and cooking up a storm.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this most difficult time and thinking of all you. We will miss her deeply.

    With love and heartfelt sympathy,

    Veronica & Wayne

    I am so sorry to hear about Mamma’s passing. I met Mamma a few times with Danny and each time. I would give her a hug and a kiss on the cheek and she would always welcome me with her warm eyes and sweet gentle smile. My thoughts and prayers are with Danny and the rest of the family

    Dearest Hanna & Allan,
    Your mom lives in a special place in your heart. That’s why your mom will continue to live even after she passes on. May the memory of your mom give you the same feelings of love and togetherness that you had when she was alive. I’m praying that God grants your family a strength at this time, and that He gives you comfort that is as good as a mother’s touch.
    Our sincerest condolences, Bong-Beth/Kyle-Kyla Espiritu
