WANG – Nancy Yan

September 26, 1964 – June 13, 2010

On Sunday June 13, 2010, Nancy Yan Wang finished her journey on the earth peacefully with her entire family by her side. This trip took her exactly 16,696 days.

Nancy was born on Saturday September 26, 1964 in a mid-sized village in Shandong Province, People’s Republic of China. She became the first one in her village to enter a college by 1983. She started her career as an oral surgeon in a district hospital in 1986. She removed thousands of teeth for her patients upon their requests. She also made a lot of people look better by using scalpels and stitches.

In 2000, she moved to Canada, a country where she belongs now, with her excellent son Richard, to meet her beloved husband, Felix, who happens to be a tooth-lover (one who loves pulling teeth), too. They bore a beautiful princess, Carol, in 2002 who inherits both mom and dad’s merits on top of those God has given to herself. What a happy family!

In the last twenty three months, she bravely fought against a cancer with great support from the family, the church, and friends. Huge thanks are also given to the palliative care units in the Calgary Health Region for their care and attention given to her.

She is now survived by all three members of her loving family.

A Memorial Service will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S, Chapel of the Bells (2720 Centre Street North) on Sunday, June 20, 2010 at 2:30 p.m. Please forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

In living memory of Nancy Yan Wang, 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.

Offer Condolence for the family of WANG – Nancy Yan

    像梦一样, 我不相信。 生命如此年轻,你却离我们而去。我们为你哭泣, 更为你惋惜! 你说你会回来,让我们在温哥华守候,等待你。可你这一走,却成了永别,我们再也见不到你。你如此清纯,美丽, 你的笑容将会永远留在我们的心里;你是如此的坚强,对生命不轻易放弃; 你渴望美好的生活,为此你付出了极大的努力, 甚至不断透支你的身体。现在美好的生活刚刚开始,可你偏偏就这样离去。愿你在上帝的身边,不再有痛苦,不再烦恼,不再有劳累,不再有忧郁。幸福和快乐永远相伴与你。
    今天,我们为你送行,祭奠你的在天之灵,相信你已化为快乐的天使,永远,永远和我们在一起。

    It is hard to accept the fact that she left us forever, even though I know she has been fighting with the disease for long time. In my heart I always hoped she can recover from the disease, like those in successful stories I read. Dear Lord, please accept this soul, she belongs to you. May she rest in peace and joy. May the sorrow hearts of her beloved ones also get comforted during this difficult time.

    怀念她的美丽,坚强。她曾经那么真实地活在我们中间。愿她在天堂,永有喜乐,平安。也愿主爱安慰她在世的一家老少。

    福堂,
    我们为王艳的离去感到非常的惋惜,她温柔的声音始终在我们耳边响起,难以忘怀.
    同时我们也深深地体会到失去我们最亲爱的人有多痛,因为丁向阳的母亲在上月突然离世,一向身体健康的母亲在没有任何征兆,身边没有一个人的情况下突然离开了我们,连一句嘱托都没有.虽然是在睡中走的,看去很平安,但仍然让我们无法去相信这个事实.
    但我们很幸运,我们认识了神,在我们最痛的时刻有神给我们力量.同时我们也有安慰,我们在地上只是暂时的分离,因为我们在天上还能相聚.我们也是靠着神走出悲伤.福堂,我们永远会在你的身边支持你,也愿意与你分享我们与神同在的经历.哈利路亞!

  32. 王燕,但愿真的有天堂,希望你在天堂过的好一些。

    马上就是你3年的祭日了,这3年里,最大的安慰,似乎是梦宇走出了痛苦,自己独立了,现在马上是军官了。遗憾的是他放弃了牙医offer,也违背了你的心愿,但是我们已经尽力去说服他。他已经有了自己的思想,独立行为能力了,希望你在天堂能继续保佑他。

    即使你走了那么多天了,但是我们仍然很怀念你,因为你是我我们曾经的最好的朋友。
