WONG – Mayme Rose

October 1, 1944 – March 14, 2011

Mayme passed away peacefully after a courageous battle with Chronic Lymphatic Leukemia. Mayme is survived by her sisters Faye Thompson and Margaret Wong of Calgary. Mayme will be deeply missed by her long-time friend and traveling buddy Lynne Craig and her adopted family, The Craigs, as well as numerous friends and her special friend Jasmine. Mayme retired in 1993 after a long and successful career with AGT. In her retirement Mayme enjoyed many world-wide adventures, hiking, camping, picnics in the Kananaskis, gardening, games days, her weekly walk downtown for dim sum and her Wednesday beer with her “boys”. She was a giving person who spent countless hours volunteering with the food bank and being a special caregiver to two of her favourite people, Gena and Ken Dopson. Mayme loved San Francisco and went annually to enjoy the Chinese New Year’s parade. She also loved those “damned Yankees” and went to New York to watch them play for her sixty-fifth birthday. At Mayme’s request there will be no formal service. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

    To Mayme’s family and friends,

    Mayme was a manager in Operator Services when I joined the A.G.T. family in 1980. I will always remember her as approachable, down-to-earth and one with a good head on her shoulders. Over the years if/when I ran into Mayme it would always be when she was out n’ about and ALWAYS on-foot. Seeing Mayme’s obituary is somewhat surreal in that she struck me as someone who would live (and walk!) forever… May your memories of her always remain clear.

    Mayme volunteered in Distribution here at the CIFB for many years and we all loved her. She had a wondeful sense of humor and we all
    enjoyed that humor with her. We all admmired her tenacity to do the Dragon Boats every year. We suffered a great loss when she was unable to continue her volunteering here at the CIFB last Sept. We still miss her smiling face and offer you our sincere condolences on your loss.

    My deepest sympathy to Faye and Margaret, and to Lynne who I may have met once many years ago. I have very fond memories and her stories of time spent with Mayme; camping, dim sum, parties, delivering dry-cleaning to name a few and also recall her Dad teaching me how to cook rice. Even though we had not kept in touch over the years, I was deeply saddened to hear of her passing. Mayme was a very determined, busy, fun-loving, vibrant person. May you also carry the fond memories of the good times you had with her.
