The woman believed to be the oldest living Canadian has died in B.C. at the age of 112.
Sum Ying Fung died Dec. 6, seven weeks short of her 113th birthday, while receiving treatment for pneumonia in Burnaby General Hospital.
Fung was born in 1899 in Guangdong, China — four years before the Wright brothers first flight and nearly 10 years before the first Model T Ford rolled off the assembly line.
Her husband, Chong Lim Fung, came to Canada in 1911 and later returned to China to marry her. He would return often to Canada to work and go back home to visit his growing family of three children.
But Canada's immigration rules didn't allow Sum Ying Fung to join her husband in Vancouver.
Those were some very hard times for her, said son, Fung Suey Kee.
"Second World War, she had a very difficult time …raising the family," he said.
In 1954, Sum Ying Fung was allowed to immigrate with her children, settling in Vancouver's Chinatown.
In 1967, her husband died and the family moved to East Vancouver.
When Fung was 90, she underwent brain surgery, but recovered and soon after that, she travelled the world with many of her family members, visiting Germany, France, Italy.
They returned to China for a visit at a tumultuous time — the democratic uprising of the late 1980s, when tanks rolled in the streets and hundreds of protesters were killed.
"In 1989, Tiananmen Square. She is there. We are there," her son said.
She last flew on a passenger jet on a visit to her son in California in 2010, when she was 111.
Fung's 112th birthday last Jan. 27 was marked with a proclamation from the City of Vancouver and a letter from the Queen.
Her son said Fung had some quarrels with modern society, especially skimpy bathing suits, and wore nothing less than a dress on a visit to the beach in Hawaii.
She also believed tap water could be contaminated and insisted on only drinking water that had been boiled.
Fung is survived by a son, daughter, 14 grandchildren, 25 great grandchildren and two great-great grandchildren.
A litte boy goes to his Dad and asks ,what is politics ?
Dad says , well son ,let me try to explain it this way .
I am the head of the family ,so call me the prime minister .
Your mother is the administrator of the money, so we call her the government .
We are here to take care of your needs ,so we call you the people .
The 女管家nanny ,We will consider her the working class .
And your baby brother ,we will call him the future .
Now ,think about that and see if it makes sense .
so the little boy goes off to bed thinking about what dad has said ,
later that night ,he hears his baby brother crying ,so he gets up to check on him.
He finds that baby has severely soiled his nappy so the little boy goes to his porent's room and finds his mother asleep , not wanting to wake her .He goes to the nanny's room .Finding the door locked, he peeks in the keyhole and sees his father in bed with the nanny, so he gives up and goes back to bed .
