Josephine Sau Shan Khoo (Law) passed away peacefully on Tuesday, Oct. 12th in Vancouver, B.C. at the young age of 61.
She is survived by her loving husband Tony and three daughters, Amanda, Isabelle (Brett), and Tara, who will miss her greatly. Josephine will also be missed and remembered by her mother, Teresa and her sisters Cecilia (Frank), Nancy (Allan), Margaret (John), and Irene, as well as many relatives and friends from around the world.
Josephine was born on Sept. 1, 1960, in Hong Kong to parents Stephen Law and Teresa Tong. Her passion for travel and meeting new people led her to become a flight attendant for British Airways and Cathay Pacific. Her travels took her across the globe, but it was during a stop in Vancouver where she met her husband, Tony. They were married for 34 years.
After immigrating to Canada in 1986, Josephine lived in Vancouver, Regina and Toronto, but eventually moved back to Vancouver.
Josephine was an incredibly loving mother. She chose to leave her career to start a family and ended up having three daughters. But throughout her life, she never lost her passion for travel. After moving back to Vancouver in her later years, she returned to the industry and worked in customer service at the Vancouver International Airport.
Josephine will always be remembered for her outgoing, chatty nature, exceptional culinary skills, and adventurous spirit. In memory of her, a viewing and celebration of life will be held at Kearney Funeral Services (450 W. 2nd Ave, Vancouver, B.C.) on Tuesday, Oct. 26th from 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Her burial will follow in mid-November in Toronto.
Her family thanks everyone for their support with prayers, well wishes and flowers sent. If you’d like to contribute, please consider a donation in Josephine’s memory to the BC Cancer Foundation (www.bccancerfoundation.com).
