An angel has been sent to heaven to be with her late husband, Nay Sen Seto. Now together they will watch over the rest of us. It is with heavy hearts that we share with you the passing of Amy Seto (Shun Tao Ng,1936-2022) in her 86th year. She passed away peacefully on Tues. March 22, 2022 at The Meadows nursing home in Ancaster, Ontario, surrounded by her loving family. Beloved wife of the late Nay Sen, Amy will be deeply missed by her daughters Jenny (Ron) Seto-Vanderlip, Cindi (Mario) Seto-Domanico, and son Scott (Donica) Seto, her grandchildren, Matthew (Shannon) Vanderlip, Taylor (Maeva) Vanderlip, Brittany (Kosta) Vanderlip, Carly Domanico, Nikki Domanico and Ciara Seto, and her great-granddaughters, Elise Vanderlip and Nora Vanderlip. They will miss their Popo dearly.
Amy will also be sincerely missed and remembered by her many surviving sisters and brother, nieces and nephews in Hong Kong, Denver and California, and many other relatives in Toronto and St. Catharines.
Amy was born in Hong Kong in 1936. She immigrated to Canada in January 1960 to marry the love of her life, Nay Sen. Together they would work many years in their family restaurant business, The Maple Leaf Cafe (St. Catharines) and Club 19 (Niagara on the Lake). They later moved on to work with relatives in Fort Erie and Niagara Falls.
Amy spent the last 7 years at The Meadows nursing home in Ancaster where she was well taken care of by the amazing staff. There, even though she was dependent on others for care, she continued to make everyone around her smile. The family extends their deepest gratitude to the nurses, PSWs, the support staff and The Meadows administration for making the last 7 years of her life comfortable and enjoyable.
Amy enjoyed time with her children and had the opportunity to travel with them to many places around the world. Most of all she looked forward to the visits from her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She loved to cook for them and made the best Cantonese chow mein, beef and green beans and waffles.
Amy will always be remembered for her strength, selflessness, an enormously kind heart and her care for others. We can only hope to become the amazingly strong person that she was. It’s no wonder she was the favourite aunt, Popo, sister, cousin and friend. Amy’s time on earth was a gift to all of us. We will miss her dearly.
Memorial donations can be made to the Cancer Society or the Heart and Stroke Society.
