Obituary For Tang (Tammy) Shu Fen

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Tang (Tammy) Shu Fen in Grande Prairie on December 8, 2022 at 92 years of age.

Tang was born in Guangzhou, China on August 5, 1930 to a scholarly family and was herself a talented student from a young age. Throughout elementary and middle school her outstanding academic performance earned her bags of rice from her schools – a highly coveted reward during the World War II Era. She continued on to the prestigious Zhixin Middle School followed by Renmin University of China. Upon the completion of her Financial Management Degree, Tang embarked on a successful career in finance. Tang proudly served as the Ministry of Finance of the State Council of China and the General Manager of the Office of Guangzhou Light Industry Bureau, continually performing her work with dedication and excellence. Not only was Tang the perfect model worker, she was also a devoted, caring and selfless mother to her two beloved children, Yang and Sue. Due to the turmoil caused by the Cultural Revolution in China, Tang led her family to immigrate to Canada in 1983. Through her perseverance, dedication and relentless hard work, Tang was able to build a new life with her family, being the first to face any obstacle with a brave face and strong will. Her family is forever grateful for the sacrifices she made and the kindness and grace she showed while doing so.

Tang is survived by her cherished children Yang (Crystal) Su and Sue (Jack) Alexander, two grandchildren Ian (Lisan) Alexander and Alan (Spenser) Su and two great-granddaughters Arianna and Everly Alexander.

At 12:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 17th, 2022 all are welcome to join Tang’s family and friends at Bear Creek Funeral Home11802 99 Avenue Grande Prairie, to honour and bid farewell to their treasured matriarch. Care entrusted to Bear Creek Funeral Home 780 830 7742

    Sorry for your loss. What remember most about your mother. She used to walk to the mall. I saw her lots when I was driving to work. I started to walk to work but my body blood thickens in the cold so can’t do that now. It is actually amazing on what you see when you walk. Bill Mah

    We would like to extend our condolences to Yang and family over the loss of your mother. She was a devoted mother and obviously led quite the extraordinary life in China. As loyal and devoted as she was to you, you in turn provided her a wonderful life. Dick and Charlene
