Bih Yen Pan
April 02,1950–Oct 05, 2018
Peacefully in her home, Bih Yen Pan, born April 2, 1950 in Tenom, Sabah, Malaysia, went to be with the Lord in Ottawa, Canada on October 5, 2018.
Bih Yen was a kind, generous soul who spent her life caring for those around her. From a young age, she always had a sense of adventure which eventually led her to the UK where she pursued a nursing career. Being the first in her family to make the long journey, she bought a house in Glasgow, Scotland, which she selflessly used to house many friends and relatives from Tenom whom she encouraged to pursue further education abroad. Because of her generosity, many of her friends and family have been blessed with better lives and opportunities that would not have been possible without her. Bih Yen always thought of others before herself, and was always willing to offer a helping hand to those in need.
Bih Yen moved to Canada in the 1970s, where she continued to pursue new challenges in small business. In her later life, she devoted herself to caring for her mother.
She is survived by her 4 brothers, Chi Vui Pan, Chee Kong Pan, Chi Khen Pan, Chee Chung Pan, and her sister, Bih Kun Chin. Our peace comes in knowing she now rests in the eternal joy of the presence of our Lord.
Visitation will be held at the Garden Chapel of Tubman Funeral Homes, 3440 Richmond Road, Nepean on Sunday, October 14th from 1 pm to 2 pm. The funeral service will be held at 2 pm.
