Peacefully in Mississauga on Wednesday September 30, 2020, at the age of 95 years,
Florence Lew King, (wife of predeceased Peter Lee King 1925-2009). Dedicated mother of son Stephen Peter Lee King, (Nancy Yuen King), and predeceased son Martin James Lee King. Devoted grandmother of Jennifer (Michael), Kristen (Steven), and Brittany. Great grandchildren Nathan, Joshua, and Madeline, Evan and Dylan.
Florence will be dearly missed by many. Her love for life and making fond memories with family and friends made her life rich and fulfilling in many ways. Fashion and style wrapped into business was her passion. Born and raised in Vancouver, she travelled to Toronto and saw opportunity to establish a business and open her own store. Married to Peter Lee King for 57 years, they shared their business -- CHINA TEMPLE -- for 38 years. Throughout her life Florence enjoyed many family reunions, and did much international travel with close friends and relatives but always said "there's no place like home". She loved to play bridge and she participated in many tournaments during her retirement years. Was also an avid golfer. She was a founding member of the Mon Sheong Foundation and assisted in several fund raising projects to build their first Home on D'Arcy St. in Toronto.
Special thanks to the Amica City Centre staff for excellent health care, which made her residence years very enjoyable.
In honour of Florence's wishes, there be no formal service at this time.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to the Mon Sheong Foundation 36 DʼArcy St., Toronto, M5T 1J7 or to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
