LEE, Hazel Choon-Khui


Hazel was born and raised in Singapore to father Chin Khee Min and mother Lai Mei Lian, in August 1948. Hazel immigrated to Canada in 1975 where she made a life with her spouse, Justin Chee Kin Lee – they were married for 46 years.  In addition, Hazel is survived by children: Juliana, Harold, Isaac, Belynda and Maurice. Hazel was Grandma, Po-Po, and Mah Mah to 13 grandchildren: David, Braeden, Aimee, Samuel, Danica, Malachi, Zyana, Alethea, Benjamin, Sue-Lee, Aiden, Ethan, Sean. To Hazel, her family was her world whom she loved and dedicated quality time towards through family dinners, vacations, and celebrating special occasions.

Known for her warm hospitality, giving heart, and selfless nature, Hazel was a sister to 6 siblings: Sen, Iris, Johnny, Christopher, Sylvia, and Clara, who reside in Singapore, the United States, and Canada. Despite a diagnosis of cancer in 2005, her strong faith upheld and defined who she was in life as she lived life to the full enjoying travels, hosting dinners and gatherings, and cultivating rich relationships. Hazel was a beloved friend of many and had many friend circles, in life and work in Singapore, Edmonton, Calgary, Fort McMurray, Vancouver, and Florida to name a few. Hazel loved being in nature and you could often find her taking any opportunity to capture a photo of a sunset, catch an image of a wild animal in its habitat, or snap a picture of flowers and foliage. But more than anything, Hazel was known for her warm smile and loving heart. She was and is an inspiration.The family has entrusted Serenity Funeral Service with the Viewing Ceremony scheduled for Thursday, March 11, 2021.

Hazel enjoyed keeping updates with friends by emails. Through her emails we always found out she had gone through water and fire. She still praised the Lord, she always like to insert “Sing to Him; sing praise to Him; tell of all His wonderful acts. Glory in His holy name, let the hearts of those who seek the LORD rejoice.” Psalm 105:2-3. The most beautiful heart and smiling Hazel will be in my memory forever. It is hard to say good-bye. She will be missed by us and many other people. My dear sister-in-Christ is now resting in the Lord, I can’t wait till the day we will meet her in heaven.! Nora, William & family!

Hazel was a faithful, committed and holy sister-in-Christ. She was strong in faith, enthusiastic in life, and always relied on God. Hazel had suffered from cancer for years, but God performed many miracles on her with His mighty hands. She continued to pursue God and praise Him in her hardest times. She treasured friendship. she had organized and hosted pot-luck reunion supper annually for few years. She was an overcomer and victorious in God. She always insert
