Lisa Allison Tong

January 19, 1962 - October 27, 2020


Lisa Allison Tong
1962 – 2020
It is with extreme sadness that we announce the passing of Lisa Allison Tong born January 19 1962 – Oct 27 2020 of complications from the chronic disease Lupus.

Lisa was born in Ottawa Ontario and moved with her family to B.C. at the age of 3 years. She grew up In New Westminster attending Herbert Spencer Primary school then New Westminster Secondary.

Her adult working Career was with Canadian Airlines and Air Canada. Lisa took early retirement because of her health issues and moved with her family to Salt Spring Island in 2008 and loved it here, enjoying the small community feel of the Island and it’s friendly people.

Lisa had a diversity of interests. She adored animals and had she been able would have been an holistic Veterinarian! Her animals were like her children, especially her beautiful sheltie, Ceilidh who was always by her side and passed on at the age of 17.

Lisa loved people. She took an interest in them and valued their friendship. Her caring positive outlook on life continued no matter how she felt. Her heart was full of giving and she valued her family, friends and neighbors. She loved to give small gifts as a token of her affection and appreciation.

Lisa was keenly interested in astrology and the ups and downs of the planetary movements. She had a flair for fashion and design and studied interior design and staging at one point in her life. In recent years she became interested in painting and enjoyed visiting Island Art Galleries. She also took part in the Art Guilds summer shows. Her plan was to strive to go farther with this medium.

We as a family have been blessed to have such a sweet helpful caring, kind daughter, sister, auntie and great auntie. The impact she has made on all our lives is immeasurable. The love she has given us an everlasting imprint. Taken from us much too soon. We will cherish every moment and memory and do our best to emulate all the goodness that she has always shown and stood for in life. Forever in our thoughts, close in our hearts and spirits.

Left behind are her loving Mom Sandra Tong, Father Anthony (Tony) Tong, Step dad Phil Cheevers, Sister Laura Nisbet (nee Tong), Brother Michael Andrew Tong, Niece Tara-Lynn Dirks (nee Nisbet) (Eric), Nephew Stuart Nisbet (Laura), Great Niece Harlowe Dirks, Great Nephew Vaughn Dirks.

A Celebration of Life is planned. We shall aim for early May at Lisa’s home where family and friends can feel comfortable and safe in an outdoor setting and distance maintained if this should still be required. Watch for further information.
