It is with profound sadness that the family of Madeline Shu-Hsien Shih announce her peaceful passing on November 20, 2021 at the age of 89 years.

She will be lovingly remembered by her husband of 62 years, Chang Sheng (Michael),her brothers-in-law, many nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews. She will also be dearly missed by her friends in Ottawa and around the world.

Madeline immigrated to Canada in 1958 from Taiwan to complete her master’s degree in Botany at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg.  Eventually, she and Michael settled in Ottawa in 1966 where she made many friends and had a long career with Agriculture Canada.  Madeline enjoyed spending time gardening, reading, entertaining and, most of all, sharing laughter with her family and friends.  She will be remembered for her kindness, charm and generosity.

Friends and family are invited to attend a visitation at Beechwood Funeral, Cemetery and Cremation Services (280 Beechwood Ave. Ottawa, ON) on Friday, November 26th, 2021 from 1 pm to 3 pm, followed by a graveside service at 3 pm (Beechwood Cemetery, Section 55, 280 Beechwood Ave. Ottawa, ON).

Dear Madeline:
It is difficult to imagine that we are bidding farewell to you so soon. After half a centaury of friendship, you will not be forgotten. You will be missed for your kindness, thoughtfulness, politeness, beautiful Beijing Mandarin and much more...
Our sincere condolences to Michael and the family.

親愛的二嫂,每想到妳,就看見妳燦爛的笑容,開朗的個性,在一起時,妳有很多點子,妳總帶給我們歡樂,妳有老北京人的氣質,異常的客氣,禮數過於周到,每令我們後輩羞愧,我總視您為楷模,希望能有您的萬分之一。您突然離我們而去,二哥失去了愛侶,我們更失去了龍頭;但也為您高興,不再受世間的勞累,能安息主懷,希望不久我們有幸能在天家重逢,等著我。
