Mercedes Lew, 80, died on Tuesday, February 20th at Cornell Medical Center in NYC, due to complications from a fall which fractured her hip. She was born in the Philippines, emigrated to Guam and then to New York City. The oldest of 9 in her family, she spoke English, Cantonese, Mandarin & Tagalog. She is survived by her 3 loving children (James, Jeffrey & Minna) and 8 grandchildren. Following the passing of her husband, Wai Foon Lew, 2 years earlier at age 86, Mercedes remained active and was able to live on her own. She worked hard to support her family and was employed at Diners Club, Bulova Watch Company and Foxwoods Casino. In her later years, she enjoyed eating at restaurants, attending church, playing mahjong and making new friends. We will miss her dearly and hope she finds peace in heaven. May God bless her soul and look after her.
