Live stream of the memorial service for Janet Cheung Wong:

Janet Cheung, 53, of Houston Texas passed away peacefully on August 23, 2017 at the Houston Methodist Hospital, Medical Center. Born on August 25, 1964, she spent half of her life in Hong Kong before moving to the United States in 1991.

She graduated from the Asia International Open University, Hong Kong in 1994 with a Bachelor of Business Administration degree, and in 1997 she earned a Master of Business Administration degree from the University of St. Thomas, Houston. She also received certification from the Arizona State University in supply chain management and a few other short programs from accredited universities. Janet spent most of her career with Amoco and later with BP in various leadership roles covering upstream, midstream, downstream, global fuels technology, wells procurement and supply chain management and most recently global subsea BOP reliability before she retired in mid-2016. She was an active member of the Houston First Baptist Church.

Janet was a devoted Christian, intelligent, confident, loving, thoughtful and always putting others before herself. Her natural outgoing personality allowed her to gain valuable life experience even as a young girl, while her inquisitive attitude fueled her passion to explore the world. She enjoyed reading, traveling, cooking and sampling all kinds of cuisine. Sadly, her tremendous enthusiasm to serve God in retirement came to a halt by a rare blood disease.

She is survived by her loving and devoted husband, Samco Wong; elder sister, Christina Cheung; brother-in-law, Po Ming Lau; brother-in-law, Bob Clifford; nephew, Oliver Clifford-Marsh, wife Pia Clifford-Marsh and their lovely daughter Fox Mei Clifford-Marsh; nephew, William Clifford, wife Romina Bertossi and their lovely daughters Sofia Mei Clifford and Emma Lin Clifford.
