Teresa Hsu the saint

Singapore had lost one extraordinary person Teresa Hsu. I call he the saint. She passed away on 7 December 2011 at age 113.. I am the fan of Teresa Hsu. From her selflessness, we ready can learn something valuable. Out of all the famous people in Singapore, Teresa Hsu can ready inspire people because of her kindness, helpfulness. She was the extremely low profile person, She was not interested on fame. She shown us how to be the normal person. Her nickname is 'Mother Teresa'. Teresa Hsu was the outstanding social worker in Singapore or International.
This supercentenarian was Singapore's oldest person who had the passion to serve those needy, old and sick people.
Teresa Hsu died peacefully at her home on 7 December. She was cremated on the same day. She knew that her final days would come any moment and prepared to leave this world in peaceful manner. Teresa Hsu left instructions not to make any announcement of her death in the news media, or perform any ceremonies that would cause disturbance and inconvenience to others. Teresa was so caring even she was about to leave the world. Unlike other famous people, she had the truly sincere heart helping others. Through her whole life esposode
The notice was signed by her co-worker Sharana Rao."She has further instructed that no claim be made of her ash by whosoever," it added.

Teresa Hsu, a trained nurse, devoted her entire life to helping the less fortunate.

Born in a tiny village in the Guangdong province of China, Hsu traveled to various countries, such as Hong Kong and Paraguay, to help others, before settling down in Singapore.

Here, she served first as an unsalaried matron at Kwong Wai Shiu Hospital for about three years before opening an old folks home, called the "Home for the Aged Sick".

After retirement, she turned her attention to her welfare service, Heart to Heart, where she reached out to needy elderly folks and families.
These few days, local media and newspapers all published the news. Teresa Hsu will be always remembered by all Singaporeans and oversea people.
