Toronto has lost one of its most energetic and dedicated community builders with the death of Valerie Mah. A long-time west-end resident, Mah died suddenly Sunday — her 83rd birthday. Principal Mah, as she was affectionately known, lived her life for the betterment of others. A long-time educator, she was the Toronto District School Board’s first female Asian vice-principal and taught at Withrow Avenue Junior Public School and Bruce Public School until her retirement about 20 years ago.
