Ms Nancy Gan - artist, socialite and philanthropist - was cremated on Sunday evening at Mandai Crematorium and Columbarium, after a two-day wake in Mount Vernon Sanctuary.

She was found dead in the swimming pool of her Bukit Timah bungalow last Wednesday. She was 69 years old.

Her maid of just nine days, 23-year-old Dewi Suko Wati, has been charged with her murder and has been remanded for psychiatric assessment.

None of Ms Gan's family members had met the new maid who, if convicted, could be sentenced to death.
