The woman, Leung Hau, was found in the family's flat by her 87-year old son, who untied his mother before raising the alarm, the South China Morning Post said.
Ambulance personnel confirmed Leung was dead at the flat in the working class Yau Ma Tei district of Kowloon.
She had told her son and his wife that she wanted to die because she did not want to be a burden, but they had not taken her seriously.
Iman Fok from the Society for Community Organisations said Leung's suicide was "bizarre" and she may have had other problems that she had not told her family.
