Yin Ling Fong

(known to her beloved friends as Fong Yee Yee)


Yin Ling grew up in Hong Kong where she met her husband Man Che at H.K.B. University. The couple shared 40 happy and intimate years together. They came to Kitimat in 1976 and Yin Ling worked at Atom Motors then Daval Automotive for a total of 25 years. She loved travelling the world and tending her beautiful garden. Fong Yee Yee was known for her friendly and inquisitive nature, positive outlook, elegant homegrown bouquets, and perfect desserts. She fully cherished all her relations, lived life to the fullest, and loved to laugh.

She maintained her sense of humour and lovely demeanor until the end of her days, passing away peacefully and with “no regrets!” after a courageous struggle with cancer. Yin Ling is survived by Man Che, her older brothers Kung Ping (Lei Shang), Kwok Hong (Susana), and Kwok Kee (Fung Yee), as well as her nieces and nephews.

Fong Yee Yee and Man Che are indebted to their longtime Kitimat friends and “kids” for their endless support. To the Chiu, Lee, Poon, Lo and Lam families – words cannot express our deep appreciation.

Thank you also to the home care nurses Gloria, Elaine, and Lenaya; the home support staff; the hospital staff; Dr. Huang, Dr. Kay, and Dr. Van Schalkwyk; and Debbie Hopkins from oncology. We were so fortunate to receive your compassionate care and love.

A private celebration of life was held on August 28th, 2013 in Fong Yee Yee’s home.
