In Loving Memory of Bernadette Yuk Kwai Wan

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Bernadette Yuk Kwai Wan, a cherished wife, mother, and grandmother. Her peaceful departure from this world follows a courageous battle with cancer, finding eternal serenity in the embrace of our Heavenly Father.

Bernadette's life was defined by her unwavering dedication to her family and her enduring love for her home. She was a beacon of strength, grace, and kindness, leaving an undeniable mark in the hearts of all who had the privilege of knowing her. Her legacy will forever be in the memory of those she leaves behind.

Bernadette faced her battle with cancer with extraordinary courage, demonstrating a resilience that inspired all fortunate enough to witness it. Her unwavering optimism and determination in the face of adversity were a testament to her incredible spirit.

She is survived by her loving family, her husband of 60 years, Stephen, and her children: Grace (Daniel), Tony (Lancy), Michael (Rosemary). Her memory will be cherished by her grandchildren, Amanda, Calvin, Megan, Kaitlyn, and Lauren. They will forever treasure the precious moments shared with her. Bernadette's loving, kind-hearted, and thoughtful attitude will be deeply missed but never forgotten.

Bernadette's memory will live on in the hearts of those who knew and loved her. Her legacy of love, strength, and resilience will continue to inspire us all.

May she find eternal rest and peace.

We are saddened to hear your loss. 尹太 was a gracious and wonderful person who made the world a better place. We have fond memories of her, my favourite one is the kindness she showed us how to bake a banana sponge cake. We will miss her. May she rest in peace ..,

Bernadette and Catherine were childhood school mates with an enduring and cherished friendship that had lasted a life time. I will always remember auntie Wan's gracious hospitality, her dedication to her family, her elegance and her role model of motherhood. I felt blessed to have had the chance to know her and always very thankful for her kindness. She will be very much missed.
