Yuk Yin Yip passed away peacefully at Hennick Bridgepoint Hospital on Tuesday March 8, 2022, at the age of 87, with family by her side.
She is reunited with her dearly departed husband 廣信 Kwong Shun and loving son 劍宏 Frank.
Yuk Yin is survived by her loving children 麗玲 Linda (Frank), 劍權 Brian (Pat), 妙玲 Lily and daughter-in-law Ida.
Yuk Yin was a doting Grandmother, affectionately known as “Poh Poh” to her 9 grandchildren Jeffrey (Natalie), Colleen, Jocelyn, Catherine, David, Alan, Michael, Philip and Robert. All of the grandchildren will deeply cherish their memories and time spent with her from infancy through adulthood. Her great-grandchildren Colin, Charlotte and Cassidy also loved their “Bak Bak” and will miss drawing pictures for her.
She will be dearly missed by her younger siblings Kwun Chuen (Ling), Yuk Ngan, Ka Hoo (Isebella), Chun Lam (Teresa) and by her many nieces and nephews.
Throughout her entire life, family remained the top priority to Yuk Yin and she was fiercely devoted to all. She took great pride in supporting and seeing her children complete higher education, with grandchildren following suit. She relished in hearing of their accomplishments, successes and endeavour's, with no update being too small to light up her eyes. She always wanted everyone to have what they loved, especially food, and never failed to ensure ample amounts were available at every opportunity.
Yuk Yin was a welcoming spirit, socializing with friends and neighbours, her favourite shop merchants in Chinatown and continued to maintain ties with schoolmates from China. She proudly maintained a tidy home and garden, and was the longest standing resident on her street. Her neighbours referred to her respectfully as “Mrs. Yip” (or casually as Judy) when they saw her out sweeping the front walk, and she enjoyed sharing her favourite treats with them during their annual street parties.
She will be remembered by family and friends for her dedication to wishing all those around her only the best in health, wealth and happiness.
The family would like to thank all the doctors and nurses that were part of Yuk Yin’s care team.
