Marie King Yee
It is with great sadness that the family of Marie Yee announce her peaceful passing on May 25, 2018. Marie was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend who will be best remembered for her strong work ethic, perseverance and self-reliance, her stoicism, excellent cooking skills and belief in proper behavior, as well as observance of traditions. She was modest, avoided drawing attention to herself and had a generous spirit. Above all else, she sacrificed so that her children would know a better life. By any measure, she succeeded.
Her remaining children, Robert, Raymond, Shirley, and Helen; seven grandchildren, Kim, Sunita, Robson, Christina, Monica, Allan Jr. and Michelle; six great-grandchildren; as well as extended family and close friends all mourn her loss, which leaves a great hole in our hearts. Predeceased by her husband, Kai Hong and son, Mitchell.
Memorial Service Saturday, June 9 at 11:00 a.m. at Park Memorial Chapel, 9709 – 111 Avenue, Edmonton, AB. Charitable donations in lieu of flowers may be directed to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Alberta, NWT & Nunavut, Suite 144, 5241 Calgary Trail NW, Edmonton, AB T6H 5G8.
