Yee Mah 2022, death notice, Obituaries, Obituaries
It is with great sadness that we have lost a much loved member of our family. Yee Foo Mah, 91, died peacefully surrounded by her loved ones on July 22, 2022. Yee was born in Hong Kong, the third daughter of a family of 11 children.
She is predeceased by both her parents, her two older sisters and her two younger brothers, Wilfred and Luke.
She is survived by her husband, Ken; daughter, Marianne (Raymond); sons, Ernie (Allyson) and Edwin (Petty); and grandchildren, Sophie and Amélie.
Yee spent her childhood near the beach in Hong Kong. It was there, in high school, that she met Ken. Their courtship was interrupted by the war and Ken immigrated to Canada to join his family. But Ken insisted on marrying this beautiful girl and pursued her until finally she consented and traveled halfway around the world alone to marry him. This was the first Chinese wedding in Edmonton performed at the Chinese United Church and the entire Chinese community attended. At first, Yee worked at the family grocery store, but later Ken asked her if she liked flowers. “Well, sure, what girl doesn’t?”. Expecting a pretty bouquet, he instead enrolled her in floral design at Olds College and she went on to manage their flower shop. Besides being a successful businesswoman, Yee had various hobbies including her garden and orchids. She loved to sew and cook wonderful meals for the family. Her two grandchildren claim she is the best cook at home, always treating them with her exploration of Asian cuisine. Ken says that Yee loved studying geography, which means she loved to travel and together they traveled the world. She was a sweet soul, a loving wife, sister, mother and grandmother. She will be greatly missed.
We would like to thank the staff at MacTaggart Retirement Resident Place for taking such good care of her during her final days.
Service will be at Connelly- McKinley, 10011-114 Street NW
Our most sincere sympathies to the family and friends of Yee Mah 2022..
