Yim Hung CHIU
Lovingly memorialized by The Chan Family on October 9, 2020
她還喜歡早上行山。及後, 在會所健身室鍛煉身體，閱讀雜誌和報紙。母親最開心的時光，就是一家人和孩子，孫兒, 曾孫們聚首，知道他們學業，工作有所進展。許多人都欽佩母親儘管經歷了重重逆境，仍能夠將眾多孩子撫養，成為有責任心並對社會有所貢獻的人。
-- 曾孫女Molly, Keilly
Mother, CHIU Yim Hung (趙艶红), age 93, passed away peacefully on September 24, 2020 at Yan Chai Hospital, Hong Kong. She was born in Hong Kong on June 17, 1927. Her father CHIU Sin (趙善) died young. She was then brought up with her elder brother CHIU Yu Chiang (趙汝長) by grandmother SO Yu Yuen (蘇雨願). Mother married young to father, CHAN Pak Yan (陳伯忍) and raised a family with six sons and two daughters.
During her lifetime, mother was brave and smart. She took up responsibility after father’s early death at age 47 on February 18, 1970 and successfully brought up eight children with the help from grandmother.
Mother was strong and had guided the family through adversities, tackled challenges throughout her lifetime. To support our family during the adverse economic period, mother brought factory materials home for processing so that she could provide the best care for her children whilst working. Mother did not have the chance for formal education because of poverty, so she treasured the importance of education very much and guided her children to study hard and emphasized the importance of integrity and self-reliance.
Mother always kept herself up to date on current affairs through reading newspaper and magazines. When she was in her fifties, she applied her self-learned knowledge on investment and started to make better income through property investment and in foreign exchange market. At the age of 74, mother received a Gold Prize Certificate in IT Awareness from a program organized by the Information Technology Services Department.
Mother enjoyed morning mountain walks and at her older age doing exercises in the club house’s gymnasium. But her greatest joys were when attending gatherings with her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren and knowing their accomplishments. She was admired by many to be able to raise her many children into responsible adults, contributing to society despite all the adversities.
Mother is dearly loved and will be greatly missed. She is survived by her children and grandchildren and their spouses as well as great grandchildren whom she loved and touched deeply:

Cause of death was determined to be Congestive Heart Failure, which had caused her extended illness.
Linda, known as Lyndee to many of her friends, left behind her beloved Dachshund dog, Bailey, 8 siblings, as well as many friends both within and outside the LGBTQ+ community.
Linda worked the last 16+ years as a caregiver with Beneficial Health Services. She shared herself and her compassion with all the elders she cared for and served. Although she was unable to work since June 2019 due to her health issues, she will long be remembered at Beneficial.
Linda was a community minded person who actively sought to help those less fortunate than herself, or anyone in need. For many years she was a volunteer, helping with holiday food boxes, and yearlong fundraising with the Imperial Sovereign Court of Spokane. Throughout her time as a volunteer, Linda was recognized with many awards, plaques and gifts in appreciation for her hard work.
It is with great sadness, we set Linda to rest.
Due to the length of her illness, there are few resources or assets to accommodate the needs that accompany her death. Although her family has many riches of intrinsic value, the financial means to take care of Linda's final expenses are very limited, if at all available.
We have need to request that any friends or family with the ability, as guided by your heart, to express their love of Linda by donating to her final expenses.
Donations can be made directly toward her cremation costs with Spokane Cremation & Funeral Service by calling 509-324-9375 and referencing Linda K. Harvey. You may also donate to the family for the other expenses that accompany her transition, ie death certificates, obituaries, etc. through Paypal, paypal.me/sasswilly. All donations will go initially towards her cremation costs then to remaining expenses involved in finalizing Linda's life here with us.
May she rest in peace. She will be missed.
