Mrs. Lillian Yet Moi Chang

1 February, 192618 April, 2021

Lillian Yet Moi Chang (nee Wong) was born on Feb. 1st, 1926 in Vancouver's Chinatown to Chan See Wong and Wong Wam Fong. As an independent woman of her times, she was always breaking down barriers to achieve her goals. At the age of 22, she opened her first fashion boutique and launched her career as a fashion designer. In 1954, she married Yat Don Chang and began her life as a wife and mother to her 5 children.

Life was never easy for our Mom, but nothing stopped her from providing a loving home for her children. Every day, she inspired us with her determination to get through life's obstacles, not only to get by but to also believe in hope, success and happiness. That is all she wanted for us - to be happy.

Mom will be fondly remembered by her children and their families-Doug (Lori), Donna (Theo), Arnie (Nancy), Jeff (Lisa) and Wendy (Rod). She cherished her 11 grandchildren-Allyson (Brandon), Donny, Samantha (Steve), Tessa (Nick), Cassandra (Jordan), Sarah, Darcy, Timmy (Emely), Theo (Carrie), Kyle and Tristen and rejoiced in every accomplishment that they made. She is survived by her sister, Mabel Lee and many other special family members. We are eternally grateful to Dr. Terry Chang, Kelly, Hazel and all the staff from Evergreen Community Health Centre who supported Mom in her care.

A virtual celebration of life will take place on May 2nd, 2021 at 10:00 AM. Please RSVP to:

I remember your mom sewing and laughing. Those are the two thing I remember the most. She would be sitting on the floor sewing as we came through the door. Before we knew it she would have us all laughing.
Then there was the time she talked me into trying this beautiful dress on that she had sewn, it was really fancy. Of course it was just for fun she said. She just had this way of making you feel like you were really special.
Yes she was a sweetheart and a really cool mom I thought.
I truly hope that maybe I have made someone feel as good about themselves as she did me. For this I will remember you dearly.
Rest in peace knowing that you have done a wonderful job on this earth and left such a wonderful and caring family.
You made a difference and will always be special!

On behalf of the Bill & Thelma Chow Family we would like to offer our condolences.

Your mom was one of a kind, loosing your Dad and raising 5 kids was not easy, but your mom did it with hard work, determination and a good outlook of life,
It’s so hard not to think of your mom, our mom and Aunty Mable without thinking about them smiling and laughing together,
Rest assure she is in heaven with her husband, sister and brothers looking down and saying …. what a great life,
From our family to your family please don’t hesitate to call for any reason, because we are family.
The pain of loosing your mother will slowly fade away, but the memory of what a great mother she was will always stay in your heart.

Be strong,
Tina, Joe, Tana, Winston, Tira, Westley, Tamy & Families
