Rebecca L Yeung

April 15, 1961June 4, 2021

Rebecca Yeung, beloved wife, sister, aunt, and friend, passed away on June 4, 2021. She had a wonderful laugh and a kind and generous spirit that touched all who knew her. Her greatest passions were her family, travel, and good food. Sometimes she was able to combine all three while going on adventures across five continents with her loving husband Michael by her side. Rebecca graduated from Boston College and worked as a civil servant at the Massachusetts Department of Transportation for many years.

In addition to her husband Michael Yeung, she is survived by her brother Check Cho Lau, her sister So Sim Moy, and several siblings-in-law, cousins, nieces, and nephews.

Following Buddhist traditions, there will be a ritual burning of offerings at Newton Cemetery on Friday, June 11 at 1:15pm. Family and friends are invited for a brief outdoor visitation at that time and should gather near the cremation area by the Memorial Chapel.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Rebecca’s name to the (American Cancer Society) or (Go2 Foundation

I only knew Rebecca in a professional capacity, working "across the river" to make sure that everything went smoothly for all parties. Generally, I would only hear from her if something wasn't quite right, and then we would figure out the necessary solutions. She was a problem solver who didn't dwell in the negatives.
It was a joy to have had her in my life.

Rebecca lived a full life, getting heaps of tender loving care from her beloved husband Michael and all those who know her. She too, gave so much love and care and laughter to all those who know her. Annette and I are blessed to have Rebecca as our sister in law.
