JANG – Ann Yue Yook August 5, 1933 – November 10, 2012

Ann passed away peacefully on Saturday, November 10th, 2012 surrounded by loving family members. Ann was born in Toishan, Kwangtung, China and immigrated to Canada in 1955. She met and married Kenneth Jang in 1959 and became a devoted wife and mother. She was a compassionate, selfless, well respected elegant woman with a deep love for her family. Her encouragement and sacrifice made each of us who we are today. Her love extended to her seven grandchildren, and many nieces, nephews and other family members. Ann enjoyed gardening and cooking, and was happiest when family came over for dinner and special occasions. We will miss her dearly. Ann is survived by her husband of 53 years, Ken; four children Mary (Dick) Quon, Lillian, Edward (Theresa) and Henry; grandchildren Jeffrey, Phillip, and Andrea Quon, Mackenzie and Elizabeth Allen, Bryan and Allison Jang; sister Mee (Tom) Mah; brothers Colin (Stella) Gee and Wing (Judy) Gee.

To Mary, Lillian, Ed and Henry I offer my deepest condolences for the loss of your beloved mother. She was a very special person, as anyone who knew her can attest. Many of my fondest memories of growing up include your mother and the time our families spent together in the same neighborhood. She will be missed but she will not be forgotten.

Dear Mary, Lillian, Ed, and Henry. I remember your mom fondly, always kind and generous to everyone around her. I reflect on the time when our family moved away from Altadore and your mom took my brother and sisters in for lunch on school days. Your mom treated us like family. Your mom will always be in my mind and heart. My deepest condolences to you all.
