October 16, 1959 – February 13, 2021
On Saturday, February 13th, 2021, Lana Quon, loving mother of two daughters, passed away at 61 years young.
Lana Quon was born on October 16th, 1959 in Myrnam, Alberta to Tim and Susan Quon. As a middle sibling, she had an older brother, Harry, and a younger brother, Ed. The family moved to Vancouver when Lana had turned the age of 4, where she lived the rest of her childhood and grew up with a number of elementary and high school friends. On August 18th, 1984, she married Danny Wong (now ex-husband). They raised two daughters, Jena and Krista.
Lana had an extraordinary gift for baking and cooking. She realized her passion at the age of 11 and spent the rest of her life expressing her love for others through food and desserts. Lana would often spend hours baking to surprise and delight her close friends and loved ones with delicious desserts, her way of saying “I love and care about you.” She will always be known for her generosity, going above and beyond for others, never expecting anything in return. She will always be remembered for her warm, beautiful smile and undeniable compassion for others.
Lana was preceded in death by her mother Susan, and her father, Tim. She is survived by her two daughters, two brothers, nieces and nephews. She also leaves behind a number of extended family and friends who will miss her dearly.
A viewing will be held on Wednesday, February 24th at 4pm. A funeral service will be held on Thursday, February 25th at 10am and burial to follow at 12pm at Ocean View Burial Park.
Jena and Krista would like to express their gratitude and appreciation to everyone who has reached out in sympathy and support for the family during this difficult time.
“We cried endlessly when you died but we promise, we won’t let the tears mar the smiles that you’ve given us when you were alive.” We love you.

I have known Lana since high school. She was a beautiful and vivacious spirit that was taken from us too soon. She is now in God's loving embrace. My deepest condolences to Lana's family.

Dear Harry and Ed:
I am so sorry for the loss of your sister. I just saw her a few months
ago passing by my place and hesitated to say hi as I wasn't sure
she would remember me. But I quickly thought not to let the moment pass by .. so I hurried out to the front balcony and yelled
out " Hi Lana" she turned and smiled.
In hindsight now, never miss the opportunity to tell and show
your family and friends how much they mean to you. I didn't know
that would be the last friendly "Hello" I would say to her.
Knowing you both as my brother's and sister 's friends since I was
a kid til now, Lana was very lucky to have you two as brothers.
May she rest in peace knowing her two daughters will have the
love and support of her uncles and the rest of the family.
My deepest sympathy to you both,
Love , Bee

Lana was a dear friend for much of my life. I have so many childhood memories: listening to Beatles records; eating the most delicious steamed pork buns I ever had; talking and giggling on the phone together for hours. In later years, life took us to different places... Calgary and Hong Kong for Lana; Regina and Singapore for me, but when we were in Vancouver we would meet for long walks or feasts at buffet restaurants. As always, we talked and talked, sometimes (if I was lucky), over a plate of her delicious baking. She was so proud of Jena and Krista; the loves of her life and I’m heartbroken that she was taken from them and all her dear friends and family so soon.

Ode to Lana
A gentle soul and kindred spirit.
We experienced travel adventures, food, laughter and joy together.
Your light is now gone,
But you will live on in the hearts of your daughters and those lucky enough to call you friend.
Good bye Lana, you will be missed.
