Welcome to the Tribute page for my lovely Grandmother, Mary Yick Ching Fong.

She was a beloved Grandmother, Mother, Godmother, Aunt and friend. She spent her life putting smiles on peoples’ faces and touched the lives and hearts of so many with her beautiful spirit and loving nature.

She lived a long and fulfilling life and I am honoured to have known an Angel and a wonderful person in my Grandma.

She was called to Heaven to be with God on a peaceful Sunday, the 16th August 2009 but we will always carry the special moments we shared with Mama in our hearts and we know she will always watch over us, just like she did when she was alive.

We miss you Mama and we love you always.

On the tribute page, you can

Read Mama’s Eulogy in the “HER LIFE” section

See her pictures in the “Gallery” section

Share/view/post memories of her in the “Memories” section.


If Mary has touched your lives in any way, please light a candle for her just like this one by my Uncle Matthew.
