LACATE, Adelene Yu Kheng

January 9, 2014

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Adelene (Addy) Lacate (nee Lee) on Thursday, January 9 after a prolonged battle with illness. Addy was born on July 4, 1966 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. At the age of thirteen, she immigrated to Canada with her family, where she attended Burnaby Central High School. Addy’s varied career included stints in the food and hospitality industry at the Boathouse, in the business and investment community with Barretto Pacific Corp and Chai-Na-Ta Corp, and in the medical community with the Fraser Health Authority. Addy had lived in the South Surrey/ White Rock community since moving there as a newlywed in 1997, and she was so proud to call the area home. She was deeply involved in many of her children’s activities and relished being a “hockey mom”. Addy’s greatest achievement in life was her ability to make others feel loved. Addy was a devoted and loving mother and a cherished wife. Addy is predeceased by her parents, Lawrence and Mona Lee. Addy is survived by her husband Russ, sons Jacob and Spencer and mother-in-law Marilyn. She will be greatly missed by all of the wonderful cousins and aunts and uncles of the Lee family, and by her dear girlfriends who were by her side until the end. Special thanks to the doctors and nurses and care workers at the BC Cancer Clinic at Surrey Memorial Hospital and to the wonderful and caring medical staff at Peace Arch Hospice. A Visitation will be held Saturday, January 18, 2014 from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm at Victory Memorial Park Funeral Centre, 14831 28th Avenue, Surrey, BC, followed by a Celebration of Life Service at 1:00 pm.
