YUEN (née Wert), Anne
March 30, 1949 – January 13, 2015
Anne passed away peacefully on January 13, 2015 surrounded by her loving family. She fought a courageous battle against lymphoma, strong until the end. Anne is survived by Sze-Yin and their four children, Mark, David (Ryan), Catherine, and Jillian, her mother Aleen, sister Karen (John) and extended family. Anne will be joining her sister Joyce and her father Walter “Wally”. She was a strong and loving mother and will be dearly missed. Born in Montreal, Anne grew up in Chalk River, ON. Anne attended nursing training at Victoria Hospital in London, ON where she worked for several years after graduating. She later moved to Vancouver, BC and began working at Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster, where she met Sze-Yin. They married in 1980 and moved to Surrey to start a family, raising 4 children. Anne began working at the Peace Arch Community Medical Clinic to be closer to the children while they attended school, and as they grew up she changed jobs again to work at the BC NurseLine. Anne made South Surrey her home for nearly 30 years. She loved to cross stitch and through her stitching made many friends. Thank you to those who gave support and love during Anne’s fight against cancer. Special thanks to the staff at the BC Cancer Agency, Peace Arch Emergency and 6N, and Peace Arch Hospice for their excellent care and support. A private family viewing and cremation will be held with a celebration of life at a later date. In lieu of flowers, a donation of blood, the gift of life and hope, would be greatly appreciated. Alternatively, monetary gifts may be made to the BC Cancer Foundation or to the White Rock/South Surrey Hospice Society.
