In Celebration of

Alice Yeh

October 10, 1919 -  January 12, 2018

Alice Yeh (nee Gee Yook Lin) was born in Victoria, BC on October 10, 1919. She went to be with her Lord on January 12, 2018.
She was the devoted wife of the late Tin Yeh. She will be dearly missed by her son, Peter Yeh and his wife, Cindy, her grandson, Trevor and granddaughter, Nikki Yeh and her husband Jonathan Cheung. She has two great-grandchildren, Davina and Rayden.
Alice had a strong and steadfast faith in God. She was a member of the Toronto Chinese Presbyterian Church. Over the years, she was an active member of the church: teaching Sunday School, taking an active role in the ministries to women and was ordained as an elder. She loved her cottage near Bracebridge in Muskoka and one of her joys was to host young people at church, many friends and relatives during holidays there. She was also one of the founders of Cornerstone Montessori Prep School, a Christian private school that originated at the church.
She held the distinction of being one of the first Chinese women to work in a bank in Ontario at the Bank of Nova Scotia. She later became the Secretary for Chinese ambassador in Tokyo. She obtained her Masters in Social Work and was also a social worker for the Children’s Catholic Aid Society until her retirement.
Memorial donations may be made to the Toronto Chinese Presbyterian Church.
“Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.” Psalm 23:6

Alice was a very special part of our family. Her beautiful smile and sharing of stories gave us great pleasure as we travelled back and forth from CPC weekly for so many years. After changing residences it was over Sunday lunch. She will be so sorely missed but always be in our hearts.

We are deeply saddened to hear of Alice’s passing. Auntie Alice was an extraordinary woman. Our late Father and Mother, Pei and Martha Yeh, frequently spoke of Alice’s devotion to the Church, and how she has always shown love and compassion to our family. May she rest in peace.

My deepest condolences. She will be greatly missed. I always respected her incredible spirituality. My most distinct memory of Aunt Alice was sitting in her car one day and she told me to look up at the trees. She told me that we should strive to be like the trees because they stand and stare at god all day. She gave me one of my favourite childhood books - Jonah and the Whale.
