Audrey Tcheng Ho Un Ming, born 1919 in Hong Kong, passed away peacefully in St. Paul's Palliative Care Ward in Vancouver at the age of 94. Audrey was a graduate of the Diocesan Girls' School of Hong Kong and attended Hong Kong University and Riverside Community College in California. Throughout her life she exemplified love and generosity. Her bright spirit touched many in her lifetime. She made lasting friendships with ease wherever she resided, and was an active volunteer, including performing Hawaiian dances, at seniors' centers. She loved dancing, food, travel, flowers, art and beauty in all its forms. Audrey's passion for dance motivated her to achieve the Gold Medal in Standard Ballroom Dancing at the age of 88. Above all, Audrey was devoted to her family. She will be sorely missed by her surviving children, grandchildren, and great- grandchildren. There will be a Celebration of Audrey's Life at the Richmond Funeral Home on Monday, December 2nd, 2013. Visitation will commence at 9:00 a.m. The Service will begin at 11:00 a.m. and will be followed by a reception. All who knew her are invited to attend.
