Dear Yee Family,

I'm very sorry for your loss. Auntie Fay was a big part of the Wong's life in Idaho.

A few memories stand out:

She took my Grandma (Lilly Wong) shopping all day so that we could decorate for a surprise 70th birthday. Upon their return Grandma turned to Fay and said in her thickly accented English: "You tricked me!". To which Auntie Fay laughed and slapped her leg with glee.

She used to give me fast 5 minute haircuts while telling me that I was too skinny and needed to eat more.

She said my name the same way as my Grandma: "Et-wert" (Edward).

The fish heads. We ate a lot of fish heads.

Love you and miss you Auntie Fay!

An expression of sympathy to the Yee family from Livvy.

Mama Yee always made fried rice for Phil to pick up in exchange for fish.....any kind of fish...she loved to cook fish.
Phil, not wanting to appear presumptuous and show up with a container for the fried rice,said that Fay finally had to scold him...."Next time, don't forget your container!

I admired Fay for all she accomplished....raising a large successful family,
Leaving home at such a young age and coming to America, and having the foresight to buy good land.
Rest in peace, Mama Yee.

So sorry to here of Mama Yee's passing. Just want to share a time when she and Uncle Donald were at Boyd and Daisy's. Fay and Uncle Donald had wanted to fish so I told them to come over and fish in the pond where Herb and I raised Kamaloop trout. They both came and fished catching some very nice trout. Fay told me she would be cooking the fish in her special way and invited me to share in the dinner. I was honored and gladly accepted. The meal was to die for, absolutely delicious. As I sat eating Fay said the best part of the fish are the heads. Me not knowing Chinese customs on eating fish politely refused the fish heads but now I wish I had tried them. I'm generally a try anything once kind of person but I did not on that occasion. I felt very honored that Fay invited me to eat with the family that night. I will never forget that day. Fay will always be Mama Yee to me because that's what my Herbie called her. OMG the stories I've heard through the years tell many great things about Mama Yee. She was loved and will be greatly missed.
