Anne Wai Kuen Quon
1933 – 2015
Anne Wai Kuen Quon of Lethbridge, beloved wife of Victor Fee Quon, passed away peacefully at Chinook Regional Hospital on Thursday December 24th, 2015 at the age of 82 years.
Anne was born in 1933 and went to school in Canton China. In 1950, she met Victor Quon, the love of her life, through one of his cousins. It was love at first sight and they were married soon after within a couple of months of meeting. Several years later, they started a family together. Victor had went ahead to Canada to find work. She, with her first born son John, fled to Hong Kong in 1955 when the Communist government took all their land and they then immigrated to Canada a few years later.
Anne worked in the food service industry after she came to Canada. She started out as a kitchen helper in the restaurant/coffee shop at the York Hotel. She was later hired as a cook at the House of Wong restaurant and worked there until she retired in 1983.
Upon their retirement, Anne and Victor travelled back to China several times. She had the good fortune of reconnecting with her relatives and extended family on one of these trips to China. In her spare time, she enjoyed sewing, gardening and also loved cooking and creating new dishes. She was also an active member of the Lethbridge Chinese Cultural Club until her passing.
Besides her loving husband Victor Fee Quon, Anne Wai Kuen Quon is survived by her 3 sons John (late Jean), David (late Yvonne, Gina), and Tony (Cindy), grandchildren Nicholas, Alexander and 2 others, four sisters living in China, and six brothers, Jim Wong (Sandy), Bill Wong (Sharon) living in Canada as well as three other brothers still living in China.
