Obituary

On March 20, 2015, Fay York Mah passed away peacefully at the age of 80 years. Fay was born in Toi San, China and immigrated to Edmonton, Canada in 1952. He arrived in Canada not knowing a word of English. Through hard work, eventually he and his brother, Poy, started their own business. They were the owners of Woodland Grocery starting in 1956. Fay returned to China to marry Kit Fong in 1959 and brought his new wife to Canada. Over the next 13 years, they were blessed with 5 children: Gene (Edith), Wayne (Anne), Ken (Jody), Pauline (Clayton), and Quinn (Angela). Often, he could be found behind the cash register watching the Edmonton Eskimos games and listening to Brian Hall call the play by play on the radio. Fay enjoyed watching old Western movies. He retired after selling the grocery store in 2005 at the age of 70 and spent the last decade enjoying his 9 grandchildren: Courtney (Kirk), Taylor (Natalia), Staci, Kelsey, Katelyn, Rhaya, Annelisa, Danica, and Marek and great-grandson (Lucas).

The family wishes to express their sincere gratitude to his physician, Dr. Matthew Wong; Dr. Caldwell and his incredible staff at the Renal Care Unit at the University of Alberta Hospital; and the doctors and nurses at the Royal Alexandra Hospital for their special care of our Father.

We are forever grateful to Mom for her unwavering and incredible devotion in the care of Dad.
