At 5.00 a.m. today the 19th October our member Gary Wong
received word that our dearest member Yonne Ong had
passed away peacefully.
Yonne suffered a stroke on the 10th August -a result of a brain massive haemorrhage and has been in a coma since Yonne was only 52 years old.
Initially there was a glimmer of hope as she responded to treatment and opened her eyes on the afternoon she was admitted.
However her condition remained critical and despite the fact that she was moved out of ICU her condition started to deteriorate while in the high dependency care unit at Sunway Medical Centre.
Today her life left her and now is in a better place. The online fund raiser #Yonneneedshelp launched by Kiwanis Klang raised close to RM 100,000 as hundreds of Kiwanians, her friends and the general public rallied to the families aid.
Her family thanks each and everyone of you for your love and generosity
She will be sorely missed not only for all she has done for hundreds of children in her time but also because she was an angel sent to be with us. Always smiling, very optimistic, brilliantly organized, and with a big heart she loved Kiwanis and gave her all to the projects we undertook, joined in the fellowship and never had a harsh word for anyone,
Since joining the club in July 2009 she has served as our Club President, Treasurer, Youth Camp Facilitator, KDSF Chairman (Klang Centre), KDSF Foundation Treasurer and KDSF Council Member. And she made great Chocolates!
So farewell Yonne, may God bless you and keep you in his arms.
We will miss you very, very much.
