WING, Edith Belle (nee Lee)

February 22, 1925 – Tillsonburg, Ontario
July 3, 2014 – Calgary, Alberta

Edith Belle Wing (nee Lee), beloved wife of the late Mr. Fred Yee Wing of Calgary, Alberta, passed away peacefully on Thursday, July 3, 2014 at the age of 89 years.

Edith was born in Tillsonburg, Ontario. During her teenage years, she moved to Vancouver, BC. Shortly thereafter she married Fred and moved to Banff, Alberta in 1943 where they became local pioneers and operated the first Chinese Restaurant, The Dominion Café, until 1970.

Edith will be much missed by her children and their spouses, Carole and Rick, Paul and Huguette, Brian and Ingrid, and Donald and Corinne; her seven grandchildren, Simon, Peter, Braden, Jeremy, Benton, Lily, and Nelson; as well her two brothers, two sisters and her many friends and fellow golfers.
