Joyce Cheung’s bright smile and warm heart brought comfort to everyone she met.
The co-owner of Danny’s Wun Tun Restaurant in Ironwood Plaza, Cheung, who turned 68 years old last Dec. 16, passed away unexpectedly last week leaving an irreplaceable void in the lives of a loving family and an admiring and appreciative community.
“I started going there in high school (when the restaurant was located at Times Square),” said longtime customer Tony Wonghen. “That’s when I got to know (Joyce and Danny). They were the nicest, most welcoming people. When you showed up it felt like you were going into a relative’s home for lunch or dinner. It was a great atmosphere.”
Wonghen said the cuisine was “excellent,” and Joyce often offered an opinion on a particular dish.
Known as a strong woman with a brilliant sense of humour, Cheung’s Buddhist faith permeated her life.
All who knew her are welcome to attend a service at the Richmond Funeral Home on Friday, Feb. 1 from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. Condolences may be left for the family at www.arbormemorial.ca/en/richmond/obituaries
If desired, donations may also be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of BC at heartandstroke.ca in her memory.
