Yai-Chi Tong
Service: Private

Yai-Chi Tong, passed away peacefully in her sleep on October 5th at the age of 99. She was born on June 5, 1918 in the Jiangsu province of China. She moved to Taiwan in 1949, living in Hualien and Taipei before moving to the U.S in 1956, living first in Pennsylvania before permanently settling in Maryland. She was preceded in death (1998) by her husband, Long Sun Tong, with whom she was married for over 60 years. 

She leaves behind her beloved nephews, niece, granddaughters, and others of the generation beyond.  The life she lived set an example through her gentle nature, kindness of her heart, and inspiration to all she met to stay open-minded, positive, and cheerful at all times.  She kept a young heart and always brought joy to people around her.  She found happiness from hearing that the people she cared about were happy. By her request, there were no public services. Her remains are buried at the Gate of Heaven cemetery in Silver Spring, MD next to her husband.
