Memories of Mrs. Yip in Fernie

I just want to say how many old memories came back to me reading Mary Giuliano’s story about the Yip family.

Memories of Mrs. Yip

 

I just want to say how many old memories came back to me reading Mary Giuliano’s story about the Yip family.

I also grew up in Fernie and my goodness the Diamond Grill was part of our teenage lives as well.

When the Yip family first came to Fernie I was very young. They lived in the Annex, very close to me.

It was interesting to find out when Ken was born because I asked my mom if Mrs. Yip had to go to China to get Kenny.

Can you imagine a kid of nine asking that question today?

I have a lot of very fond memories of the family and I always knew I would recognize a face when I went back to visit relatives in Fernie and that would be Mrs. Yip and she never forgot me after all the years I’d been away.

My family came to Fernie before the Fernie fire in 1908 so we go back a long long way.

I enjoy reading Mary’s conversations, keep up the good work.
