It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Rosalind Lau Shu Yeung. She was our much beloved sister and aunt, and the daughter of the late James Cheung Fat Yeung (father) and the late Rose Marie Siu Ping Chu Yeung (mother). One of six children, Rosalind was born and raised in Hong Kong where her father owned and operated a successful printing company. She was a graduate of the prestigious secondary school, Diocesan Girls' School of Hong Kong. She later attended Northcote Teachers' Training College where she received certification in teaching, and began her lifelong dedication to the education and teaching profession.
Rosalind immigrated to Canada to continue her education. She received a bachelor’s degree in Library Science at the University of British Columbia, later continuing post-graduate work in Education at the University of San Francisco. Eventually settling in Marin County, she resided in San Rafael for over 40 years and successfully conducted a long and distinguished career as a Cantonese bilingual elementary and middle school teacher in both San Francisco and Oakland Unified School Districts. She was a scholar, an avid reader of both English and Chinese literature, a world traveler, a savvy businesswoman, and a passionate defender of wildlife. She is survived by her older sisters, Marcella Young and Lucy Hom, her younger brothers, Bill Yeung and Alex Yeung, and their respective families. She will always be remembered for the kind, compassionate, and adventurous woman that she was.
