德玲 (Linda) 於1954年4月22日在香港出生，自小聰明伶俐，活潑可愛。念小學五年級的時候已經能夠背誦杜甫的詩；小學在天主教嘉諾撒女校，中學就讀聖保祿女校 (St. Paul’s Secondary School) ，隨後去了美國加州的聖母女中學 (Notre Dame High School) ，中學畢業後升讀南加州 (USC)大學主修商科學士畢業，又在Loyola Marymount University 獲頒碩士 (MBA) 學位。
德玲一向性挌堅強，有著女強人的作風，患病一年來受盡手術及治療的痛苦，她也忍受著沒有留下一滴眼淚，倒是見著哥哥弟弟的時候， 忍不住哭了。大家都對失去了這位優秀的姊妹而傷痛，近年來她已眅依我主，在循道衛理聯合教會參與崇拜，願我們對德玲女士的情懷在天父裡得到安慰 !
IN LOVING MEMORY OF LINDA YIN
Linda was born in Hong Kong on April 22, 1954. Clever and talented as she was already as a little girl, she could even recite the poems by Du Fu (a renowned Chinese poet) when she was in primary five. She studied at St Paul’s Secondary School and later was admitted into California’s Notre Dame High School. Then she attended the University of Southern California and received her bachelor degree in business. Later she got her Master degree (MBA)in Loyola Marymount University
Linda loved her siblings and she was especially close to her younger brother, Joseph. She sang with oldest brother Dominic and even introduced her best classmate Grace to accompany her elder brother Paul to a Ball. Those joyful moments are always in our memory.
Upon her return to Hong Kong from her study, she had worked for the TDC (Trade Development Council). Then she left the job and joined the Dah Chung Industrial Company Ltd, the family business. She zealously helped her father and her elder brother Paul to run the business with dedication, diligence and integrity. She and Paul were both partners and comrades.
Amidst her busy schedule in running the family business, she had the heart to serve the community. She had served as a member of the Film Censorship Board of Review and her opinion and view were highly respected.
Linda took good care of her aged father during his illness and paid attention to meticulous details when taking care of her two mothers (Yuen and Hsu)- a very noble daughter.
She was single and she loved her nephews and nieces and cared for them just like her own. She was also very concerned about the well- being of her three sisters-in-law, namely Susie, Sophia and Amelia.
She was just like the family’s caretaker and wherever she was, joy and laughter always rang.
She had variety of interests- from music (especially classical-opera) to sports (badminton and tennis). she had been playing tennis every week until she fell sick and she had made a lot of friends in that circle. Apart from music and sports, travelling had played an important role in her life. Africa was her favorite destination. She was enchanted by the beauty of nature and the wild life: she would take many photos and shared with us her joy.
Always strong and positive as she was fighting the disease that took her life with incredible courage and strength. Of course, it was just natural that sometimes she shed tears before her beloved brothers.
We grieve over our loss yet we are comforted knowing that now she is resting in the loving arms of the Lord Jesus!
My Dear sister, enjoy life and I ❤ you.
Dear Linda, I enjoyed sharing our love of music and all the stories about your passions in traveling. You are forever missed by all of us!
Dear Linda, if there is one regret in my life, that is : I didn’t go to Maldive with you. So long my friend! See you in our Father’s home in the future. ❤️ TaTa
Linda is an amazing woman. She is kind and loving . She is fun to travel with . She is knowledgable on everything and always ready to share . Her love for Africa and nature has inspired me a lot . Linda , I have been waiting for another trip to Africa with you . So sad it cannot be materialized. While you are not here on earth with us , Your spirit will alway be there with us . Linda , you are sorely missed.
「非洲痴」是Barbara 和我私下對 Linda的暱稱。由衷佩服她的，不只是她對非洲一草一木一獸一鳥的掌握和認識，她對非洲的那種 passion, 不得不令我們相信她曾說過的話：「我前世甚或多世，一定是非洲人！」
我們很慶幸交上 Linda這位朋友，跟她度過的時光，都是美好的丶充實的丶愉悅的。對她患上頑疾，我們錯愕不已；對她奮戰癌魔，我們一直希望她能創造奇蹟；對於她的離去，我們真的是萬分萬分的不捨。但到了她生命的最後時光，我們認為Linda 仍然活得很「Linda」，我們跟她病中的通訊，仍然是那麼的有趣丶多樣丶有期盼。
Dear Linda, friend of mine, you’re a role model in my life and had excelled in everything you do. It’s been my pleasure to have your company. The laughs we shared and moments spent together, will always hold a special place in my heart. You’ll be dearly missed by many.❤️
In 2004, I started my journey as a very young enrolled nurse. And when I went back to Hong Kong from Australia from summer break, I took a summer job as a private nurse. During this time I looked after Linda’s mother. During this time Linda’s family and her maids cared for me like I was their own. Linda and I became the best of friends, until the moment she left us. Linda surprised me with recalling what we first talked about when we first met. She even remembers the outfit I wore.
Even though I haven’t been to Africa before. Linda took me on a visual trip with beautiful pictures and great story telling. It was like I visited it myself.
I’m just a little nurse, but it is my life’s honor. To be praised by Linda meant everything to me as a professional. It was a blessing to have her love and support by my side.
Today my dear Linda left me, but not in my heart. In my heart is where she will remain until I get to meet her again in the afterlife.
Love never ends
You sure have done lots of good things….. hard to think of anything bad on you…. 有義氣，有豪氣，有用得好的脾氣
Linda was my best friend since high school in HK. Everyday after school we would start our wonderful time of snacking. Stopping at every stall on the street, we would eat anything from pieces of octopus to fish balls, 鸡疍仔，豆腐花 etc. Many times we ate up all our money and poor Linda had only 10 cents left to take the tram back to North Point, just enough for the lower deck fare. Weekends and any spare time were all fun making and eating sprees, with her beloved brother Joe in tow. Those were great times!
We grew to know each other’s family intimately. To help out the then very single elder brother Paul, Linda and I picked a fancy dress for me to accompany him to a ball. Actress Lily Ho was there too with her then fiancee later turned husband. It was an eye opener for a 14 year old. I love her family.
High school together in California started our US education. While at college, we visited each other, Linda from USC and myself from Berkeley. Enjoying each other’s friends and company on our way to adulthood. Back to HK, without notifying each other, we bought the same car, a Honda Accord. Hers was beige and mine was white. Same taste, old habits never die.
To my two daughters, Linda was forever the jolly auntie, with a tremendous zest for life. Her great sense of humour, with her loving personality, generosity towards others, made her the darling of all parties and gatherings. In-depth knowledge and appreciation of classical, operatic music, plus her keen quest to learn new things and with diligence and determination, she mastered many different musical instruments. Her paintings, poems, sports and insatiable curiosity led her to a super colorful life of new heights and achievements. Now the renowned traveller has embarked on her next journey. Farewell Linda, my dear friend of 55 years. I’m sure we’ll meet again.
In Loving Memory of my friend Linda Yin
I first met Linda when I was 18, working as a secretary for her brother Dominic. Linda was 14, and was about to go to boarding school in USA. I assisted her with applications to Notre Dame High School, and visa interview at the American Consulate. We went on different paths of our lives, and the next time I saw her in Hong Kong, we were in our fifties. The Yins are a very close-knitted family and they have a tradition of meeting for lunch every Sunday, rain, hail or shine. I was invited to join them a couple of times when I returned to HK from Australia. LInda was always very friendly, generous and hospitable. Four years ago, she asked me to join her on a river cruise in France, together with her friend Karen and her sister-in-law Susan. It was during these two weeks we spent together that I was amazed to discover her vast knowledge in music, travelling and tennis. We had an enjoyable 14 days together. Life is too short for Linda, although she should have no regrets to have lived such a colourful life. Goodbye my friend. Rest In Peace.
Linda is like my big sister whom I had always looked up to.
Back in college, Linda listened to a lot of Linda Ronstadt’s songs, but then she had “ always travelled to the beat of a different drum”.
結果，你決定不等了。但是我仍然會堅持繼續用愛心為你照顧它。我們之間的遺憾不只這一件事，多年來你數次約我去Maldive, 但每次都因為不同的原因我無法同行。當時我總覺得下次吧！大把機會。原來，不是這樣的 😔 不是每件事都有下次的。
我雖然沒有機會親自和你告別，但是我確信這只是暫時的分別，我們以後會在天家重聚，然後我會讓你繼續tease 我當年的糗事，因為我知道Linda 是永遠不會變的。❤️ 你！Ta Ta
在記憶的20+年前, 認識了Joe Yin的姊姊Linda。
大伙兒聚會, 總被她的陽光氣息, 爽朗性格吸引着。Linda亦充滿活力, 熱愛生命, 熱愛大自然; 願她在另一彩虹國度, 活得更精彩🌈🌷💞💖
多谢你的愛, 多谢你令我學懂去照顧別人, 非常非常難過趕不及回來親身同你說再見, 但整如我地常常講, 你心中有我, 我心中有你, 永遠懷念你！天家再重聚！
70年代初次認識妳時是哥哥中學同學的家姐，深入認識妳時是第一次與妳及Joe，Amelia 2007 肯雅之旅。做了十多天的室友後，妳擴濶了我旅行的領域，提升了人生視野。
Linda，2018妳要求我攪豪華版日本自駕遊，從你可在車廂內安睡多次，自感我超額完成。2019 義大利Puglia區及希臘Corfu 後，新冠爆發，我們再沒機會去遊玩了，去年5月在醫院碰過正著就從此緣慳一面。今午送別妳後，就等他朝再相逢。
