Emma L. Chan

San Francisco Chronicle - - LIFE TRIBUTES -

Emma was born in San Fran­cisco, on Jan­uary 14, 1928.

She was mar­ried to John Chan. With John, she trav­eled to the ori­ent an­nu­ally. Af­ter his pass­ing, she con­tin­ued tak­ing trips to Hong Kong and the Far East to visit friends.

She worked as a le­gal sec­re­tary for a patent at­tor­ney un­til re­tire­ment. She also was a self-taught vi­o­lin­ist and was known in Chi­nese mu­si­cal cir­cles as a highly skilled and tal­ented per­former.

Emma is sur­vived by her sis­ters and their spouses Rose (Al­bert); Jane; Mar­ion (Bob); El­iz­a­beth (David); Ta­mara (Sid­ney); Cobina (Theron) and nu­mer­ous nieces, neph­ews, grand­nieces and grand­nephews.

Al­though she and John had no chil­dren, the ap­ple of their eyes was their dog, Mei-Ling. The dog loved Emma but bit John any­time she got a chance.

Friends are wel­come to at­tend the funeral on Fri­day, Septem­ber 22 at 1 p.m in the chapel of Wood­lawn Me­mo­rial Park and Funeral Home, 1000 El Camino Real Colma, CA 94014.

In lieu of flow­ers, me­mo­rial con­tri­bu­tions may be made to St. An­thony’s; the SPCA; to the Red Cross for hur­ri­cane re­lief; or your fa­vorite char­ity.
