Chow Yun Fat’s Mother Passed Away at 98 Years Old

Chow Yun Fat’s (周潤發) mother died peacefully in her sleep at the age of 98 years old on February 13. Chow Yun Fat organized a simple funeral in which only their family attended, and did not notify any friends in the entertainment industry. The cremation took place at the Po Fo_ok Hill Columbarium, and her ashes will be returned to their family home in Lamma Island.

Last year in December, Chow Yun Fat was already seen at the hospital in which he acknowledged that his mother was getting old, which is why she went in for her check-ups. Although she was on a feeding tube due to difficulties with swallowing and eating, Chow Yun Fat’s mother was still very spirited and happy.

Responding to press inquiries, Chow Yun Fat’s wife Jasmine Tan (陳薈蓮) expressed, “Thank you for everyone’s wishes. Mr. Chow and I have already recovered, because we know that she left peacefully. After eating dinner, she went to her room to sleep in which she passed away. I think it is a blessing. While she was alive, she told us that she wanted a very simple funeral so we respected her wishes.”
