With sadness at her passing but joy for her journey to heaven, we announce the passing of Gong (Yvonne) Xu on Thursday, November 9, 2023, at the age of 42. Cherished wife of Charles for almost 24 years. Loving mother of Nicholas, Oscar and Kevan. Yvonne leaves behind her caring brother Hansheng Xu, sisters Hong Xu and Dan Xu. She was predeceased by her parents Baochang Xu and Jieya zhao. After completing her Bachelor degree (2005) at Sun Yat-sen University, Yvonne delighted in her home as a full time housemaker completing many home projects.
Yvonne enjoyed life in London, Ontario with her family. She was optimistic, determined and caring. Yvonne navigated the challenges of lung cancer for a couple years. Nevertheless, she strived to stay active by jogging and swimming regularly. She was a talented chef and artist. She enjoyed outdoor gardening. With her dedicated care, her garden has flourished into a wonderful vegetable nursery with lettuce and beautiful flowers. She enjoyed walking in the neighborhood with her boys and exercising with them. Her smile was warm and tender. Her words were always encouraging and kind. Most of all, she read her Bible, shared her love for Jesus with others and strove to know God more deeply.
