Saying Good-Bye To Theresa Yuan

By Cheryl Ryan

I started seeing posts last week on my Theresa Yuan story. Her friends were writing that she passed away on July 13, 2023, at the age of 89. I’m sad that I won’t see her on the street anymore but so grateful that she allowed me, a stranger riding by on my bike, to interview her.

A few days after seeing the posts, I ran into her son at her home as he was going through her belongings. He said that she didn’t want any memorial or obituary. I told him that people were writing in about her and I asked if I could share her passing so that those that wanted to could share here.

He said, “Of course.” So if you’d like to share about her, please go to her post at the link above and share your memories with her friends and family. The picture I’m posting is the last photo I took of her while she was out for her daily rain-or-shine walk in March.

Her son mentioned that she was a bit of a celebrity around here. And it’s true. Watching her walk with such confidence and determination is what drew me to her and made me stop, and I’m so glad that I did.
