Meet Linda Yuen
Leaving a Legacy with JW House

Linda Yuen started volunteering on Monday nights at JW House in February 2013 after spending many years as a teacher. For more than two years Linda’s compassion, kindness and strength helped hundreds of JW House guests while they cared for a loved one experiencing a medical crisis. Linda shared many stories and amazing photos from her trips to exotic places around the globe. Each of them a significant milestone as she lived her journey with stage 4 lung cancer. Linda would say, “Do not wait to enjoy life! I am grateful for my ‘extra’ time.” Linda enjoyed her service at JW House so much so that she kept her JW House badge with her during her hospital stays. Linda passed away on September 10, 2016, but continues to help families through a generous bequest of nearly $55,000 she left to JW House. We are grateful to Linda for her service, her financial support, and her friendship.
