Yang enjoyed working and helping others. She worked for Kelly's Restaurant for 8 years. Then continued her work at Roanoke Island Rest Area for 11 years up until her illness.
Yang had a heart of gold and would do anything to help anybody she came in contact with. She always greeted you with the biggest brightest smile but one thing about Yang she definitely was going to keep it real and tell you like it was. Her favorite sayings were "It is what it is" and “it's been real.” She enjoyed reading and writing in her spare time, drawing was her hidden talent and she loved her music. Yang loved her children, family, and friends dearly. She enjoyed spending quality time with her nieces and nephews. Everybody always wanted to be with aunt Yang. Her children could not have hand picked a better mom. She loved her kids more than she loved herself. There is not nothing she would not do for her children. She believed in praying and calling on God in any time of need and she loved her gospel music. She had a special place in her heart for her aunts,and uncles.
