Genevieve Clift

Obituary of Genevieve Clift

Gum Ying, or as she was known, Genevieve, passed away suddenly on March 7, 2024. Born January 6, 1944, in Vancouver, Canada, Genny was the youngest of Bing Dot Chong and Lin Tai Lim’s seven children. When she married Donald, the love of her life, they knew Olympia, Washington, would be their home and happy place.


Genny was predeceased by her parents; husband, Don; and siblings, Dick, Fay, May and Beverly. She is survived by her brother, Henry (Christine); and sister, Shirley. Genny had no children but cherished her stuffed Teddy Bear family.


For the last 11 years, Genny’s beloved Doodle, Mollie, was her rock and stayed by her side until her last breath. When Genny turned 80, she wanted to experience one last RV road trip to her favorite parts of the USA. Sadly, she never made that trip, but she’s now in her ultimate happy place, reunited with Don and Mollie.


Genny requested no service but donations in her honor may be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
