Yi Ru Pan Liu passed away October 8, 2016 at the age of 65 in Ogden , Utah comforted by her family. She was born January 14, 1951 in Puli, Nantou Province, Taiwan (ROC)
Yi Ru grew up in a very loving family and was taught how to garden and to cook. Two things she perfected in her lifetime. She grew such beautiful gardens filled with fruits, vegetables and flowers. Each was a gift from God and from hard work. Yi Ru loved to cook! She made many Chinese delicacies including steam buns, pot stickers, rice dumplings, too many to mention. She was the youngest of seven. And was loved and treated like the ‘princess’ of the family.
Yi Ru was an excellent student. She graduated high school and looked forward to furthering her education. Unfortunately, she had to put off her education because of the death of her Father. She worked hard to help her family. She married Quing Zhang Liu in 1967 and raised 3 children, two daughters and one son. She opened her own restaurant which became a local hot spot because of her delicious food! She was a wonderful mother and carried on the traditions she learned by teaching her children to garden and cook. (Which has really benefited all of us!) She was raised in the Buddhist religion and learned many of the wonderful traditions of her fathers. She loved seeking knowledge of spiritual things, learning of the world, times and seasons, anything she could. She embraced the gospel of Jesus Christ after searching through many books and prayers. She became a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints on 10/05/2000. She had many callings in the church and really did her best to magnify each of them. She was nick-named Mama Liu by missionaries, friends and all who came to know and love her.
Yi Ru was preceded in death by her husband and is survived by her children Chih Wen Liu Davidson, Chih Fang Liu Shen and Han Yang Liu. Nine grandchildren.
