- With the Lord
BURNABY, B.C. - Coralee Haist, veteran missionary to China and Hong Kong, was called to higher service on October 20, after a lengthy illness.
Miss Haist was born in August, 1889, near Drumbo, Ontario. Called to missionary service in China, she sailed in October 1917 and spent over fifty years ministering God's message to the people of that land, remaining in China during the war. She moved to Hong Kong in 1952 and opened two schools and a church in Chai Wan, a resettlement area for refugees from China.
While on furlough in Canada Miss Haist, who was fluent in the Cantonese language, assisted in the Chinese Church in Vancouver, where her ministry was greatly appreciated.
Her book "How Great Oh God Thou Art" recounts some of her harrowing experiences during the tumultuous years in China and how God's hand was always upon her.
She returned to Canada permanently in 1973 only when illness made it necessary. She developed pneumonia in October 1976, and the Lord saw fit to call His faithful servant home. Coralee is survived by one brother Oscar, Daytona Beach, Fla.; four sisters, Amray, Laura, Idella all of Burnaby, and Dorothy Witty of Bolton, Ont.; one adopted daughter Helen and her husband Francis, of Hong Kong; and three grandchildren, Coralee, Gordon and Pauline.
Rev. James House, B.C. District Superintendent, was in charge of the funeral service, assisted by Rev. George R. Upton, and Rev. John Ehrhardt.
