R.I.P. HASNAH BINTI MOHAMAD YUNUS - 1956-1958
I regret to inform that Hasnah Yunus from the 1956-58 Kirkby batch passed away on 18-6-2014. I learned this from Chong Hong Chong. This was confirmed by Amin Zahari bin Mahmud (56-58) who is residing in Pahang.
Hasnah’s contact numbers are no longer valid and as such the details are sketchy. According to Amin, she must have been 77/78 years old and had been ailing for some time.
She passed away at the University hospital at 1.00 am and the funeral took place on the same day.
I understand that she was a very good singer and was well-known as a singer before she went to Kirkby. She used to sing on Radio Malaysia under the name Adek Hasnah.
Her husband passed away 5 years ago. She had two children. One is a Professor at the UITM and the other is an English lecturer.
Not sure if the address is still valid but this is what I have:
4 Lorong Putri 5/9C, 46000 Petaling Jaya.
If anybody has her contact number/s kindly inform me, please.
