In lieu of flowers or gifts, the family asks that remembrances be made to the Patty Yellis Memorial Fund for the Orphans of China.

The Yellis family adopted their youngest daughter with the assistance of the Living Hope Adoption Agency in 2002. In the fall of 2007, Patty was able to travel to China again and visit the orphan training centers run by LHI. Patty had an instant connection with the children in the Fujian Province of China and hoped to return for an extended period of time. However, Patty was soon diagnosed with stage four colon cancer and was never able to return. Patty maintained a connection with the children through letters and e-mails throughout her illness.
