Phang Hee Lye (Bukit Brown)

Located in Hill 2 Division D, is the grave of Phang Hee Lye (Mrs Lim Moi Kiah). What is interesting is when i researched about her, i found an amazing photo of her hearse and her children in mourning clothes featured in the newspapers. Unfortunately, this grave is also affected by the impending highway. The LTA peg no is 1877.
