Fung Yee Lee

September 11, 1921 — January 29, 2024

On January 29, 2024, Fung Lee, our dearest mother, grandmother, great grandmother passed away peacefully surrounded by her family.  We celebrate her overwhelming joy as she is now reunited with our father, Wing Lee, who preceded her in death in 2019. Mother was born in Canton, China on September 11, 1921. She has been a longtime resident of Pittsburgh, Pa. for 75 years.

Fung and her husband, Wing, built a successful laundry business in the heart of Oakland from 1935- 1983. After her retirement, she enjoyed her 5 children and their growing families. She loved to cook and make delicious Chinese dumplings for family and friends. A visit to her house always meant a viewing of her backyard garden, full of Chinese long green beans and melons that she was so proud of.

Her grandchildren and great grandchildren were one of her simple pleasures in life. They brought so much laughter and joy to her. A visit from any of them would prompt her to immediately make a big bowl of fried rice or any other food they may desire. She will be forever missed and will always be remembered as the heart and soul of our family. We love you forever.

She was the beloved mother of Mae (Frank) Fisher, Mary Lee (Mark Rosenzweig), Lily Chin (Dennis), Rose Tom (Leland), James Lee (Amy); Sister of  Kuey Wong of Los Angeles, Ca. Grandmother of Kevin Fong (Lynda), Brandon Tom (Diem), Laura Blahovec (Stephen), Michael Rosenzweig (Leah), Joel Rosenzweig, Shannon Chang (Karl), Morgan Lee, Gregory Chin (Mandy).
