Life Story of Mrs. Jang Jang Yang Lee
Mrs. Jang Jang Yang Lee was born on February 15, 1927 in a warm Christian family in Yunlin and grew up in Changhua. Her father was Dr. Yaw Nan Yang, MD. Her mother was Lin Jian Yang, an Elder of Lee Chun Shen Memorial Church in Taipei. Her elder brother was Dr. Shi Rong Yang, MD. Her sisters are Huei Shin Yang and Ching Hua (Alice) Yang.
Mrs. Lee was beautiful and bright. After she graduated from Changhua Girls’ High School, one of Taiwan’s best girls’ high schools, she planned to continue her college education in Japan. Unfortunately, her plan was never realized due to World War II.
Mrs. Lee married to Mr. Ju Cheng Lee on May 7, 1948. They have four children, Beh Erl (Bertha), Ray Fong (Fong), Shing Kuo (Henry), and Yuan Homg (Arthur). Mr. Lee was a very successful entrepreneur, and Mrs. Lee was his strongest supporter and significant contributor.
With their joint efforts, they built several successful businesses in Taiwan including brick kiln, dynamo light for bicycles, an ice cream factory, Taiwan Ricoh Camera, and San Yueh Textile Co.
In 1974, Mr. And Mrs. Lee immigrated to the United States. They immediately adapted to the new
challenging life in the new world. They invested in a motel and other real estate businesses. In the beginning, the motel was in need of a major remodel and an upgrade. Mrs. Lee, without hesitation, put herself to hard work by making drapery improvements for the entire motel. In addition, she learned English at an adult school to improve her communication skill. She supported Mr. Lee’s businesses like she did in Taiwan. They lived on Mt. Olympus in Hollywood until they retired and moved to Cerritos in 1997.
Mr. and Mrs. Lee are both very kind and generous. All of the nephews and nieces agree that Mr. and Mrs. Lee are their most favorite Uncle and Aunt. Their house was always full of relatives and guests during those years. After 1979, seven grandchildren joined the family. They bring hope and great joy to the family.
After moving to Cerritos, Mrs. Lee participated in many local societies. She was a member of the
Taiwanese Senior Chorus, the North America Changhua Girls’ High Alumni Association and the North
America Changhua Association.
Every Sunday, she would sincerely prepare herself for church to worship God.
In the past few years, the health of Mr. Lee has been deteriorating. Through this rough time, Mrs. Lee had always been his strongest spiritual and physical support.
In the morning of August 19 around 9:56 am, Mrs. Lee fell down from the stairs. She was rushed to UCI Medical Center in Orange and never regained consciousness. She passed away peacefully on August 22 at 4:00 pm with all of her children and grandchildren by her bed side. She had a very happy and successful life, she was 88.
