Obituary

Obituary for ShuQiong Shen

Shen ShuQiong, loving mother and wife, passed away on March 2nd, 2021 in the presence of her sons, as well as via videoconference by her two daughters, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. She was 93 years old.

Born in China in 1928, she lived a remarkable life, experiencing tumultuous times during World War II and the Cultural Revolution. As an adult, she made her home in Shanghai and worked as a physician, caring for patients and delivering babies. It was also in Shanghai that she and her husband Liu Fang raised their four children. Later in life, she and her husband spent several years in the Washington DC area, living with her children after they immigrated to the US. While in the US, she traveled, learned English, and helped raise her grandchildren.

Although she and her husband moved back to China for several years (during which point he passed away), she eventually settled in the US, gaining American Citizenship. She enjoyed dancing, music, singing, and spending time at the Chinese community center. She was also able to see her family expand to include more grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Shen ShuQiong exemplified strength and resilience, not only having lived through extraordinary times of conflict and social change, but also as a survivor of cancer and as someone who lived with dementia for over 10 years. Her strong will was an inspiration to those around her, especially her children, and watching her family grow and thrive was one of the great joys of her life. As she cared for and loved her family, she was cared for and loved by them as she passed.

She is survived by her four children, Xiuyi, Mary, Ming, and Peter, as well as numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren. Her final place of rest will be in Silver Spring, MD where she will be besides her husband.

Ms. Shen will be dearly missed. She was loved by everyone in our home. She was like a mother to all of us. Ms. Shen brought a lot of joy to our home when we cared for her. Honestly, we had so much fun taking care of her that it did not even feel like she was 92 years old. We truly cherish the time we spent with Ms. Shen. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her and her family.

各位来宾,各位家人,各位长辈,谢谢你们来到这里与我们分担失母悲痛。今天我们怀着无比沉痛的心情来悼念我们亲爱的慈母,并向她的遗体作最后的告别。母亲因年岁已高,身体各项机能逐渐衰竭,在医院治疗和运送过程中不幸感染到新冠病毒,经医院医治无效,于2021年三月二曰下午三点四十八时分与世长辞,享年九十三岁。我母亲是一位善良热忱、乐观豁达、仁义至重、吃苦耐劳、责任性强的好妈妈。母亲年轻时就有很强的事业心,她努力学习,并且在日后的工作中兢兢业业,广泛受到领导和同事的好评。平时不管她有多么受累,都自始至终履行自己所承担的应尽义务和职责,并以自己生情的乐观和热情,善良和宽厚带给家庭以无比的温暖和幸福。母亲在无微不至关心我们生活的同时,对我们的要求也很严格.她常常告诫我们“诚实为人,认真做事,互相团结,又要各自独立。”虽然这并不是什么大道理,但确是实实在在的做人准则。母亲几十年如一日地默默奉献,毫无怨言。在母亲生命最后的几年里,以母亲的身体情况来看,必须要全职二十四小时的看护。这在我们姐兄中间确实没有一个家庭能胜任的。母亲以她一贯的独特生活准则,在真善美日间护理院和最后的养老院里,妈妈和护理人员和睦相处,其乐融融,得到她们的精心照顾、关爱和尊敬,在此我们表示诚挚的感谢。我们为拥有这样的母亲而感到幸福和自豪,更为妈妈这么仓促地离开我们而肝肠寸断,万分悲痛。敬爱的妈妈,您就这样静静地离去,来而从此不用再受地上的病痛折磨,而在天上的灵和父亲永远在一起彼此照应,开始新的幸福生活,亲爱的妈妈,我还记得小时候您曾经逗我地问,当您离去时我会抱着您的头吗?亲爱的妈妈,您的这一愿望要不是新冠病毒是真的可以如愿的,您离去前哥哥和我就在您身边,医生说您可能会感觉到的,因为怕传染病我没能紧紧抱住您的头,遗憾啊!妈妈!不过还是握着您的手,并擦去您最后吐出来的食物,一直到您心脏停止跳动还舍不得走,亲人们都通过视频目送您离去。亲爱的妈妈愿您安息吧。我们的思念将会永远伴随着您,亲爱的妈妈您永远活在我们的心中。
~~ 小儿子刘修恒 敬上
