Obituary for Myung Hong

On Sunday, July 28th, 2019, Myung Hong, loving wife, mother, and grandmother, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by family. She was 64.

Myung was born on January 3rd, 1955, in South Korea, and married on March 29th, 1981, before immigrating to the United States in 1983 and making her home in Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin. In addition to being a devoted spouse for nearly 40 years, raising two successful children, and taking care of her parents in old age, Myung impacted many more in the community with her warm and welcoming touch as a server at China Palace. She was an avid cook and artist with a strong sense of aesthetics, and was selfless in her drive to make those around her happy. 

Myung was preceded in death by her mother, Ok Kum Kim, and father, Sam Nam Choi. She is survived by her husband, Soon; two children, Andy Hong and Nina Stensberg; two grandchildren, Jackson and Miles Stensberg; a son-in-law, Matthew Stensberg; and four sisters, Ge-Ja Hong, Kyong Payne, Kyonghee Mendoza, and Young-Mi Preisler.
