Rosalind Wong lived a full 91 years before passing away on Monday, Dec. 3, 2012. As was her manner, she fought until the end. Private family services will be held.
She is survived by her husband, Jack; two daughters, Pamela Wong and Candace (Richard Jensen) Wong; and her son, Randy Wong, to whom she was totally devoted.
Rosalind was born Jan. 16, 1921, in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, and was part of a large family. Her sisters, Daisy King, Cynthia Shum and Gumbia Wong; her brother, Ed Wong; and many nieces and nephews also survive her.
She was preceded in death by her parents; and siblings, Harry, James and Jean.
In 1948, Rosalind bravely agreed to venture to Cedar Rapids, after Jack went “dear hunting” and found her. For 52 years, Rosalind and Jack worked together at the family business, the Dragon Restaurant in downtown Cedar Rapids.
Her family thanks everyone for their thoughts and kindness, especially, Drs. Naser Payvandi, Matthew Anderson and Michael Waldman.
Memorials may be directed to the Mercy Medical Center Foundation.
