In Memory of Betty Tseng

29 Apr 2012 – Condolences to cousins Vincent, Jerry & the family

From posting Thu 9 Sep 2010: Farriess Court Care Home/Alvaston, Derby is a home where auntie Betty TSENG is now staying. She is the remarkable lady who married mother’s 8th brother Eddie TSENG who passed away in 1989. It is good to see her and to see that she is in good hands. She will be 93 in Nov. She told of how uncle Eddie proposed to her… she fell and was covered with mud and he thought she was the one for him there and then!

This was my last meeting with auntie Betty when she was then 93. She passed away on Saturday 28 Apr 2012 at 0300hrs UK time. Cousin Jerry told his bro, Vincent she was really cheerful the night before, and for the last two weeks. The carers who found her said she looked as if she was asleep – there were no signs that she suffered.

Fond memories of auntie Betty who was a real lady, graduated from the U of Peking in the 1940s, fought and survived stomach cancer in the 1980/90s, made the best Peking duck. May she now RIP.

Jerry used to tell us that his dad, uncle Eddie’s favourite quote to them:

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime – Chinese Proverb
