Qun Ying Zhang
October 26, 1934 – February 1, 2021
Qun-Ying Zhang was born October 26, 1934 in Chong-Qing, China. Fleeing the war, she moved with her parents to a village outside Chong-Qing where she grew up. She married Mr. Zi-Li Wang on January 19, 1951. After she was married, she went to school in Chong-Qing; she worked in accounting, statistics and cost analysis for China Architecture Firm Headquarter, Si-Chuan First Textile Manufacture in Chong-Qing.
Qun-Ying had three daughters, 4 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren. She was married for 70 years. In September 2001, she and her husband immigrated to Canada and lived with her youngest daughter. She moved to the long-term-care home with her husband in December 2019. She believed in the Lord and was baptized in 2006.
Qun-Ying Zhang was self-disciplined, however was kind and forgiving to others. She taught by example and was deeply loved and respected by her children and grandchildren. She was honest, with integrity, selfless and kind, always put others needs first. Her smile and politeness was known to her colleagues, brothers and sisters in church, staff and residents in the senior home. Everyone enjoyed her company and friendship.
In life, she was hard-working, strong and resilient. After her husband had a stroke, she retired to care for him for 35 years with no regrets. Meanwhile, she also took care of 3 young grandchildren and helped them to mature. Only she knew the hardship and the joy. She was kind with hidden wisdom and open minded in dealing with family relationship. She emphasized and asked her daughters to resolve family conflicts to improve family harmony and to ensure children are successful.
Qun-Ying lived a simple and diligent life. She never bought anything luxurious. “Turn off the lights right after the guest leave” left a deep impression in her children and grandchildren. She never troubled other people including her own children. Her funeral arrangement was pre-arranged by herself and she left a note saying “not to trouble the younger generation and thanks for the care before my death.”
Qun-Ying, was an ordinary woman; however, her character influenced two generations. Her children and grandchildren are working hard in different jobs in differing countries, contributing to society. She contributed her whole life to the family and her children and grandchildren. She is the model for our family and will always live in our hearts.
Although Qun-Ying was an ordinary woman, she became extraordinary because she is a child of God. She lived a life with purpose and value. Today, she rested her labor and rests in peace in Heaven!
