The lovely Sun Cole, was taken into the hands of our Lord on March 30, 2013, from the Cocoa Beach home she shared with her husband and lifelong partner, George. She valiantly fought a battle with pancreatic cancer for 5 plus years, before it completely ravaged her body.
Born in Seoul, South Korea on January 3, 1954, Sun married George on December 27, 1973. Sun loved everyone and was loved by all. She devoted her life to child development, culminating at the Patrick AFB Child Development Center. Throughout her 31 year career, she taught all ages of children, but always came back to her 2 year old toddler favorites. She used to say she could see a part of herself growing in every one of them at such impressionable age.
She is survived by her loving husband, George; daughters, Michelle B. Belson, Rockledge, FL and Rachel A. Pigg, Sanford, FL; son, Thomas G. Cole, Daytona Beach, FL; in addition to grandchildren, Audrey Belson, Brenna Belson, Jacob Belson, Alexandria Pig, Olivia Pigg, and Isabella Pigg. Her father, Kim Joung Oun, still resides in Seoul. Her surviving siblings include sisters, Myong Sook Kim, in Seoul, Korea and Myong Ok Kim, In Tokyo, Japan; and brother, Sung Tae Kim, in Seoul, Korea. She was preceded in death by her mother, No Sun Ho; and brother, Suk Tae Kim.
A memorial service celebrating Sun's life will be held at the Cocoa Beach Community Church, 126 South Atlantic Ave., Cocoa Beach, FL on Saturday, April 13th at 2:00 p.m.
Flowers will be welcome, but she would prefer donations to the H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center, 12902 Magnolia Drive, Tampa, FL, 33612, (813) 745-1403. Please make sure to note the donations are in her memory.
