Born on Oct. 27, 1946, in Shanghai, China, Babay moved to Germany with her parents at the age of 5. She moved to the United States as an adult and raised her sons in California and Alaska. Throughout her life, she enjoyed traveling, hard work and spending time with her family.
Babay was a restaurant owner and loved to cook for her family and friends. Her Chinese Cooking School was her pride and joy. She developed several special recipes and made a few appearances on the Norma Goodman Show. Her passion was to teach the art of Chinese cooking and share her prized recipes. She touched a lot of people with her gracious hospitality and generous heart. She always thought of others first, no matter what.
The Young and Lee family would like to express their gratitude to the Alaska Alzheimer Resource Agency and to James and Cora Garcia for their many years of support and comfort.
The family would also like to express their sincere gratitude to all the family and friends who supported Babay during her prolonged illness.
