Jin, Rose - Gaithersburg  
March 1, 1930 - May 13, 2016 Rose Jin passed away peacefully at the age of 86 in the presence of her beloved family on May 13 after a brief illness. She was born in Brooklyn, NY in 1930. Because of the Great Depression, she, along with part of her family, went back to China. She was trapped there when World War II broke out where she and her family suffered great hardships and had to struggle just to survive. When the war was finally over, she returned to the US as an adult to a strange land with no knowledge of the English language. Through a mutual acquaintance, she met and married her husband, Franklin of 64 years. Together Rose and Franklin raised a family of five children while she went to Vallejo Night School to earn her High School diploma. All of their children earned college degrees, had successful professional careers, and became upstanding citizens while growing up at a time of social turbulence and counter-cultures. Rose enjoyed a full active life, traveling to all 50 states and to all the continents, and enjoyed numerous cruises with family and friends. Throughout her life, she possessed a compassion and grace that allowed her to offer her unlimited love to help and serve others. She shared her devotion to others by helping friends in need and becoming one of the longest serving volunteers at Kaiser Hospital for 37 years where with a friendly smile and kind words of comfort, she provided help to patients. She enjoyed line dancing, and was active in the Vallejo-Napa Chinese Club. She is survived by her husband, Franklin; daughters, Diana (John) Lee, Susan (Clayton) Woo, Frances, Shirley (Mark) Suzuki and son, Donald (Alyssa); eight grandchildren; one great grandson; brother, William (Monica) Lee; sister, Mabel (William) Tom, and sisters-in-law, Marjorie Jin, May Lee, Lana Lee, and Sham Lee. In accordance with her wishes, funeral services will be private. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Vallejo-Napa Chinese Club Memorial Fund P.O. Box 9003, Vallejo, CA 94591, or the charity of your choice in her name.
