Bok Sun Lee (1927 - 2015)

  • "Mom and her friend"
    - Yoon Lee

Bok Sun Lee lived to see her 88th birthday before taking her last breath to live eternity in Heaven. Bok Lee originated from a small town called Iri in South Korea. She was married to Keum Lee, who passed away nearly two decades ago, and together they had 10 children. During their younger years in Korea, there was a lot of disease and poverty and unfortunately, five of their children died at various young ages throughout the years. Bok was the type of person who was incredibly rare to find, and words cannot even begin to describe her. She was the epitome of selfless, humble, kind, gentle, loving, giving and hard working. She was a stunning display of how much God loves the world and wants us to be loved. She was like an angel who showed the kindness of Jesus because her faith was so strong in Christ. She was a one of a kind person who could make you laugh without even trying, just being herself. She was also very old school, still washing clothes on a washboard. Material things meant nothing to her. The things that meant the most to her were God and her family. She remained this way her entire life. It was as if she existed in the world but stayed in her own time. Bok moved to Alaska more than 35 years ago, to Delta Junction, to help her oldest daughter with the family restaurant, where she cooked and helped watch over her then youngest granddaughter. She eventually migrated to Anchorage, Alaska, where she settled until her last day. She is survived by her son, Yoon Lee; and daughters, in order from oldest to youngest, Myeong Lee Hines, Myeong-Shim Sin, Soon Sorensen and Yoon Jung Lee; along with 11 grandchildren. The funeral service will be held on Tuesday, Dec. 22, 2015, at 11:30 a.m., at Trinity Presbyterian Church, 12310 Lorraine St., Anchorage, AK 99516; 907-345-4823. Arrangements are with Janssen's Evergreen Memorial Chapel.
