Ann Lee-on Lo

3 juillet 19394 janvier 2021

Ann Lee-on Lo, 81, passed away peacefully January 4, 2021 at her home in Duluth, Georgia, after a long and courageous battle with cancer. She was born July 3, 1939 in Hong Kong, the fourth in a large and lively family of six siblings.

Ann graduated in 1960 from St. Paul’s Coeducational College and received a bachelor’s degree in history from the University of Hong Kong in 1963. She taught secondary school for two years and entered the PhD program in history at the University of California, Berkeley, where she was a Regents Scholar. On September 2, 1967, Ann married Winston Lo, then a PhD student at Harvard. She left Berkeley with a master’s degree in history and moved with her husband to Tallahassee, graduating in 1969 from Florida State University’s School of Library Science with a second master’s degree.

Ann worked at FSU’s Strozier Library, the State Library of Florida, and at the Tallahassee Community College Library, from which she retired in 1997. A loving and devoted sister, wife, mother, and grandmother, Ann capably balanced the needs of her family with her own career. While working full-time, she continued her independent research into eclectic Chinese historical topics, presenting several conference papers over the years.

A petite, vivacious, modest yet stylish woman, Ann’s hobbies included cooking, interior design, and fashion. She followed sports (especially Seminole football and professional basketball), current events, and politics.

Ann was a member of several churches in Tallahassee, including Piedmont Park Alliance Church, Thomasville Road Baptist Church, and was a founding member of the Tallahassee Chinese Christian Church, where she served as a deacon and Bible study teacher for many years. After moving to metro Atlanta in 2014, she joined the Atlanta Baptist Chinese Church, where she briefly led Bible study before becoming too ill. Friends and family sought and benefitted from her wise Christian counsel and influence, which will be greatly missed.

Ann was preceded in death by her parents, Phillip and Florence Hsu, and by her brother, Dr. Roy Hsu (Anne). She is survived by her husband of 53 years, FSU Professor Emeritus of History, Winston Lo; her sons, Michael and Jonathan (Jennifer); and her beloved grandchildren, Juliana and Johnny. She leaves behind her siblings, Margaret Wong (Dr. James Wong), Lillian Lam (Paul), Dr. David Hsu (Kathy), and Dr. George Hsu (Vivienne). She also leaves behind numerous nieces, nephews, and their families; in-laws; and many dear friends in both Tallahassee and metro Atlanta.

I remember spending Christmas back in 1986 with Auntie Ann, Uncle Winston, Michael and Jonathan in Tallahassee. The thing I most remember (apart from the amazing roast duck she prepared) was her ready laugh and kindness. She will be dearly missed by all of us.

Ann was a great servant of God and a loving sister in Christ. She faithfully prayer walked for me when I had cancer in 2006 and supported me during a complicated time in my life. I loved her and will miss her, but I look forward to seeing her again in Heaven.

Auntie Ann will be missed by me and my family. I will not forget her cheerful smiles, and how she supported her family. I also cherished the times when we gathered together through families’ birthdays and weddings. Our deepest condolences to the Lo Family.

We met Ann after we moved to Atlanta and she back from Fl. Ann was always so cheerful, loving and kind to us and everyone. She set a great example as a faithful sister/servant of our Lord. We will miss her dearly.

You will be missed Auntie Ann. Though the opportunities were few, I have always cherished the times we were able to spend with you and the family. I will see you one day in heaven. My deepest condolences to Uncle Winston and my cousins Michael and Jonathan.
