Chong Ok Long
January 28, 1946 – January 19, 2020
Chong Ok Long 73, peacefully passed away on January 19th 2020. Chong was known to her friends and family as “Mun” or “Mama Mun”. Mun was born on the 28th of January 1946 in Seoul, South Korea, she was the 2nd oldest of 6 children. She came to the United States in 1973, was married and had two children; Melissa Ann Long and Jonathan William Long, her family resided in Chatham, Massachusetts and then later moved to Boca Raton Florida in 1988. She later divorced and then remarried Robert Brown (deceased). Mun was a cook at the Boca Pointe Country Club for over 15 years.
Mun enjoyed attending church on Sundays and her church community. She valued her family dearly, spending time with her grandkids and great grandkids, and traveling frequently to Korea to spend time with her sisters. She loved her Korean soaps and collecting angel figurines. Mun made the best homemade kimchi, which started the family tradition that anyone who came to visit her home had to try her (spicy) kimchi or else they were not allowed to leave. Through Mun’s time in Florida, she opened her home to 8 foreign exchange students from Korea to attend school in the United States. Mun’s hobbies included tending to her orchids and her 27 pineapples that were planted around her house.
Mun is survived by her daughter Melissa Long, son Jonathan Long, daughter in-law Jacqueline Zibrat-Long, step-daughter Sharon Dillard, grandchildren Isabelle Long, Ryder Long, Shelley Esterson and Kathy Dickerson, and great grandchildren Bradley Esterson, Alex Esterson, Ally Esterson, Joshua Dickerson and Annabelle Dickerson, her brother Chong Il Mun, her sisters Yong I Mun, Yong Suk Mun, Yong Nam Mun, Song Hui Mun.

I always enjoyed visiting wit Mun. Yes I had her Kimchi and yes it was good. I really enjoyed her Korean pancakes and even though I could not understand the language I enjoyed watching her soap s with her. She always welcomed me into her and Bob’s home when I came with Sharon to visit. She will be missed. Prayers to the family.

Mun loved to get me to eat Korean food. She once cooked octopus and had me try it. Only after I ate it and liked it did she tell me what I had just eaten. We had a lot of fun at the camp with the Longs and the Collingwoods.
