August 19, 1961June 30, 2019

Our loving wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend, Jill Marie Woo Ching passed away surrounded by her family on June 30th 2019 at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX after a courageous and hard fought battle with cancer. Jill was born on August 19th 1961 to Don and Mary Jane Begalle in Waukegan, Illinois. Her family moved around before settling in the Longmont area 43 years ago. Jill married the love of her life, Sililo Woo Ching, on June 30th 1984. On that day they vowed to love, honor and cherish each other and exactly 35 years later the Lord called her home. Jill and Sililo have three children, Maria, Christina and Benjamin. Jill loved her kids with everything she had. As a member of Faith Community Lutheran Church in Longmont, Jill’s faith was what she leaned on throughout her life and cancer battle. Jill adored the outdoors, especially camping, hiking and spending time in the Colorado mountains. She loved sports, particularly watching her children or the Green Bay Packers play. Jill was caring and found joy in making everyone feel special. She made a lasting impression on everyone she met and touched the lives of so many. She will be tremendously missed. Jill is survived by her husband Sililo, children Maria, Christina and Ben Woo Ching; her parents Don and Mary Jane Begalle; her brothers Jeff (Leah) Begalle, Jim (Margaret) Begalle, Joe (Terri) Begalle; her sister Julie Begalle; and many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

I remember Jill grabbed my hand at one of our famous Phantom of the Opera parties and said, "let's dance!" And she did dance, to my surprise, like nobody was watching. So many fun times with the Woo Ching's. Jill's legacy is her beautiful kids, the love she shares with Sililo, and the happy home they built together. I'm so sad you're gone but so but happy you're free. Rest in peace ... and dance a little!

We are so sad to hear of Jill's passing!! Jordan and Ben meet in Preschool and became buddies from there on. The
WooChing's also lived a few doors down from us, so Jill and Us would walk the boys to school everyday for years. She was an amazing lady who touched the heart of many. She will be remembered for the rest of our lives! God Bless you all Ben and family. We love you and are here for you all. My Jill rest in peace and no longer have pain or suffering!! Xxoo

Jill was the heart of Longmont Elementary....every child wanted to visit the sick room to see"nurse Jill". My grandsons were the leader of the pack! I'm sorry I never knew the girls but our family LOVES BIG BEN, who, like his mom has a heart of gold. We know she's at peace and pain free now but her passing has left a lot of pain here on earth. Keep her memories close and remember: Jill will live until the last person with a memory of her passes😊. Love to each of you.

I feel blessed to have had Jill as my second mom growing up. Being best friends with Ben throughout my childhood Jill was constantly taking care of me and I feel so much for this amazing family. The bond, faith, and love these people have shown through such hardships has truly inspired me and taught me the power of god and support systems. Rest In Peace Jill there’s so much love for the WooChings in this world and I’m grateful to know them.
