Bok Sun Lee passed away on Thursday, Aug 29. She was 90 years young.

Bok Sun could accomplish anything her mind was set to do. She was a trailblazer, emigrating to the United States with her two young sons and husband in 1972. She was one of the first Koreans to do so. With her siblings, she built up a booming business in the garment industry.

In her later years, she relocated to North Carolina with her son, Tony, and his family.

In her private life, Bok Sun was an avid golfer and an active member of the First Korean Baptist Church in Raleigh, NC.

She is survived by her younger son, Dr. Jay Yung Lee and her five grandchildren.

Her funeral will be held on Tuesday, Sep 3 at First Korean Baptist Church with visitation 12-2pm and service 2-3pm. A burial service will be held at Pinelawn Cemetery in Long Island next Saturday, Sep 7. Bok Sun Lee will be laid to rest beside her husband of forty years, Dr. Key Sang Lee.
