Your mom was a beautiful person with a heart of gold. She treated everyone like family and asked for nothing in return. I will miss her thoughtful Christmas notes and happy disposition. Sending you and your family much love.

Bea often came to the Seattle Symphony and was much beloved by everyone here in the Ticket Office (her 1st stop) and in the Grand Lobby (ushers and house managers). Her radiant smile, sparkling laugh and generous spirit always brightened our days whenever she attended. Her presence here will be sorely missed.

Bea's radiant smile and her kind, caring heart will be sorely missed. She brightened every place I saw her with joy, laughter and her indomitable spirit. Condolences to her family, whom she spoke of so lovingly.

I am an usher for the Seattle Symphony. Bea is an inspiration to a lot of us because she didn't let blindness stop her from experiencing the symphony on many occasions. She also put up with the vagaries of dealing with the rideshare van that sometimes came on time and sometimes didn't. Always with a smile!

I knew Bea from her visits to the Seattle Symphony. She was always happy and excited to hear the symphony and as an usher, I guided her to her seats on occasion and even read the evening's program to her. She will be missed!!

I am so very sad to hear that my biggest fan in Seattle has passed. Bea convinced me that only I could make her look beautiful with my haircutting talent at Children’s Hospital where we met volunteering many years ago. Such a positive and joyful, classy lady, that I always felt inspired by. So happy she was at a farewell party when I was moving back to Australia 3 years ago.

We danced a little dance.

Bea , you saw life as the treasure and inspiration we all should.
Every year when I told her I was going back to visit my Mother,she gave me a box of Frango’s and a wonderful card for her , complimenting her on the son she raised.

Very kind. Incredibly cheerful. Inspirational to all.

Condolences to all her family and friends.

My name is Vince and I am Dr. Fidler's Filipino dental assistant. I've only known Bea for about 5 years. We would take care of her, we would share stories and experiences. I would pick her up and bring her back to her apartment and bring her Embotido . I will always remember and admire her strong spirit and she will always live in my heart. I will miss your loving smile and carefree laughter Bea! May God keep you and rest in His peace...

Your friend,

I am stunned to learn of the passing of Bea Jung. We volunteered together at Children's Hospital for many years. Her continued optimism in the face of failing eyesight & eventual blindness was an inspiration. I especially recall the joy she found in her dancing.
My heart goes out to Bea's family for the loss of this elegant, gracious and confident woman.

Bea was a great friend to our family. In recent years, she often joined in with a group of our friends at dinners, parties, and music nights. "Tita Bea" was always lively, the Life of the Party, and loved all the live music, and conversing with anyone around her.

It was not really a party if Bea was not there. She offered to pray for those in need, especially my mother, Mary, as she battled cancer. Bea and Mary became fast friends, despite the fact that Bea could not see and Mary could hardly hear! Mary is also saddened by the loss of Bea.

So many friends loved Bea, and we will soon have a dinner party in her honor, complete with her Margarita. We now have another dear friend waiting in the Kingdom of Heaven for us.

Blessings and peace to her children and family. Thank you for sharing such a bright light, and faith filled friend with us.

Much love from the Simon family, Tom, Zita, Liam, and Grandma Mary, as well as Attilla the cat.

We remember Bea as an independent and brave woman. Both my daughter. Rebecca and I met her as a volunteer at Seattle Children's Hospital. She would call us for company and offer inspirations to my daughter whenever she comes home from the university. She would share her dancing and appreciation to the friends that pick her up to go dancing.

Rest, Bea, and may perpetual light shine upon you!

Marissa, Rebecca and David
