Kyong Shon

Kyong was called home by our Heavenly Father on Thursday, January 24th,after suffering complications due to cancer. She passed on at home surroundedby family, friends and love.

Kyong immigrated to the U.S. in 1972 from S. Korea. She moved to Washington in 1977 and became a citizen in 1978.She moved to Federal Way in 1991 and was a small business owner, becoming an integral part of the community when she and her husband started World Mission Tae Kwon Do in 2004. They have served our inner city youth and taught both young and old out of the basement of Our Savior’s Baptist Church who so graciously allow them to run their program free of charge, so that they may teach free of charge.

Kyong was a deeply spiritual person, dividing her time as a member of both Our Savior’s Baptist Church and Light of Grace Korean Church. When she was first diagnosed with cancer in 2010, her motto was “God will bring me through before he brings me home. I am strong in God”
