Ok Ran Lee was born on July 3, 1926 on a tiny little island of Udo, south of Jeju Island in South Korea. She passed away in her home in Federal Way, WA on the same day she entered this world – July 3, 2013. She was the youngest of four daughters, born to Mun Yul Oh, her mother a local sea-diver and Im Keum Lee, her father an Eastern medicine doctor.
On August 12, 1949, she married Ok Shin Kim who passed away in 1999, and is survived by five children, four daughters and one son, thirteen grandchildren, and eight great grandchildren.
She will be greatly missed for her sharp wit, wicked sense of humor, her singing, her dancing, her cooking, and her occasional visits to the one-cent slot machines at Muckleshoot. She will be especially missed for her unwavering ability to see the good in people, her gentle spirit, her constant care for others, and her telling and retelling of stories and memories she had of everyone.
Funeral services to be held at Tacoma Catholic Church in Fife, WA July 9th Tuesday at 11am.
