April 6, 1929 - January 2, 2021
For 91 years Eva Lee has graced the world with warmth and joy through acts of kindness, unwavering support, light hearted humor, positivity, and an infectious smile which radiated her uplifting spirit and zeal for life. On January 2nd she peacefully passed away at her home in Suisun City. Born on April 6, 1929 as the fourth of seven children to the late Dan and Elsie Foon, Eva grew up in Suisun Valley working on the family farm and attending the historic Gomer Elementary school. After graduating from Armijo High in 1946 she went on to major in art at UC Berkeley. Aside from refining her artistic talents and starring in fashion shows, she began working at Naval Air Supply in Oakland. It was here that Eva met the man who became her husband for 34 years until his death, George Lee. They were married on April 12, 1958. By 1962, Eva left her job to raise a family but would return to Naval Air Supply years later and retire with eighteen years of service. Eva was a very lively woman who was involved in more things than seems humanly possible. She was a very giving person who always contributed her time to others whether it be making her children’s clothing and costumes, baking for school parties, contributing personalized drawings or calligraphy for schools or associations, making elaborate decorations for events, drawing things for her children on their lunch boxes, clothes, jackets, posters or whatever they requested, upholstering or refinishing furniture, building dog and doll houses, gardening, cooking new recipes all the time, typing up school reports, ballroom dancing, fishing, fashion, taking the kids on trips, going to concerts with her family, finding new homes for the animals her children always seemed to bring home, finding fun classes or activities for her children, and she did all of this while still working part time and belonging to the Chinese Cultural Association. Even after Eva formally retired, she started working part time at Marie Callender’s as a hostess because she said she was bored. Eva definitely lived life to the fullest and will be dearly missed. Eva is survived by her four children: Greg Lee, Kathy Cook, Cindy Lee and Kimberly Lee; six grandchildren: Kelly, Monica, and Gary Cook; Payton, Dylan, and Reagan Lee; three great grandchildren: Cataleya, Kalani, and Kymani Hinkle; brother Charles Lum of Suisun Valley; sister Ruby Ng of El Cerrito; and a loving dog named Charlie. Eva is predeceased by her brothers Louis and Edward Lum and sisters Jessie Bow and Elaine Yee. A graveside memorial will be held for Eva at 10 am on January 14th at Rockville Cemetery 4219 Suisun Valley Rd, Fairfield.
