JANG, DorisPosted: March 12th, 2021
1931 – 2021
Doris Jang of Lethbridge, beloved wife of the late Henry Jang, passed away peacefully on Monday, March 8, 2021, at the age of 89 years.
Doris is survived by her daughters Mae, Fawn (Mark), and Sue; sons Ken (Margaret), and Ming (Phi); Grandchildren Ashley, Braden, Marleea (Aaron), Ethan, Nolan, Rylee, and Mathias. She is also survived by her younger sister, Mrs. Sim Yip Wan of Calgary.
Doris was born on September 23, 1931 in Guangdong Province, China. She grew up in a rural farming community, during the great famine. She had also witnessed the Japanese occupation of China, during the second world war. After the war ended, Doris relocated to Hong Kong where she met her future husband, Henry. They welcomed their first daughter, Mae before Henry immigrated to Canada.
In 1958, Doris and Mae joined Henry who settled in Lethbridge, Alberta. There they expanded their family with four more children.
Doris was an exceptionally hard-working individual. Together with her husband, they had managed to operate a successful grocery store business, and several restaurant ventures. One of her most notable accomplishments, was her perseverance to continue running Henry’s Restaurant for 32 more years with the support of her children, after her husband’s passing.
Family was everything to Doris. In particular, her grandchildren were the apple of her eye, she loved spending time with them. Her passion was cooking and sharing food with family and friends. Doris also enjoyed travelling, especially to Hawaii and Las Vegas. We were blessed to have one last family trip with her to Las Vegas and Disneyland for Christmas in 2019 where she was able to enjoy one last flight on Peter Pan with her grandkids.
A special thanks is extended to the staff of Bridge Home Care, and her family physician Dr. Stephenson, who provided exceptional care and kindness to Doris in her later years.
