Kim, Jong Sook

Dec. 2, 1932 — May 24, 2011

Sue Kim died on May 24, 2011, at her home in Davis. Sue was born Dec. 2, 1932, in Seoul, South Korea, the third child of Pok Hee Pak and Young Lee. In 1955, as a young bride, she moved to Okinawa, Japan, with her late husband. After several years in Okinawa, they spent a short time in New York before coming to California where her husband completed his education and became a professor at UC Davis. In 1972, Sue was hired to teach Japanese at UCD where she continued working as a lecturer and librarian until her retirement in 1992. Sue was a skier, a bike rider, golfer and tennis player. She loved music and theater and traveled to interesting places until she developed a respiratory illness. In later years, she became an avid fan of professional tennis and ice skating.

In 2004, she became a volunteer for the Senior Ombudsman program and served until 2008 as a representative for the University Retirement Center and other local facilities in Davis and Woodland. She made a name for herself as being concerned and caring for her clients.

Sue is survived by her sisters, Jong Duck Lee, Jong Ok Lee and Kyung Nun Lee, and numerous nieces and nephews. A memorial gathering will take place at a later date for Sue’s family and friends. She will be especially missed by her sister Jong Duck, and her family of friends.

    Mrs. Kim was my first Japanese teacher. Even though I had studied foreign languages before (French and German), Mrs. Kim helped guide me through this totally new language full of hiragana, katakana, and kanji. She also encouraged me to keep studying Japanese even after I once wanted to quit.金先生の突然の訃報に大変驚き衝撃を受けています。学生時代、金先生が日本語の美しさと雅を紹介して頂きました。ご冥福をお祈りしています。
