ONG, Betty Kow Ten
On May 31, 2013, we lost a very special lady, Betty, who was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, relative and friend to all. Passed away at the age of 81 in Sacramento, California surrounded by her loving family.

Betty was born on July 7, 1932 in Toisan, southern Guangdong province, China to parents Bing and Suey Lee. She married her husband, Wai Ock, on November 25, 1953 and for 60 years remained the rock of the family.

Survived by her husband, Wai Ock Ong; daughters, May Linn Lee (Barry), Pauline Ong-Granis (Richard), Carol Ong; and son Arnold Ong. Loving Paw Paw to her three grandchildren, Michelle Lee, Adrienne Lee, and Bryant Lee; sister to Katie Lee and Young Lee; and has many other family members.

Betty was happiest being a wife and mother who in the mid 1950s helped with the family income working seasonally at Del Monte and Bercut-Richards canneries. She also enjoyed occasional trips to Thunder Valley and family dinners.

Betty will always be remembered for her unyielding devotion to her family and her talkative nature. Her laughter and smile could light up the room.

Family and friends are welcome for visitation at the wake on Thursday, June 6, 2013 from 5:00-7:00 pm at Harry A. Nauman & Son, 4041 Freeport Blvd, Sacramento, CA 95822. Service for the family will be Friday, June 7, 2013, at 11am, also at Harry A. Nauman & Son, with interment following the service.

The family would like to especially thank the UC Davis Medical Center staff who took care of our mom during this very difficult time, particularly the CTICU staff.

"Mom ~ You and dad accepted me when others would not have for that I am very grateful. I learned so much from you on customs I had no knowledge of, and on..." Richard Granis (Sacramento, CA)
