Chong Min Rumple, age 70, of Wilmington, NC, went to heaven on Monday, February 15, 2010 at UNC Hospital, Chapel Hill. After an unexpected illness, she passed peacefully, surrounded by family and friends.
Chong was born January 13, 1940 in Seoul, Korea, daughter of the late Bok S. Im and Chang W. Park. She courageously made her home in the United States over 40 years ago and paved the way for the rest of her nine family members to have a chance at a better life.
Leaving to cherish her loving memories are her children, Angela Lynn Shepherd and James Wayne Rumple, Jr. both of Wilmington, NC. Additional surviving family members include her brother Kuang Ho Park of Atlanta, GA and five nieces, Eun, Sun, Kyung, Jung, and Min. She is also survived by countless friends and loved ones.
Chong was a wonderful homemaker and strongly devoted to God, to her family and to her friends. Her passions were cooking, gardening, dancing and music. She was young at heart, loved to laugh and make those around her laugh. She touched the lives of many with her genuine compassion and her ability to give love and support to others. Chong was a beautiful woman who was respected and adored by all who knew her.
A memorial service will be conducted at 2:00 PM on Sunday, February 21, 2010, at Wilmington Burial and Cremation Service. The family will receive friends following the service at 5109 Everette Court, Wilmington, NC.
