Obituary for Ying Shi

石英女士 生平







Ying Shi’s Life

Ms. Ying Shi was born on January 8, 1936 and passed away on April 5, 2021 at the age of 85. A native of Shanghai, she went on to enroll at the Beijing Forestry University upon completing high school. After graduation, Ying worked at the Chinese Academy of Sciences at both the Institute of Applied Ecology in Shenyang and at the Institute of Botanical Research in Nanjing. She subsequently served as vice professor at the Nanjing Agricultural University. Following retirement, she immigrated to the United States to live with her younger son and his family.

Ms. Shi was married to Mr. Shuyuan Chen. Together, they were loving and caring parents to three children, raising them with both thrift and diligence. All three children have gone on to attain both college and graduate degrees and have since assumed successful professional careers. In her youth, she was a graceful woman. She was independent, diligent and dedicated to caring for her family. Her character has garnered her tremendous love and respect from all family members, friends and colleagues alike.

The first half of her life was characterized by tremendous hardship given the persistent social instabilities, political turmoil and wars that plagued that era in China. Ms. Shi was raised in the metropolis of Shanghai where her family owned a jewelry store. However, a series of unfortunate events turned her childhood upside down— the early passing of her father, the rapid depreciation of the family wealth due to war-inflicted hyperinflation, a multi-year exodus to Sichuan to flee the Japanese invasion and the infamous Chongqing bombing and massacre were of events of particular note. Yet, despite all these hardships, she remained resolute in the pursuit for a good education and a better life for herself and her family. Through her early hardships, she developed an enviable character highlighted by independence, resourcefulness. Over the course of her life, she demonstrated to future generations what it truly took to be a considerate, dedicated and caring mother. She will forever be remembered.

May Ying Shi be blessed by all families and friends in heaven.

Ying Shi is survived by three loving children and 5 grandchildren. Her husband Shuyuan Chen passed away one and half months prior.
