The memorial organizer requested donations in honor of Pek Ean Chong


Memorial Fund (Scholarship, Dedication, etc.).

In memory of Pek Ean Chong, the Chong family is interested in placing/donating a park bench, along the Santa Margarita River Trail. After being moved out of her Pasadena home that she'd known for nearly 4o years, the idea of returning was a wish constantly on Pek Ean's mind. Her walks along the Santa Margarita River Trail were one of the few places she found solace and did not miss Pasadena. The Chong family is currently in discussions with The Wildlands Conservancy regarding a memorial bench. We do not have full approval or final cost of the bench. $5000 is a rough estimate. In the event the the bench is not approved or donated amount exceeds the cost of the bench, the proceeds or remainder of will be donated to the Riverside Mountain Rescue Unit, a 501c non-profit organization. In that event, the donation will go towards hopefully purchasing a memorial brick in the town of Idyllwild, CA. The Chong family understands in these hard times that donating is not always an option.

    A mama who is thoughtful, generous and kind to me during my sojourn in Pasadena as a visiting researcher to Caltech. Whom I enjoyed so much dancing with too! I will surely miss the presence of a truly lovable and joyful person.
