A most beloved woman of God, Missionary Esther Chung, went to be with the Lord on Sunday, December 5th at 4:00 a.m. She passed peacefully at her home in Chicago, surrounded by family members after a long battle with cancer. She was 81. She lived a most beautiful life. She dedicated her youth to Christ as one of the founding members of UBF in Korea. She was the first woman to marry by faith in UBF, when God established her family with Dr. Joseph Chung. Their marriage lasted 54 years. She accompanied her husband to the United States as a missionary in 1976. After retirement, they spent more than seven years in Uganda as missionaries before returning to the United States. Many people in Korea, the United States, and Uganda, as well as in other places, have been blessed through Esther's mission life, Bible teaching and prayers.
In addition to her husband, Esther is survived by three children and six grandchildren: son Joseph Chung, Jr. (wife Rebekah; children Joseph and Joanne), daughter Esther Kim (husband Henry; children Joshua and Elizabeth), and daughter Ruth Wei (husband Michael; children Sophie, Elise).
A homecoming worship service will be held for M. Esther Chung on Friday, December 10th, at 6:30 p.m. at the Chicago center. It can be joined remotely, using the links. Esther will be buried on Saturday, December 11th, at 10:30 a.m., at Ridgewood Cemetery, 9900 N. Milwaukee Ave., Des Plaines, IL 60016.
Condolences can be sent to:
Dr. Joseph Chung, 6451 N. Campbell Ave., Chicago, IL 60645, or by Zelle to the email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
