Seung Baw SooHoo
It is with great sadness that our mother/grandmother/great grandmother passed away on September 11, 2021. It is also with great comfort to know that our mother/grandmother/great grandmother is in heaven with God and her husband of 75 years and resuming.
Born on August 19, 1919, Seung Baw SooHoo was born in a small province in China where she grew up with her childhood sweetheart and future husband (Jin Leung SooHoo). Through a long process, both eventually came to the United States and made Fernandina Beach their home since 1948. They raised 5 children, and each had their unique personalities. But a common characteristic each had was their hard work and loyalty to their family which was strongly instilled by both parents. She always provided hope, joy, and faith to us all.
She is preceded by her husband, Jin.
Her family includes her daughter, May; sons, Hing Sin (Mary); Hang (Ranee); York (Nina); and Tommy (Nola). Her Grandchildren [Great-Grand children] are: Jadine [Maliya], Cynthia (Kenny) and Angela (Jimmy)[Harrison, Emme, Jaycyn]; Kristen (Jamie)[Tommy, Violet] and Alexandria (Billy)[Jordyn, Ethan, Bella]; Stephen and Matthew; and Jason (Lucia)[Robyn].
Mom was a terrific cook. She had her signature fried rice recipe in addition to her congee, sticky rice dumplings, and many more oriental dishes and desserts she cooked for her family. She also enjoyed gardening and enhanced her skills when she came to the United States. The family grew oriental vegetables year-round and continues to this day since they were scarce in the area and at the time. She was very generous, always sharing the fruits of our labor with friends and neighbors. Our Mom enjoyed animals. Around the house, there were always dogs and cats. The family also raised chickens, ducks, turtles, and pigeons. She also enjoyed fishing and crabbing during the summer months. Our Mom’s legacy will be remembered as being an amazing mother to each of her children and providing help to maximize their potential. She was a caring person and was always more concerned with others well-being. She was fiercely loyal to her husband and missed him dearly when he passed away 9 years ago. They are now re-united together and are fishing, crabbing, cooking, and growing one of the best oriental vegetable gardens in God’s world.
