Obituary

Rose “Rosie” Kong passed away peacefully at home on Sunday afternoon, October 11, 2020 at the age of 86. She is survived by her loving family of three sons George Kong (Mary), Jeffrey Kong (Gwynne), Johnny Kong, and one daughter May Lee Shepard. She is also survived by her grandchildren Kaitlyn, Sabrina, Willard Jr., Danielle, and Timothy Michael.

Rose was born on November 12, 1933 in Singapore to her father, Chong Zee Kung and mother, Wong Ven Ying. She met her first husband, Kong Ken You, a merchant marine, and married him on December 21, 1959 in Singapore. She immigrated to the United States in February 1960 and settled in Ellenville, New York as a homemaker.

Widowed in May 1973, she had to join the workforce and started working in the kitchen where her husband had worked, The Nevele Country Club, while raising four young children by herself. She worked at The Nevele until her retirement in 2001.

Rose married her second husband, William John White on October 27, 1982. She and William relocated to live with her son, Johnny, in late 2005. Rose was widowed a second time when William passed away in August 2007. Rose had since lived with Johnny, following him from North Plainfield, New Jersey to Alpharetta, Georgia and to her final home in The Villages, Florida.

    John and Family,
    Please accept our condolences. We will miss seeing John taking Rose for her daily ride around The Villages. They have been great neighbors and Rose was extremely blessed to have such a great son to take care of her. We are praying for your family.
