Lena Quon Hou Wong
Lena Quon Hou WongLena Quon Hou Wong transitioned peacefully in her sleep on September 23, 2020. She had just celebrated her 96th birthday. She was born on September 4, 1924, in Honolulu, Hawaii, and her mother, Len Dai Ho was born on Oahu also. Her father, See Lung Lock, was born in Canton, China, traveling to Hawaii as a young boy. During her early school years, Quon Hou was given the English name "Lena" by her teachers, who found it easier to remember. After graduating from McKinley Highschool, Lena attended the University of Hawaii for two years then Armstrong College in Berkeley, California, for the next two years earning a business degree. In 1952, Lena married Albert S. L. Wong, who was setting up his dental practice in downtown Honolulu. They had four sons and Lena was very involved in all of their activities, and volunteered at Iolani School where they all attended. She also took care of her elderly parents who lived with them and were both disabled. Lena was a wonderful cook and prepared meals lovingly for her family at home and at the office. Lena was dedicated to working at the dental practice, helping her husband, and later, her three sons and grandson. Many of the patients became lifelong friends, and many of her friends became lifelong patients. Lena and Albert enjoyed 57 years of marriage together before Albert's passing. She continued to interact socially and work at the office up to the pandemic, when she felt safer staying at home. When asked about the secret to longevity, she said, "Keep on exercising your mind and body!" She was a longtime member and past director of the Wong Leong Doo Benevolent Society of Hawaii, of which her father was a Founder. An avid reader to the day of her passing, she used a magnifying glass to make it possible for her to read, do some accounting, and continue to learn. She is survived by her four sons, Allen (Cheryl), Gary, Bryan (Charlene), Lenbert (Betsey), and her eight grand- children, Berton, Jelene, Alden, Alexsi, Lansing, Makena, Kailen, and Kekoa. Although she will be missed, Lena leaves a legacy of love, joy, hard work, and devotion to family. We will remember her smiles, upbeat demeanor, sharp mind, and wisdom. The family is grateful for the loving support from all of Lena's extended family members and friends throughout the years. She was truly blessed with a full, happy, and long life!
