Wenzhuo Li passed away shortly after midnight on April 24th, 2023. She died peacefully at home at the age of 67, surrounded by her family.
Wenzhuo was born on September 3rd, 1955, in Nanchang, Jiangxi, China. She came to the US to complete her Ph. D in molecular biology as a fellow in the prestigious CUSBEA program, and stayed to build a family, a skyrocketing career, and a fulfilled life. She was an accomplished scientist, a sudoku savant, a loving wife, and the baby of the family to her older sisters. She was far too nice to be a tiger mom. She outlived even her most optimistic prognosis by nearly a decade, which was no surprise to anyone who knew just how stubborn she could be. She did not waste those years; she lived them fiercely with delight, high spirits, and laughter at inappropriate moments.
Wenzhuo’s passing is mourned by her husband Kexi, her sons Kevin and Brian, her grandsons Evin and Owen, her sisters Wenyi, Wenzhong, and Wenpei, her brother Wenou, and the hundreds of people who loved her in life and in death.
Funeral to be held Thursday April 27th, 2023, at 4:00 PM at the Bradley, Smith & Smith Funeral Home, located at 415 Morris Ave, Springfield, NJ 07081.
In lieu of flowers, Wenzhuo’s husband Kexi asks that donations be made to the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in Wenzhuo’s name to help further the fight against cancer. We will always be grateful to them for helping Wenzhuo live with joy for her remaining years with us.
追悼会将于2023年4月27日星期四下午 4:00 在 Bradley, Smith & Smith Funeral Home 举行，地址为：
415 Morris Ave, Springfield, NJ 07081。
