Feb 5, 1954 - Nov 6, 2019
May Seem, age 65, passed away peacefully on November 6, 2019 at Laguna Park Care Home in Elk Grove, California. She was born February 5, 1954 in Hong Kong to Yuk Wong and Wai Lam. She left Hong Kong in 1972 to study in California and graduated in 1977 from California State University, Hayward. She married Randy Seem on April 12 in the same year in Reno. She worked as a bookkeeper with Burton French Lumbar until 1990. She started to work at Dolan’s Lumber since June that year. She was Controller at the company before her retirement in 2019.
May was a very devoted daughter; beloved wife, sister, aunt and friend; as well as faithful, hardworking and intelligent employee. Baptized as a Christian at 18 in Hong Kong, she lived out her faith as a caring, forgiving, generous, helpful, humble and kind-hearted person.
Since May was a child in Hong Kong, her Mom supported the family by working as a seamstress at home. After school, May worked hard to help Mom sew clothes. After her Dad and Mom immigrated to California, she took care of them during weekends. She lived life to the fullest through simple pleasures such as chatting with friends and family, eating gourmet foods, reading the Bible and novels, watching baseball games and listening to music. She also loved travelling in the US and Canada for vacations.
May is survived by her father; her husband; her dog, Pele; her brother, David; her sisters, Yee and Chi; four nephews and many cousins.
