Chunn Shou Jun, formerly known as Chunn Sim, was the only daughter of Chunn Tim and Guo Mui from Panyu, Guangdong. Her parents were separated since she was born. She moved to Hong Kong together with her mother, who worked as a live-in domestic worker to earn a living. During the war, she met her ex-husband Ho Hei on a ship and had a son, Che To. However, her ex-husband decided to return to the mainland to settle down, but unfortunately got killed by the Communist. Now a widow, she took her son and mother to start anew and make a living again. With her indomitable, diligent, and thrifty personality, coupled with excellent communication skills, she accumulated good connections, which helped her earned her first pot of gold.
More than ten years after the death of her ex-husband, she was introduced by a friend to her current husband, Li Kai Fun. Together with her current husband, they had two daughters, Yee Ha and Yee Man. Shou Jun was very forward-looking in education, not only did she arranged for her children to attend the most prestigious schools, but she also ensured that they were enrolled into schools that suited their personalities. She had been enthusiastic about public welfare. In terms of public duties, she served as the wife of Po Leung Kuk year 1969 Board of Director, and the wife of the founding member and seventh president of the Lions Club of Happy Valley. She was also a lady with astute business acumen. In the 1970s, she successfully obtained her stock broking license and worked as one of the few female stockbrokers at the Connaught Building Kam Ngan Stock Exchange Ltd. During her career, she met Ms. Cheung Ying Chee (Mrs. Wong). Mrs. Wong admired her integrity, easygoing and straight forward personality. They became close friends and shared many heart-to-heart stories over the years. Shou Jun’s interests were extensive, she turned to the jade business when the stock market crashed.
After the passing of her mother and husband, Shou Jun moved to Australia with her youngest daughter. During this period, she travelled frequently to many places around the world. She traveled to Toronto, Canada to visit her eldest daughter, and the United States to visit her close friend Mrs. Wong, who immigrated with her family at that time. Subsequently, her son and eldest daughter started a family in Canada, while her youngest daughter and son-in-law returned from Australia to settle down in Hong Kong. Her youngest daughter and her husband took her to yum cha after church service every Sunday, which indirectly reignited her interest in Christianity. In year 2000, a friend of whom she had known for many years, Pastor Luk Siu Fan invited her to a nearby Evangelize China Fellowship Tsim Sha Tsui Canaan Church to attend church service and join gospel classes. Shou Jun was eventually baptized on October 16, 2005. Thereon, she was determined to dedicate to God for the rest of her life and never deviated.
In 2010, her granddaughter was born and has become her little bundle of joy. Her granddaughter was deeply fond of her grandmother, and Shou Jun always enjoyed listening to her granddaughter’s recitation, singing, and playing the Harp.
Australia always had a special place in Shou Jun’s heart, that she would spend half the year in Sydney by herself. In 2012, unfortunately Shou Jun had an accident and lost her sight in the left eye. A church volunteer, Fanny Ng, whom she met at the Anglican Church was extremely kind and generous to care for Shou Jun when she was rehabilitating in nursing home. Fanny not only took care of many things for her, but also accompanied her to church, strolled the streets, took her to yum cha and shared many meals together.
After two years of recuperation, Shou Jun returned to Hong Kong in 2014. She was reunited with her youngest daughter and her family. They had frequent gatherings on Sundays and festive days. Brothers and sisters of her church were also very caring towards her and visited her frequently. Her mother’s former employer’s son Ram, and daughters Maria and Devi still treat her like family. Maria, who lives in Hong Kong, visited her from time to time and accompanied her to the hospital for her regular check-ups. During this period, Mrs. Wong has returned to Hong Kong and often visited Shou Jun, bringing her favorite fruits and long-boiled soup. In addition, Fanny always kept in touch, calling whenever she had time to check in with Shou Jun. She would also visit Shou Jun whenever she returned to Hong Kong to visit her family.
One of her life mottos was that knowledge is eternal wealth. Even during her old age, she continued to be active in church and elderly centers. Learning never stopped for Shou Jun – singing, computers, oil painting, English, Putonghua, and so on. During the past two years living in the nursing home, she was always praised by the nurses for having a clear and sharp mind. On January 31, 2022, she joined the Lord, to rest in peace at the age of ninety-five.
