Rosita Tong, an angel among us, gone too soon...

Rosita, Rose or Rosie as she was known, was one of the most special people you could meet. Her zest for life and loving spirit was felt the moment you met her and for those of us who were a part of her life, we feel the void she left.

Rosita was born in Hong Kong to parents Lam Chung Sang and Kwan Wai Quen. She had two siblings, Janet and Jason. Rosita's primary education was in Hong Kong and after coming to the United States Rosita completed her higher education, graduating from Pasadena Community College and San Diego State University. In 1966 she and the love of her life Andrew Tong married. Life was a grand adventure for Rosita and Andy. Andy was an executive for Northwest airlines and with his position they lived all over California - Pasadena, San Francisco and settling in San Diego. They also loved to travel the globe visiting Europe and Asia, frequently returning to Hong Kong to visit with family. Rosita will tell that some of her favorite memories were the cruises she and Andy took.
