July 25, 1963 - January 28, 2017
Moning Shen, 53, of Plano, Texas, died peacefully in her sleep with her family by her side on the evening of January 28, 2017. Her passing was most unexpected.
Moning was an only child, born on July 25, 1963 to father Shen Jingwang, and mother Sun Shiying, in Beijing, China. In a society filled with turbulences, she had a worry-free childhood, loved dearly by grandparents. In her early twenties, she met her future husband Marvin Wu when she was a librarian in a college where they both worked.
In 1989 Moning came to the US to joint her husband who was a graduate student at the time. She worked on various jobs during this period to support the new family. Upon Marvin’s graduation from school, she helped him start and run a small business. This was also the time that she gave birth to their daughter, Allison Wu.
Moning was a most loving and devoted wife to her husband, Marvin, of 31 years and loving and protective mother to her only child Allison. Despite physical limitations, Moning’s positivity and enthusiasm could always brighten up a crowd, and her kindness and consideration towards everyone she met was extraordinary. She enjoyed traveling, cruises, Mahjong, knitting and reading of detective novels. In recent years the winter vacation to Cancun with daughter Allison became her favorate.
She is survived by her husband Marvin, daughter Allison, mother Sun Shiying, and her many sibling-like cousins with whom she grew up. Moning was preceded in death by her father Shen Jingwang.
A celebration of life service will be held at 1:00 P.M., on Sunday, February 5, 2017 at Aria Memorial Chapel in Dallas.
