Chiep-Lang Lek

October 5, 1949 — November 12, 2021

Chiep Lang Lek was born on October 5th, 1949 in Ta Kao, Cambodia. She was married to Lounheang Eung and had two daughters: Haeng Eung and Sok Haeng Eung. Sok Haeng passed away to malnutrition and Lounheang passed during the Khmer Rouge. Both Chiep and Haeng Eung escaped the Khmer Rouge and went to a refugee camp in Thailand in 1979. They would stay there until November 23rd 1982, when they came to the United States. Chiep took on jobs at the Post Bulletin and the Radisson as a housekeeper. She also became a grandmother to three grandchildren: Grace, Gloria, and Gideon. During her life she got to experience traveling to many places such as China, Europe, Cambodia, Mexico, Jamaica, and many cities in the US. One fun memory she had was getting to meet Queen Elizabeth II. She also actively went to Autumn Ridge Church and her faith is very important in her life. However, for many years, Chiep struggled with diabetes and a dysfunctional liver. She was later diagnosed with liver cancer in her later years of life. Her battle with all these things came to an end as she peacefully passed away at the Methodist Hospital at 11:05am on November 12, 2021. She was surrounded by family and those who love her. May she rest peacefully with our maker and our Lord in the Kingdom of God. Till we meet again. Funeral services will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, November 20th, at Autumn Ridge Church, 3611 Salem Rd SW, Rochester, MN 55902. Visitation will start at 9:00 a.m. until the time of service at church. A lunch reception will follow. Burial will be at Oakwood East Cemetery.
