Mei-Yean Lee of Jenkintown, Pennsylvania died on September 17, 2023 at the age of 81 years.  She was born on March 9, 1942 in Shin-Yin, Tainan, Taiwan to Chen-Tsu Tsai and Kwei-Tzu Shen.  She was the wife of Ru-Ying Lee; mother of Victoria Cressman, Delphine Lee, and Michael Lee; grandmother of Ian Cressman, Nicholas Cressman, and Kelin Gonzalez; sister of Marian Tsai, Ding-Joe Tsai, Richard Tsai, James Tsai, Homer Tsai, and Ding-Yuen Tsai.

She attended Shin-Yin Elementary School, Tainan Girls Middle and High School graduating in 1960. She attended the prestigious National Taiwan University, graduating in 1964 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Philosophy. She later completed a Master’s Degree in Computer Science from Villanova University in 1988, all while working full time and caring for three children at home.

Mei-Yean worked at Unisys from 1968 to 1970, and then as computer scientist at the Naval Air Warfare Center starting in 1984 for 22 years until her retirement in 2006.

Over the years, Mei-Yean has lived in Shin-Yin Taiwan, Taipei Taiwan, Philadelphia PA, Plymouth Meeting PA, Fort Washington PA, Leonardtown MD, Ambler PA, and Jenkintown PA.

During her lifetime Mei-Yean was an active member of the Taiwanese community and enjoyed socializing within this group. She was a member and President of the Taiwanese American Association of Greater Philadelphia. She was also a member of Taiwanese Grace Church.

She loved color in her life, from what she wore to the decorations she surrounded herself with and memorabilia that she collected from the dozens of countries she visited with her husband. While she enjoyed traveling, what she loved most was being with her family. She showed her love through cooking delicious meals and caring for her family. She also had a creative streak, from the cuisine she cooked to the beautiful dresses she made for herself and her knitting and embroidery. Those who’ve known her since her retirement have also seen her fun side—she could be playful and had a bright smile for those she was with.

She will be dearly missed by her family. Though she could be quiet and unassuming, her love for her family shone through in how she loved and cared for us all. Her memory and love will continue on in all of us through the ways that we share our love with others.

Relatives and friends were invited to her visitation on Saturday, October 7, 2023 from 10:00 to 11:00 A.M. and memorial service at 11:00 A.M. at Wetzel and Son Funeral Home, 419 Huntingdon Pike, Rockledge, PA 19046.

Religious services were conducted by Timothy Kao from Taiwanese Grace Church, 137 North Easton Road, Glenside, PA 19038.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her memory to Taiwanese Grace Church, 137 North Easton Road, Glenside, PA 19038.
