Helen Ong, 89, passed away on October 20, 2021. Born and raised in Mesa, Helen was a graduate of Mesa High School. Following graduation, she studied education and business at Arizona State University, earning two bachelor’s degrees and a master’s degree in education. She taught with Mesa Public Schools for 28 years, with the majority of her teaching career spent at Westwood High School. When she wasn’t teaching her business, computer, and shorthand classes, she was helping the family manage their grocery business, the Evergreen Market. Helen was a voracious reader, a prolific home cook, and an avid crafter and cross-stitcher.
She is preceded in death by her father Tong Sheng Ong, mother Wong Young (Mary) Ong, and siblings Virginia, Henry, Benjamin, and Turman Ong. She is survived by her sister Josephine Wall (Robert), nieces Tamara Havlik (Bruce), Roseanne Acevedo (Manuel), and Rebecca Ong (Robert Prince), nephew Michael Wall, and sister-in-law Michele Ong (Rick Lin).
Due to COVID-19, funeral services will be kept private, but a livestream link will be available on the Bunker Family Funerals and Cremation website on Wednesday, November 3 at 12pm.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in Helen’s memory to Helen’s Hope Chest (no relation, just happy coincidence), Sunshine Acres Children’s Home in Mesa, and Hospice of the Valley.
