     Cheav Aing Ung, 70, of Mifflintown, went home to be with her Lord on Saturday, Nov. 15, 2014, at her home after battling cancer for fourteen years.

     She was born February 5, 1944, in the village of Srey Va in Cambodia where her favorite childhood past-time was swimming with friends in pools formed during the monsoon season.

     She is survived by her loving husband of 54 years, Chhuon Ung; five children, Mardiny Ung of Elizabethtown, Dr. Padiwath Ung and wife, Aileen, of West End, NC, Manila Ung Sheaffer and husband, Glenn, of Mifflintown, Pisey Ung Wolfe and husband, David, of New Milford, CT, and Dr. Chheany Ung of Roanoke, VA; one brother, Ravy Meng and wife, Cathy, of Lebanon, and thirteen grandchildren.

     She was preceded in death by her parents, Meng Chun-Kry and Pheng Sruy, six brothers and two sisters.

     She worked at Lyon Fashions and at Triangle Pacific.

     Cheav enjoyed cooking and traveling, but especially enjoyed spending time with her family, taking walks with her husband, and  preparing meals and crocheting blankets for her family. She was a devoted and caring wife, mother and grandmother with selfless dedication to her family, joyfully serving them even when she could hardly care for herself. She loved spending time with her family, having them together, and celebrating their accomplishments.

     A memorial service to celebrate her life will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 29, at First Baptist Church of Juniata County, 23964 Rt. 35 North, Mifflintown, with Pastor Ronald Shupe officiating.  Although there will be no viewing, the family will receive friends one hour prior to the service Saturday at the church.

Natasha and I are sorry for the loss to your family. We were both fortunate to meet Mrs. Ung this summer. The family she has created is an enduring legacy and it was obvious to us the love she had for her family and also the closeness everyone felt being amongst the family. That is truly a gift and one that will carry everyone through these trying times.

Please accept my heartfelt condolences. While it has been quite some time since I taught some of her children, it seems like only yesterday. She had to be so proud of your dedication toward education. As I can see in the obituary, education continued to play a significant role in the lives of the children. While it is sad that she must leave this world, I am certain she is smiling upon the accomplishments of her children. It was truly a pleasure to teach her children who came into my classroom.

Doug and I often talk about how strong your family was and is, overcoming so many obstacles and moving forward - hard work and dedication. There are still trials ahead but together it will work out with God's help. Love you all.

God saw you were getting tired, And a cure was not to be,
So he put his arms around you, And whispered, "Come to Me."
With tearful eyes we watched you, And saw you pass away.
Although we loved you dearly, We could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating, Hard working hands at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best.

Our deepest Sympathy

My thoughts and prayers go out to the family. I grew up around them and this woman always accepted me in their home and fed me well. She was always a smiling face no matter where I saw her.

Thank you all for taking the time to send your condolences. Now 3 years later, this is the first time I have seen all of your posts. There has not been one day that she has not crossed my mind and though I know in my heart she is in better place, I cannot help but be selfish and wish she was still here with us. We are truly blessed that all of you have in one way or another influenced our lives. Miss you mah. Love you so very much. Glad to see your smiling face again.
