Eun Sook Lee, devoted mother and wife, died at the age of 73 after a year- long battle with ALS.

Born in Seoul, South Korea, she immigrated to the United States with her husband in the 1970’s. After her husband completed his PH.D. at the University of Michigan, they moved several times before settling down in Kenosha, WI.

Out of the many places that Eun Sook lived throughout her life time Kenosha was her favorite. It was where she considered home to be. She raised her family there. She dedicated her life to them and spread love and beauty through her laughter and artistry.

Eun Sook graduated from the University of Wisconsin - Parkside with a bachelor’s degree in fine arts. Though she did not pursue a career as an artist, she continued to paint and used her artistic talents in her everyday life whether it was with her cooking, floral arrangements, or home made birthday cakes.

Even in adversity, Eun Sook was always able to find humor and create laughter. She will be sorely missed by her husband, Youn Woo, and two children, Mark and Mee Young, son-in-law, Matthew, daughter-in-law, Angie, and grandchildren, Emma, Henry, Scarlett, and Anna.

Graveside services will be private in Green Ridge Cemetery, Kenosha, WI. Arrangements were entrusted to Proko Funeral Home

Our deepest sympathy to the Lee family. We have the greatest memories from all the swim meets with Mark and Mee Young.
We had a lot of laughs.
She was a very kind and compassionate lady.

Dear Mee Young, Mark, and Youn Woo,
I was saddened to read of the death of Eun Sook. I have memories of wonderful visits with her, and I have some of her artistic creations as reminders of the beauty of her soul.
Mee Young, you were one of my most talented and sensitive students, and I would love to know how you are doing. Please, if it’s convenient, send me an email or find me on Facebook if you do that.
My sympathy to the entire family as you honor the life of a beautiful woman.

We'd like to give our condolences to Eun's husband & Mark & Mee Young. My husband & I knew this wonderful family many years ago when we were members of the Baracuda Swim Team. Our son Jeff coached & our daughter Anne was a swimmer. We attended many meets & functions with the Lee family. We enjoyed visiting with them in this close knit group that had formed during those years. I especially remember tasting Eun's delicious foods when we had get-togethers. I know that she'll be missed by her family & friends. We're sorry for your loss.
