=====================================================================================
Peizhen Qian, the loving wife of Yulong Zhan, went to heaven peacefully holding the hands of her
husband, son, and daughter-in-law, on April 12, 2022 at 8:46 am in Lankenau Hospital, Wynnewood, PA.
She was survived by her husband Yulong, son Yiqiang, daughter-in-law Wenjing, granddaughters Viviana
(weiwei) and Annie (meimei).


Peizhen was born in Shanghai on November 16, 1947. She was the third child of Qirong Qian and
Youyu Lu. In Fall, 1961, she was admitted to the No. 1 Middle School Affiliated with East China Normal
University, a top middle school in Shanghai, where she met and befriended with Yulong. After the
Cultural Revolution began in 1966, Peizhen went to work at Shanghai Chongming Xinhai Farm in the
winter of 1968. At the end of 1973, she joined Shanghai Copper Factory, and served as driver,
statistician, financial accountant, as well as on a few other positions. After retirement from the Copper
Factory in 1997, she continued to work in the Pudong branch of Shanghai Talent Market for 11 years.
Peizhen married Yulong in 1976, and gave birth to their only son, Yiqiang Zhan, in 1977. She later
welcomed three new members to her family - her daughter-in-law, Wenjing Shen, and two
granddaughters, Viviana and Annie.


Peizhen will be remembered as a kind-by-nature, warm-hearted, amiable, selfless, conscientious
and hard-working wife and mother. She was fully devoted to her family by taking care of everything
from cooking, sewing to housekeeping. Her daughter-in-law and grandchildren considered her as the
best mother-in-law and grandma in the world. Their house is filled with evidence of Peizhen’s hard work.
The trees and flowers, inside and out, front yard and backyard, were planted and grown by her. The
window curtains, blankets, and sheets, were sewed or mended by her. The food stored in the
refrigerators and pantry and favored by each household member was purchased by her. Her love is
everywhere.


Peizhen was also dedicated to supporting her family members’ career. Yulong was admitted to the
Shanghai Maritime University after the Cultural Revolution and later became a college professor. Yiqiang
obtained his Ph.D. from Johns Hopkins University, and married Wenjing Shen who received her Ph.D.
from the University of Michigan. These achievements could not have been possible without Peizhen’s
support, and she has always taken a pride in them.


Peizhen will also be remembered as a kind and warm person by people outside of the family. At
their early marriage Peizhen and Yulong were living with Yulong’s parents and five sibling families in the
same household. Caring and loving as she always is, Peizhen respected the old and loved the young, got
along well with the elders and the peers, and treated the younger nephews and nieces like her own.
When she lived in China, she was regarded as a mother by many of Yulong's students.

As a master cook, she constantly invited the students for dinner, and provided clothing and food to those financially-
struggled ones. She also cooked numerous dinners for Yiqiang and Wenjing’s classmates and friends.
The world is impermanent, and the people are passing away. Peizhen left her happy family,
relatives, and friends prematurely, who loved her wholeheartedly. She will watch them quietly in the
sky, share their joy and achievements, help them overcome difficulties and challenges, until the day she
meets them again...


A memorial service will be held at The Donohue Funeral Home,,366 W Lancaster Avenue, Wayne, PA
19087 on April 23, 2022, from 9:30 AM to 11:00 AM. Burial will follow at Westmnister Cemetery, 701
Belmont Avenue, Bala Cynwyd, PA 19004.
