Obituary for Mrs. Marcelle Elizabeth Wong

January 13, 1933 - January 12, 2018
San Antonio, Texas | Age 84


Marcelle Elizabeth Wong - devoted wife, mother, and grandmother - passed away on January 12, 2018, the eve of her 85th birthday. Born in Ecaussinnes, Belgium on January 13, 1933, Marcelle grew up in Europe until meeting Richard Wong, a young USAF lieutenant, who would become her husband for over 60 years. Richard and Marcelle were married on March 23, 1957 and moved to the United States to start their family.

As Richard's military career moved them all over the country as well as two tours of duty in Taiwan, Marcelle steadfastly raised their two sons with an abundance of love and compassion. After the birth of her grandchildren, who affectionately refer to her as "Momo," she retired from her career managing a Hallmark store and moved to San Antonio with Richard to share that same love and compassion with them.

Marcelle is preceded in death by her parents, brother, daughter-in-law Susan Koger Wong, and fellow grandparents Raymond and Shirley Koger. She is survived by her husband Richard Wong, her sons Barclay and Christian Wong, her grandchildren Nicholas and Elizabeth Wong, and many beloved extended family members, who will all miss her dearly.

In the spirit of Marcelle's dedication to her family, there will be a small private family service at her home. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to the Alzheimer's Foundation of America or the Susan Koger Wong Memorial Scholarship at Alamo Heights United Methodist Church.
