May Fukuhara Ng
May 24, 1946- October 6, 2023
Born in Fresno, CA , May grew up in Patterson, a small farming community
in California’s San Joaquin Valley. She attended Patterson High School and
later San Francisco State College. After graduation she began her life
career as a social worker for Alameda County, faithfully serving her clients
for several decades.
As a longtime Oakland resident, May was an avid Warriors’ fan, well before
they became league champions, holding season tickets for more than thirty
years. She loved traveling, especially to the national parks, diligently
stamping her parks’ passport at every visit, hoping to get to all of them one
May was known as the family photographer because you could count on
her to produce the group photo for each event. But most notably, she was
a caring and thoughtful friend who often put others before herself. She
never lost touch with friends, even those who moved far away, diligently
sending out birthday and Christmas cards and telephoning. Her loving and
enthusiastic spirit will be greatly missed.
May is survived by her husband, Paul Ng, brother Kay Fukuhara, sister
Nancy Leibowitz, nephews Tim and Micah Leibowitz and many cousins.
