Our families kept close throughout the years. She is also a very efficient business manager. We shall truly miss her! God bless!"

"I knew Andy in Shanghai and Fuhsi during her MIT days.
In 1954, they bought an old house in Haddonfield, NJ near my apartment.  Fuhsi remodeled and made it a very attractive home.  I had many  warm wonderful weekends with the Tjian family.
In 1965 they relocated to Palos Verde, CA.  Fuhsi designed a most attractive house, inside and out.  Wonderful to live in a house designed
for one self.
I last saw her in Shanghai in 2014.        Missed dancing with her.

C F Kwok."

Fushi was a strong lady with many talents and a big heart. She excelled not only in her major of architecture and design, but also in many other fields such as music, and dance. She was always willing to lend a helping hand and not afraid to stand up against injustice. Although suffered from several injuries and went through major illnesses, she never complained and always faced the problems bravely with a logical mind. We shall miss her on earth, but wish her rest in peace in heaven."

This tribute was added by Helen Lee on 21st November 2016

"It was my pleasure to know Fushi for many years.  She was an excellent cook, and she used her skills to bless people like me.  Trying to be a good friend, I told her about Jesus, but she always felt that all the religions are the same.  Four days before she was taken to be with God, she told me, “Jesus is the only God.”  I know that Fushi is at a better place; now she is dancing for joy.  Helen Lee Tsou"

This tribute was added by Jane Stevens on 17th November 2016

"I always enjoyed  her visits to Bill and Leona's home and especially listening to her stories. She was so full of energy and determination.
She even showed that determination in her last visit to Boston this past spring when she had to get in her MIT class reunion photo.
Fuji you are at peace and dancing with all the angel you will always be remembered and bring smiles to faces when they think of you."

"Fushi lived life to the fullest and gave a powerful example for all of us.  I see her now, dancing in heaven, among the clouds, and leading others there, as she did on earth.  I'm blessed to have known her and to have her dynamic and kind family in my life:  Leona, my brother, Bill, and my niece and nephew, Rita and Willy, and of course, Andy and Van.  We're joyfully dancing with you."

This tribute was added by Eva and Joseph Leonard on 15th November 2016

"Fuhsi was an elegant and accomplished lady and a dear friend of our family for decades.  My deceased parents knew her well.  She has visited us here in San Diego.  We last talked when she phoned to regret not being able to make my mother's 90th birthday in August, 2014.  
Sad I did not know about her passing until now.  Wish I had made an effort to re-connect with her after my mother passed in March, 2015.
May we all meet again in heaven where there will be no more sorrow or physical illness.  Deepest sympathy to her family from the Leonard and Pei families (representing my parents, Alex & Jeannette Srbich)"
