DEATH OF MRS DOREEN CHUNG, FORMER FIRST LADY--PRESS RELEASE Monday 7 September 2009




The People’s National Congress Reform joins the rest of the nation in mourning the loss of former first lady, Mrs. Doreen Chung, who passed away on Saturday last at the age of 77, after a brief illness. The Party tenders its condolences to her immediate family, in particular her son, Raymond, and daughter, Diane.

Mrs. Doreen Chung was a lady of enviable grace and sensitivity who supported her husband, Mr. Arthur Chung, during the years that he held the position of President of the Republic of Guyana, from March 1970 to October 1980, a critical period in the history of this nation by any standard. She was also a tower of strength in a marriage which lasted some fifty four (54) years and which was characterized by understanding and mutual love. Mrs. Chung’s support for her husband in his role as President was exemplary and played no small part in the overall success of his presidency.

The People’s National Congress Reform wishes to record its appreciation of the significant contribution rendered to this nation by Ms Doreen Chung in her capacity of First Lady.

MAY HER SOUL REST IN PEACE
