In Memory of Ming Yuet Seid
August 16, 1940 - March 10, 2017

Ming Yuet Seid was born on August 16, 1940, in a small village in south China.

Ming graduated from Sun Yat-Sen University of Medical Sciences (??????) in 1969, and worked as a medical doctor in her hometown hospital. Dr. Seid was well known in her town as a highly-educated and kindhearted doctor.

After The United States and People's Republic of China established diplomatic relations, Ming, her two brothers, and a sister were given a chance to come to the US because her father was a US-born United States citizen. With the help of her uncle Wally Seid, who was living in the US, and after a lengthy paperwork process, in 1983 Ming and her son finally started their long journey of coming to America. At age 43, Ming found herself studying English in ESL class, and starting her new life from zero in Oregon.

For the first few years she worked in an Asian grocery by day and studied English at PCC by night. In 1993, with the help of family members, Ming started a Chinese Herbal Store named "Wing Ming Herbs". Ming's goal was always to help people stay healthy naturally. Wing Ming Herbs has become one of the most well-known Chinese herbal stores in the Portland area. As one of her customers said in an online review, "Wing Ming Herbs is one of Portland's treasures. We are all very fortunate to have Mrs. Ming in our community". Ming Seid's life was full of struggles, and full of challenges, and she had a lifetime of learning.

Ming, your mission was accomplished. You may Rest in Peace.
