GEORGE TOWN – Puan Sri Chui Kah Peng, the wife of former Penang chief minister Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon, passed away peacefully early Sunday after losing her battle with cancer. She was 65.
Chui died at about 1am at the Gleneagles Medical Centre ward room surrounded by close family members.
Eight hours of religious chanting was held at the ward and arrangements have been made for her body to be brought to her residence in Pulau Tikus.
Penang Barisan Nasional chief Teng Chang Yeow said Chui was a nice and caring person.
“She is thoughtful on the needs of others. It is a great loss to us, especially in Gerakan,” he said.
State Gerakan acting chairman Oh Tong Keong offered his deepest condolences on the demise of Chui, while Penang Gerakan Legal bureau chief Datuk Baljit Singh said the party lost a very caring personality, who did so much for the needy.
“May her soul rest in peace,” Baljit said.
Chui’s funeral will be held on Thursday (July 28). – The Star
