Obituary of Dorothy Virginia Reed

Dorothy Virginia Reed, after a brief illness passed peacefully on August 21, 2022 at the age of 57.
Beloved by family and friends, she was a devoted wife, step-mother, and incredible grandmother to three adorable grandchildren, Zoe, Emma, and Malik who knew her as Neana. She worked for PeaceHealth Medical Group bringing quality healthcare workers to our community as a physician recruiter.  She was also active in her neighborhood organization, volunteered delivering meals to those in need, and was a prominent member of Lane Leaders Association.  Beyond work, Dorothy and her best friend husband spent their days rafting Oregon whitewater, camping with family and friends, jet skiing, hiking the Cascades, Wallowas, and Yosemite, snowboarding, and traveling.  She loved taking the grandkids to gymnastics and watching them grow and prosper.  Those who knew Dorothy found her beautiful inside and out, caring more about others than herself.  This garnered tremendous respect from the medical community and business owners near and far. A University of Oregon graduate, she was born and raised in Eugene, truly a hometown girl.
Dorothy was preceded in death by her mother Jean King Chu Fung, father Ken Sher Fung, an aunt Mai Li Lum, an uncle Tin Wu Lum, and niece Jennifer Chan.  She is survived by her loving husband Kevin Anthony Reed of Eugene, a father and mother in law Jim and Marilyn Reed of Eugene, stepchildren Tyler Reed and Lindsay Reed of Springfield, a sister Amy and her husband Peter of Eugene, a brother Kennedy Fung and his wife Yenny Hioe-Fung of Eugene, a brother Henry Fung of San Francisco, a niece Sophi Chan-Brown and her husband Karl Chan-Brown of Olympia, WA, a niece Sarah of Eugene, a cousin Mary Lum-Acquavella of Los Angeles and her daughter Natalie Acquavella-Lum of San Jose, and a cousin Danny Lum of Diamond Bar, CA.
A Celebration of Life and reception will be held Sat., Oct. 1, 3-6 PM at the River Road Park and Recreation Community Center MP room, 1400 Lake Dr., Eugene, 97404. All who knew her are welcome to attend.  In lieu of flowers or gifts, make a contribution to the American Cancer Society in memory of Dorothy Reed.
