Soon Jo Wolff of Longmont, Colorado passed away on Tuesday, October 29, 2019 after living bravely with lung cancer for over two years. She was surrounded by her loving family when she peacefully passed away.
Soon Jo was born on May 22, 1965 in Gangwon-do, South Korea. As a young child, her family moved to Seoul, South Korea. In 1987, she married Kevin Wolff and shortly thereafter, daughter Samantha completed their family. They spent their first two years of married life in sunny San Diego, California before moving to Saginaw, Michigan where they resided for the next 21 years. In 2011, they moved to Longmont, Colorado to be closer to their daughter and to enjoy the natural beauty of Colorado.
Soon Jo spent over 20 years in cosmetology making people feel beautiful— both inside and out. Her bright and shining energy was reflected through a meticulous dedication to her craft. While she enjoyed the technical aspects of her work, her true passion was connecting with people through her amazing spirit and kind heart.
She was an active member of the Korean Presbyterian Church in Saginaw, MI from 1990-2010. She attended the Trinity Korean Church in Broomfield, CO from 2011-2018 and her final church community was the Boulder Beautiful Korean Church in Boulder, CO.
Soon Jo is survived by her husband Kevin Wolff; daughter Samantha Wolff; Father Kyo Sun Kim (deceased); Mother Se Won Park; Sister Gil Ho Kim; Sister Moon Hee Kim; Brother Chung Ho Kim; Brother Deok Ho Kim; and many other loving family members.
The Wolff family would like to thank Dr. David Ross Camidge, Dr. Chad Rusthoven, and all of her medical team at the University of Colorado Anschutz Campus in Aurora, CO for the outstanding medical care that helped extend Soon Jo’s glorious life. Also, thank you to Vanessa and Gregg at Halcyon Hospice for their kind and wonderful care of Soon Jo. Lastly, we are eternally grateful to the many friends that helped support the family over the past two years. Thank you.
November is lung cancer awareness month. Every day 433 Americans die from lung cancer — enough to fill a Boeing 747.
Please help fight lung cancer by giving to the Lung Cancer Colorado Fund.
