Aiping Wu

Obituary of Aiping Wu

Aiping “Amy” Wu, aged 57, passed peacefully in her sleep on November 30, 2021 at ChristianaCare Hospital in Delaware after a ten year battle with breast cancer. She was born and raised in Hengyang, Hunan Province in China. She went to Changsha for technical school where she met her future husband at the age of 14. Together they went to Jingdezhen Ceramic College where they each majored in production ceramics. Later Aiping went on to graduate school in South China University of Technology after she married Xiaoming Gao. She excelled in her studies and was always in the top 1% of her class from elementary school to grad school.

In 1992, Aiping was accepted to study analytical chemistry at West Kentucky University. Aiping lived across the United States, from her start in Kentucky to Tennessee, Mississippi, San Diego, New York City, New Jersey, Philadelphia, and ultimately Delaware where she spent the last two years of her life.

Aiping was endlessly passionate about her volunteer work for Falun Dafa, her spiritual meditation practice which has been banned in China since 1999. Her commitment to raising awareness of the persecution led her into various creative fields, including the performing arts, media and marketing.

She will be remembered for her selflessness, indomitable spirit, voracious appetite, love of natural beauty, and her ability to face the obstacles of her life with grace and dignity.

Aiping is survived by her husband of 34 years, Xiaoming Gao, her daughter, Cayla Gao (who shares her passion for food), her sister, Jianping Wu, and her brother, Weiping Wu. Funeral services and the burial in Rural Valley Cemetery in New York will remain private. However, the funeral service will be Livestreamed on Sun, December 5, at 10:00AM.
