Huang said his mother married when she was 17, and had raised seven children.

“She was the epitome of a traditional farming woman, not only taking care of her children but also working in the fields,” Huang Tsung-hsien said, adding that his mother had developed cataracts from a complication caused by diabetes.

Huang Tsung-hsien said the family had tried to reduce the burden on Huang Chan, but she insisted on taking care of her grandsons.

“She said that we should not have to worry about our children and should focus on our work,” Huang Tsung-hsien said, adding that his mother had dedicated her entire life to her family.
