Jean Liu had been an acupuncturist in southwestern Pennsylvania for over 17 years. Her death this past Monday, August 31, 2015, was a hard blow to many in this area. She would have been 62 on October 23.
She received her doctoral education of Chinese herbal medicine at the Second Beijing Medical University. She then worked in the Kuan Jie Hospital until 1990, when she moved to the United States. Here, she worked in doctors' offices, and then her own Chinese Acupuncture Center in Greensburg, PA, where she was for 17 years. She was a devout Christian and lovely singer, singing in a Chinese choral group.
She leaves behind her husband, Mark; her son, Jack; daughter-in-law, Erin; granddaughter, Zinnia; three sisters; and a score of loyal, grateful patients. Truly, she was a pioneer of acupuncture in this country. She was, for many, the first thought when mentioning acupuncture in southwestern Pennsylvania. She probably will remain so for many years.
I am honored to have known her, to have gained her trust and mutual respect. Jean, you will be missed here. Greatly. But you will be a part of every treatment rendered in the office you left behind.
