Hazel Su Chou Li, who spent the last 13 years of her life working for her son at his publishing company — Peter Li Inc. — in Dayton, Ohio, died April 11 at Sycamore Hospital in Miamisburg, Ohio. She was 92.

Mrs. Li was born Dec. 12, 1912, in what is now Beijing. In 1931, she and her older sister Louise were awarded scholarships to attend Rosary College in Chicago. She returned to China after graduating in 1935.

In 1937, she married Norman Chung Li, whom she met while both attended college in the United States. He died in 1990.

As a converted Catholic for more than 70 years, Mrs. Li had a deep devotion to her religion and regularly attended daily Mass.

She was cremated in Dayton on April 14, and her remains were scattered into the Potomac River.

She is survived by three sons, Peter Li of Dayton, Paul Li of Tucson, Ariz., and John Li of Potomac; two daughters, Mary Li Basso of San Sebastopol, Calif., and Eunice Li Jones of North Lynnfield, Mass.; nine grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren.

A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. May 6 at St. Raphael Catholic Church in Rockville.
