Mabel Wang (nee Chen), 22 July 1924 – 12 May 2017, passed away peacefully at Cabrini Hospital Malvern, Victoria.

The Chen family has been an active family in Melbourne’s Chinatown since the 1930s in commerce, community and local politics. With her husband, Councillor David Wang, Mabel was a great contributor to the City of Melbourne in the late 1900s.

Mabel was one of the founders of the Melbourne Dai Loong Association and was instrumental in raising funds for the commissioning and purchase of Melbourne Dai Loong (Big Dragon) in 1978, which was the first processional dragon made in China for 30 years. Along with other dragons, Melbourne Dai Loong appears in the Dragon Gallery at the Museum.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Mabel Wang Memorial Fund that will establish a Chinese Museum Education Program teaching children about Chinese Dragons.
