Pyongyang, January 18 (KCNA) -- Anti-Japanese revolutionary fighter Hwang Sun Hui, deputy to the Supreme People's Assembly of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea and curator of the Korean Revolution Museum died of respiratory insufficiency due to acute pneumonia at 10:20 Friday in Juche 109 (2020) at the age of 100.

A witness of the great anti-Japanese war, Hwang Sun Hui was a veteran fighter of the first generation of the Korean revolution and a steadfast female revolutionary who dedicated her all to the accomplishment of the revolutionary cause of Juche pioneered on Mt Paektu, true to the leadership of President Kim Il Sung and Chairman Kim Jong Il.

Born into a poor peasant family in Helong-ri, Yanji County, China on May 3, 1919, Hwang took part in the Children's Corps and Young Communist League activities, and joined the Korean People's Revolutionary Army in November, 1935 where she took part in the armed struggle to wipe out the enemy Japanese imperialists and displayed an indomitable fighting spirit and peerless gallantry to defend the headquarters of the revolution at the risk of her life and bring about the great event of national liberation.

After the liberation of Korea, Hwang, working as the chairperson of the women's union in Hyesan, aroused women to the building of a new country, true to the President's line on nation-building.

Working as a chief official of the Korean Revolution Museum from February 1965 after her graduation from Kim Il Sung Higher Party School, she devoted her wisdom and enthusiasm to glorifying the eternal treasure of Juche Korea and making sure that the revolutionary spirit of Mt. Paektu dating back to the period of the anti-Japanese struggle pervaded the whole society.

She worked as an alternate member of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea from September 1961, as a member of the WPK Central Committee from October 1966 to September 2010 and as a deputy to the Supreme People's Assembly of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea from its third session in 1962.

She was awarded Kim Il Sung Order, Kim Jong Il Order, a watch bearing the august name of Kim Il Sung, a watch bearing the august name of Kim Jong Il, the title of Twice Hero of the DPRK and the title of Labor Hero and other high party and state commendations in recognition of the outstanding feats she performed for the party, revolution, country and people.

An obituary of her death was announced in the joint name of the Central Committee of the WPK, the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK and the Presidium of the Supreme People's Assembly of the DPRK on Friday.

The obituary said that though she passed away, her feats registered in the glorious history of centuries started from the anti-Japanese revolutionary struggle will shine long with the victorious advance of the revolutionary cause of Juche.

The WPK Central Committee and the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK and the Presidium of the Supreme People's Assembly of the DPRK announced that the deceased will be accorded the state funeral, and formed the State Funeral Committee with Choe Ryong Hae as chairman and 69 people including Pak Pong Ju, Kim Jae Ryong and Ri Man Gon as members.

The Funeral Committee announced that the bier of the deceased is in the Sojang Hall in Pothonggang District, Pyongyang and the callers for condolence will be allowed from 9:00 to 19:00 Saturday and that the hearse will leave the hall at 8:00 Sunday. -0-
