Obituary

Warren Chien-Nan Chen

October 13, 1940 - February 21, 2022

Warren Chien-Nan Chen, age 81 of Northbrook, Illinois went home to be with the Lord on Monday, February 21, 2022. He was born on October 13, 1940 in Tainan, Taiwan to Tzu-Hsi Chen and Lan Hong. He grew up in a large family as one of 10 children. Educated in Taiwan he immigrated to the United States to work on his master’s degree in statistics at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. While at the university he met and married his wife Theresa Chueh Chen on August 9, 1969 and they relocated to Chicago to start their family. Warren spent most of his career working as a computer programmer at Standard Oil Company. His faith journey with Jesus Christ began during his studies at the university. Together with Theresa, their faith grew and they went on to be one of the founding families of the Evangelical Taiwan Church in Metro Chicago, currently renamed Evangelical Trinity Church. Warren enjoyed walks at the Botanic Gardens, singing, playing the trumpet, and spending time with his 9 grandchildren.    

We praise God that Warren is now reunited with his beloved wife Theresa in heaven. He is survived by his children; Justin (Judy) Chen of Buffalo Grove, Michelle (Alexander) Chu of Green Oaks and Milton (Hilary) Chen of Deer Park, grandchildren; Jenna, Aaron and Clara Chen, Kristin, Josiah and Celina Chu; Mairen, Curtis and Emery Chen.
