Ms. Wu Xifen, 42, was named "excellent teacher" at the No. 42 Middle School, Shenyang City, Liaoning Province. She had many diseases before practicing Dafa, and completely recovered afterwards. After the persecution began, police often harassed her. One time, the police climbed up from down below and broke into her home through a window, which made her extremely frightened. Around October 2001, police and people from the Labor and Education Bureau arrested her when she was at work and took her to a brainwashing class. Her husband, who was not a practitioner, was also arrested. Suffering long-term threats and pressure, her health suffered and she showed symptoms of high blood pressure. She died on April 1, 2005.
