Ms. Pu Shude, 83, was from Boyu Town, Weihai City in Shandong Province. Ms. Pu obtained the Fa in 1997. After the persecution began, Pu Shude, along with her daughter Deng Aihua and daughter-in-law Wang Yun, went to Beijing in the spring of 2000 to appeal. In 2001, because they distributed Dafa flyers, Ms. Pu's daughter, Deng Aihua, and daughter-in-law, Wang Yun, were illegally sentenced to three years of forced labor. Ms. Pu Shude was extremely distraught by the arrests. She passed away in January 2001.
