Lomay Buck was born in China and married Dr. John Lossing Buck in China in 1941. She came to the United States with Dr. Buck and their newborn daughter, Rosalind, in 1944. Mrs. Buck was the first Chinese to enter the United States after the repeal of the Chinese Exclusion Act. Their son was born in New York City.

The Bucks lived in Washington, DC, then in Rome, Italy, before settling on the Buck family farm in Freedom Plains-Pleasant Valley, New York, following Dr. Buck's retirement from the FAO of the UN. They later moved to Poughkeepsie, New York.

Lomay was a Chinese watercolor artist, painting flowers and birds. She was a member of the China Institute in America (NYC) and many local associations including Vassar Brothers Hospital Women's Auxiliary, Day Nursery, Children's Home and Women's City and County Club.

Lomay is survived by her daughter, son, and two grandchildren.
