A well-known and respected pharmacist who died in July is remembered for calling Bucks County home after immigrating from South Korea. Gary Miles wrote about the fascinating life of Mina Wagman in The Philadelphia Investigator.

Wagman moved to the United States from Seoul, South Korea when she was a teenager. Moving to the Philadelphia area, Wagman attended Harry S. Truman High School in Levittown while working in his family’s grocery store. She then continued her studies at Temple University, where she obtained a degree in pharmacy.

Known for her determination and positive attitude, Wagman was well-liked by all who met her.

“She was unlike anyone I had known before,” said her husband Joel Wagman. “I immediately felt comfortable with her.”

She resided in New Hampshire and Villanova for many years while raising her family and pursuing a successful career as a pharmacist. In her spare time, she had a passion for golf and traveling to other countries.

Even in her illness, Wagman showed the same positivity and tenacity that she showed throughout her life.
