My vivacious mother, Dung (Yumi) Thi Vo, 77, passed away Saturday, October 10, 2020 in Virginia Beach, Virginia surrounded by her loving daughter, Christine and friends.
Ms. Vo was born July 15, 1943 in Vietnam to Cu Van Vo and La Thi Huynh. Shortly after high school, she worked for the US Embassy & Consulate Ho Chi Minh City Hanoi where she met my late father, Thomas Wayne Nguyen. Their union brought forth 2 children, Christine and Thanh Nguyen. She enjoyed the church fellowship of Grace United Methodist Church, Millersville PA where her immediate family, including my late uncle Minh Van Vo was sponsored. Our family became US citizens in 1981. One by one, my highly spirited and exuberant mother self-sponsored other family members to the United States.
“Yumi” was eccentric and full of life. She was a single mother, with a tenacious and vibrant little girl who also grew up with her uncle Minh by her side. She retired from RCA, Burle Industries as an electric- optics specialist after 32 hard-working years. In her spare time, she loved to eat, cook and watch Vietnamese drama movies. She loved the most, strolling through the National Capital, Washington DC during the peak bloom of the cherry blossoms. How beautiful she looked in that garden.
In addition to being predeceased by her parents, “Yumi” was predeceased by her older brother Minh. Left to cherish her memory are her two children Christine Nguyen Sullenberger, Madison Kaylee Sullenberger (granddaughter) Virginia Beach, Virginia and Thanh Duc Nguyen, his wife MaiTam GiaThi and Jonathan HaoNhien Nguyen (grandson) Annandale, Virginia; And her siblings Luat Van Vo (brother) Vietnam, Hen Van Vo (brother) and his wife Khanh Ngo Vo Raleigh, North Carolina and My Thi Vo (sister) Annandale, Virginia.
A visitation will be held for family and friends from 10AM – Noon on Monday, October 19, 2020 at Altmeyer Funeral Home, 5033 Rouse Dr., Virginia Beach.
