Van Thi Dinh
April 8, 1943 ~ September 3, 2023 (age 80) 80 Years Old
Be the first to offer your condolences on Van's Tribute Wall
With deep sadness and sorrow the Vuong and Dinh families share the passing of Van Thi Dinh at 80 years old. Van was a beloved daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother and friend.
Born in Hanoi, Vietnam in 1943, Van fled Vietnam in 1975 with 4 kids in tow to establish a better life for her family in the U.S. Once in America, Van and her husband, An, worked tirelessly to create roots in a new country and provide opportunity for herself and their children (and grandchildren). She always prioritized her kids needs well above her own. This included working two jobs at the same time so they could purchase a home of their own in Woodinville, Washington. And even to her last days, she was often preparing meals for us to make sure we were never hungry and our bellies were full.
She retired from Safeco and enjoyed travelling, gardening and spending time with family. Her garden brought her joy and her yard always flourished with vibrant blooms of roses, dahlias and hydrangeas. We will also always have memories of two beautiful Japanese pear trees that the grandkids loved to pick in the summer.
Van was survived by her four children: Huy Dac Vuong, Thuy-Linh Kim Vuong, Quynh-Ngan Dinh Vuong and Ngoc-Bich Kim Vuong. Van also leaves a legacy of nine adoring grandchildren Alexa, Kenji, Khai, Emi, Kandace, Kaden, Kaila, Keira and Lucas. Her grandkids would describe their “Ba” as the kindest and gentlest person. This is true with the exception of when she would play Yahtzee or Qwirkle, and her competitiveness would come through.
Please join us in remembering Van as we lay her to rest at Mt. Olivet Cemetery (100 Blaine Ave NE, Renton, Washington). Services will be held on October 22, noon-2pm. Floral arrangements can be delivered to the Cemetery at 11am on October 22nd.
