Thoa is simply known by the “kids” as Ba (grandma). She exemplified all the characteristics of that greatest generation: strength, perseverance, discipline, courage, hope, faith and love.

Ba made everyone around her better and stronger through her smile, care, love and life.
Thoa is survived by her husband, Toan Van Nguyen; children, Sang, Kieu-Suong, Tuyen, Tung, Ton, Tuong, Trong and Thu-Suong; 19 grandchildren; and six great-grandchildren.
