Gioi Thi Nguyen, an adoring mother, grandmother, and wife, passed away on January 21, 2024. Born in Ho Chi Minh City on January 1, 1951, Gioi was a beacon of strength, selfless love, and empathy to all who had the privilege of knowing her. She had an unwavering dedication to taking care of everyone else before herself, a testament to her nurturing spirit.
Gioi was a devoted wife to Chau Van Duong for a beautiful span of 55 years. Their love story continues to inspire their close knit family, and her legacy will be carried forward by her loving family: her husband Chau, cherished sons Anthony, David, Simon, John, and Peter, seven beloved grandchildren, and one eagerly anticipated grandchild. Gioi is also deeply missed by her three brothers and four sisters, along with a host of extended family and friends.
