My Ngo, 59, of Shrewsbury
My grew up in a small house on the bank of the Mekong River. Several years after the Fall of Saigon, she fled the country to escape the increasingly oppressive communist regime. She survived many hardships on her journey towards a new life, eventually finding safe haven and a peaceful new home in Shrewsbury, Massachusetts. In 1984, she married Thanh Ngo and in 1985 gave birth to her daughter, Amy Ngo.
From her modest beginning in the United States, My forged a rewarding and fruitful life for herself and her family. My earned her Associate's degree from Quinsigamond Community College and worked as an interpreter at UMass Memorial Healthcare.
She dedicated herself to Buddhist study and lived mindfully and selflessly, devoting her time and energy to enriching the lives of her beloved family and friends. Her unwavering strength and enduring love for others was a constant source of inspiration for those around her. She will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her.
She leaves her daughter, Amy Ngo, and her son-in-law, Ryan McIntyre, of Seattle, Washington; Amy's father, Thanh Ngo; her sisters, Nguyen Thi Cuc, Nguyen Thi Lai, Tran Hong Nhung, and Nguyen Thuy Hang; and her brothers, Nguyen Van Ba, Nguyen Viet Hung, and Nguyen Dan.
A private Buddhist service will be held at Heald & Chiampa Funeral Directors ~ The Sumner House for the family Tuesday, Aug. 5, at 9 a.m.
