Khuou Thi Nguyen of Mankato was called home to be with her Heavenly Father on Saturday, November 18, 2023, at the age of 92.
She was born December 2, 1930, in Ha Nam, Vietnam, and married Lai Van Nguyen on October 6, 1948. She and Lai immigrated to the US in 1993 and gradually were reunited with all their children.
Khuou loved outdoor activities, such as walking in the park and gardening in the backyard. She applied Native American techniques, using fish fertilizer to grow quality and healthy produce. Her favorite pastime was spending quality time cuddling her grandchildren. Khuou enjoyed watching the food channel on television, although she spent much time in prayer and reflection.
