With profound sadness we announce the passing of Thúy Phùng (Tina Phung), our loving and devoted mother and friend to all whose lives she touched, on June 20, 2022. She left us while sleeping peacefully at her residence in Des Moines, Iowa. She was in her 65th year.
In 1976, she met her loving husband Gioi Bui. Together, they built their own small family. In the early days, the young couple struggled financially but that didn’t discourage them. Thúy learned many skills with a dream to start her own business. In 1990, her husband and she opened a shop to fix jewelry. She worked tirelessly to raise 4 boys.

In 1998, Thúy and her family immigrated to Des Moines, Iowa. Yet again, Thúy had to start her life from scratch. Living in a new country and not knowing English, Thúy couldn’t continue her jewelry shop. Her first job in America was working for Pizza Hut, then for the next 20 years she worked for Andersen Windows.

Thúy was known for her cooking. She liked to cook for others as she often baked for her friends and family. But once she learned a new recipe expect to eat it for the next 3 months as she tries to perfect it. Thúy also likes to shop as she called it her stress reliever. If you can’t find her at home, expect to find her at the local grocery stores and shopping mall. But it was her kindness that many people will remember her for. Thúy treated everyone with kindness and respect.

Her greatest pride and happiness is spending time with her family and grandchildren. She wants them to know she is very proud and loves them very much. As she often said, “Love you to the moon and back.”

No donations please.
