She was born April 3, 1934 in Hanoi, Vietnam. When Vietnam split, she relocated to South Vietnam. In 1990, she moved to the United States. Her husband passed away early, and Tham worked very hard to provide for and protect her children. Due to complications of surgery thirty-five years ago, Tham became paralyzed.
She is survived by a daughter and four sons; eleven grandchildren; and six great-grandchildren.
Mahn Family Funeral Home, Rochester Chapel, is in charge of arrangements.
