Obituary for Ny Ou
August 4, 1935 – December 9, 2017
Ny Ou, of Cornwall, NY entered into eternal rest on December 9, 2017 at St. Luke’s Cornwall Hospital, Newburgh, NY. She was 82 years old.
The daughter of the late Kun Suon and Leang (Kim) Suon, Ny was born on August 4, 1935 in Kandal, Cambodia.
Ny was a courageous and compassionate mother, foster-mother, wife, grandmother and child of God. Beloved by her family, Mommy Ung kept her family together, even in the midst of war-torn Cambodia, willing to sacrifice her own life for her children. Her compassion drove her to adopt more children who lost their families during the genocide. By the grace of God, the Ung family had the opportunity to move to the United States where the language, customs and culture were all foreign. In spite of that, Mommy Ung worked tirelessly to provide for her family and continually called her children to strive for excellence, reminding them of their true identity. Throughout her life and particularly towards the end of her life, her love of listening to God’s Word and Khmer Christian hymns were what brought her great joy and peace. We thank God for the life that He gave her, reflecting grace, dignity, compassion and generosity for so many under her care.
Ny is survived by her children: Giullaume, PoHai, Yvonne, PoHeng, Robert (PoHort), Malise, PoSan, and Pochea; nineteen grandchildren; 4 great-grandchildren; and her brother: Kun Taing Suon.
