Maria Binh Thi Vu

It is with deep sorrow and much love that we mourn the passing of our beloved mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother Maria Binh Thi Vu of Newport News on Sunday, January 30, 2022 at the age of 85. She was born in Hai Duong, Vietnam, and had been a resident of Newport News since 1985. Mrs. Vu was a member of St. Jerome Catholic church.

Tran, Mrs. Vu’s son in law Robert L. Theodore, Mai P. Tran and her husband Tom Tatman, An Tran; seven grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; sister Nhan Thi Vu; and brother, Thai Ngoc Vu.

    Mai and family,
    Your mom lives inside each of you. Cherish all the memories you had with her. May you find comfort in God’s Word. And may He give you peace. “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.”
    ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭147:3‬ ‭
