In loving memory of Lan Thi Rawls
Fund Type: Memorial DonationsAhoskie, NC
Fundraiser ends on March 28, 2023
Lan Thi Rawls passed away on Monday, February 20, 2023 in Aulander, NC. She was born on February 7, 1943 in Vietnam to her father, Nguyễn Văn Viêm and mother, Dương Thị Vẻ. In 1975, she emigrated to the United States at the end of the Vietnam War and settled in Aulander after meeting her husband, Robert McCoy Rawls. She and Robert welcomed their daughter, Cathy in June 1976. In 1982, their family grew as Lan’s three daughters, Nancy, Amanda, and Frances, from a previous marriage were finally reunited after years of separation due to the war.
Many remember Lan working in her flower garden, something that brought her much joy and comfort. If she wasn’t in the garden, she would be working on house repairs, painting, or climbing on top of the roof to lay tar.
She also loved sewing, which can be seen in all the beautiful things she hand-made, from curtains to bedding to Christmas stockings.
To know Lan, was to love her. She was a person that touched so many people’s hearts, whether it was through a fun conversation or bringing food to a neighbor. When she got to a point in which she couldn’t visit others anymore, she ALWAYS made sure that whoever came by the house for a visit that they left with a Mountain Dew and some cookies. That is who she was. Her whole life was devoted to her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She did her best to build a foundation in which all her family knew how much she loved them.
