Nai Houn Chia July 20, 1940 - May 18, 2024

Nai Houn Chia passed away peacefully at the age of 85 surrounded by her children, grandchildren & loved ones. She was born on July 20, 1938, to Songe Chia and Hak Sien, in O’lang, Cambodia. She married Saa Yiang Tang in 1961; together, they raised 8 children. In August 1979 as refugees, she and her family immigrated to Oregon, after escaping the Killing Fields of Cambodia.

She was the guiding matriarch for her children, 16 grandchildren, and 3 great-grandchildren. She was the epitome of selflessness, always prioritizing and sacrificing for her family. She also welcomed strangers into her home and treated them as one of her own. In the Chinese and Cambodian community, she was a resource and mentor to many. She enjoyed gardening, traveling, and spending time with her family and friends.

She was preceded in death by her husband.
