May 27, 2023. Somkhoun Chhung. 77, of Lowell MA passed away peacefully at home with her loving family by her side.


Born October 6th, 1945 in Battambang, Cambodia, she was the second youngest of four siblings. In 1981, she bravely immigrated to the United States with her children as a single mother and later met her husband David Pat in 1983 whom she spent over 40 years with. She and her husband became U.S. citizens in 2007.

Somkhoun was strong willed and fearless, had an enormous heart and a sharp sense of humor. She was generous, loyal, and brave. She was clever and full to the brim with knowledge gained through all of her life experiences.

She was a member of Trairatanaram Buddhist Temple of North Chelmsford, MA. Somkhoun was loved and respected by her many friends and always enjoyed being with them especially for their card games on the weekends. The thing she enjoyed most in life was spending time with her grandchildren. She had a large impact on their lives and loved caring for them. Some of the other things that she enjoyed were gardening, cooking, shopping for bargains, and always dressing nice no matter the occasion.

Somkhoun was the strong matriarch of her family who always made sure her family was taken care of. She will be remembered for all the love she shared with her family. She truly loved each and everyone one of them. Throughout life, she carried herself with dignity, strength, courage, elegance, and full of love for her family and friends. She will be missed dearly.
