Hua “Susie” Thi Vu Moore 

December 10, 1944 ~ February 24 2023 

Susie passed away Friday morning surrounded by the caring staff at Chancellor Gardens in Clearfield. She had been battling dementia and other related health problems associated with the disease. She was born in Saigon, Vietnam.

As a young woman she worked on the base in Vietnam where she met Ray Yates. Ray and his wife Jan sponsored Susie and her son, Tuan to the U.S. in 1975. Their family let them become part of their family as they spent many summers in the Yates backyard grilling and watching fireworks (thanks Randy & Jill). Susie became a U.S. 

citizen which was one of her dreams but in her heart, she missed her home in Vietnam and would return every few years to visit her family. Moving and leaving everything she knew had to be tough, but she worked hard and many times had multiple jobs to ensure Tuan was taken care of.


Her last place of employment was GSC Foundries, where she worked as a machinist for 30 plus years, winning numerous awards and perfect attendance commendations. She was always helping newly arrived Vietnamese families find homes and acclimate to a new culture and life. She loved having her friends and family over to cook for everyone and make sure everyone was well fed. Susie was generous to a fault and would share anything she had. Her biggest joy in life was her granddaughter Aliyah who she loved more than anything in this world, along with her son Tuan and his wife Kimberly.


She was preceded in death by her mother and father in Vietnam as well as her brothers and sisters. She is survived in death by Tuan, Kimberly, and Aliyah; her cousins, Kim Schmidt (Larry) and Vinh Nguyen (Don) and other family members Randy, Jill and family.


The Moore family would like to thank all of the Chancellor Gardens staff, in particular Rodney, Tammy, Shauna, Autumn, Rosa and Sallie. Thank you to all the caregivers and the many others that took special care of her in the assisted living side and then the last couple years in memory care. We would also like to say a special thank you to Emily, her first nurse and then her hospice nurse Melissa. Susie had mentioned the night before her death that she was going home tomorrow and now she can rest in peace.


She will be cremated and laid to rest in Lindquist’s Memorial Gardens of the Wasatch in South Ogden. The family will have a private service. After the private service friends can visit her at Lindquist’s Memorial Gardens of the Wasatch in the Good Shepherd Garden Niche after March 11, 2023.
