Mrs. Soumy C. Pao ~ ISB Librarian ~ 1957-1976

Departed ~ 27 September 2013



It is with regret that I announce the passing of my beloved mother, SOUMY C PAO on Friday 27 September 2013 at 11:10 am in Samitivej Hospital , Bangkok, Thailand. She passed away peacefully in her sleep and is now with my father enjoying the lfe after.

Soumy C Pao was a woman loved by all who came across her and had the privilege of knowing her, from her days as a UN diplomat’s wife until her days as Head Librarian of International School Bangkok. We all loved her elegant and gracious hospitality to everyone in need.

As her son and speaking for the rest of my family ( brothers Larry, Samson, and sister Patty )…we loved her very much, and cherish the time we had with her. She has passed living a full life at 92 years of age…and with a large family of grandsons and granddaughters she enjoyed the holidays to the fullest.

I wish her happiness in her new afterlife, especially adjoining with my father, Gerson who passed away on 10 April , 2009 and may their spirit be together for eternal life.

Funeral services will be at Wat Tha Tong starting Wednesday 2 Oct – Friday 4 Oct starting at 7:00 pm each night. My mother will be cremated on Saturday 5 October…and her ashes put out to sea on Sunday 6 October.
