Co (“Lan”) Thi Knuckey, 82, of Renton, WA passed on December 18, 2019. She was born in Xuan-Truong, Bui Chu, Vietnam on May 10, 1937.

Lan met her beloved husband George in Vietnam, and moved to the United States in 1968. She lived in the Renton area with her family for the rest of her life.

Lan was an exceptionally passionate and caring individual who was particularly well known for the charity and help she directed to the many individuals less fortunate than herself in her native country of Vietnam. She was also wonderfully devoted to her children, grandchildren, and extended family.

Lan is survived by her husband George; her 6 children Oanh, Yung, Lan, Carol, John, and Mark; 9 grandchildren; and 4 great-grandchildren. She was dearly loved and will be truly missed by her family and those fortunate enough to have known her.

Services will be on Friday, January 10, 2020, 10:30am at St. Stephen the Martyr Church, followed by a 1:15pm Graveside Service at Tahoma National Cemetery. For details please go to
