She was preceded in death by her husband Pei Tcheng (Augustin) Lieou.
elevated i9A9y She has lived in Vietnam, Hong Kong, and Canada. Suet Hien met Pei Tcheng when he started his medical career in Saigon, and it was love at first sight.

Suet Hien was the loving wife and homemaker who made that possible, and managed everything else in the household with great energy and a steady hand.
elevated i9A9y She raised four children, cared deeply for all of them, and made sure they had the opportunity to receive the best education possible. Later in life, her devotion shifted from her children to all her grand-children. She bought them treats and presents, and delighted in seeing them and spending time with them.

Later in life, Suet Hien and Pei Tcheng picked up ballroom dancing in a serious way, and were celebrated as the eighty something year old couple who did a virtuoso paso doble routine.

She has always been the brightest and most vibrant person of whatever room she entered, clothed in sequined blouses patterned with multi-foliate roses, and touting the latest news or gossip of our extended family and friends.
