Nu My Pham, 75, of Fayetteville, NC peacefully went home to be with the Lord on October 13, 2020.
Nu and her husband, Huyen came to the United States in April of 1975 from Saigon, South Vietnam and worked tirelessly to create a new life and an environment of unlimited opportunities for their children. Together, they opened Carolina Shoe Repair on Person St. but are most remembered as the owners of Hay Street Shoe Shop where Huyen mastered the art of cobbling and Nu greeted customers for nearly 40 years.
It has been said that while Huyen repaired shoes for the patrons, Nu tended to their ‘soles’. Never one to hesitate to speak the word of God and pray with anyone anywhere, she touched the hearts of many throughout the community with her unwavering faith and genuine compassion for everyone from all walks of life without prejudice or judgement. Her greatest passion was to share the love of Christ with everyone she knew or to the stranger she just met. She loved to read the Bible, work in her beautiful garden and dote on her grandchildren. Heaven is rejoicing at her presence.
“Well done, thou good and faithful servant” – Matthew 25:21
