Giene Van Lem

Giene Lemvan left us on March 13, 2019 with his family by his side at Iowa Methodist Medical Center.

Giene Lemvan was born on July 25, 1929 in Muang Sai, Vietnam to Chom Lemvan (father) and Banh Lothi (mother). He then married La Cathi. He is survived by his wife, La and by their children: Kiet Lovan (Ly Ba), Chan Lemthi (Lamphone), Inh Lothi (Song), Nancy Lovan (Som), Deng Lemvan, Huong Lemvan (Ba), Toi Baccam (Say), Senglao Lemthi (Sak), and Hac Lemvan; 24 grandchildren; and 13 great-grandchildren.

He enjoyed spending time with family and friends, listening to music, gardening, and drinking. He looked forward to birthdays and holidays as they were spent with the people he loved most.

We will miss your welcoming smile, contagious laugh, and the love you’ve always shown your family. We will continue to take a drink for you.
