1963 ~ 2017


Somsamay (Mye) Fahrney (Phongsivorabouth), 53, passed away peacefully on 12 July 2017 at her home, surrounded by her loving family.  Mye was born in Savannakhet, Laos on 15 July 1963.  In 1979, she moved with her family from Laos to Ontario, Canada.  Most recently Mye lived in Vientiane, Laos; Hanoi, Viet Nam; and Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Mye loved spending time with her family and she enjoyed traveling and cooking, especially baking.  She was a gifted athlete, excelling in racket sports and winning championships in badminton and pickleball.  She made friends easily and always thought of others before herself.  We miss her more than words can say.

Mye was the beloved wife of 17 years to Keith S. Fahrney and loving mother of Lianne Chang and Jessica Chang Fahrney.  She was the loving sister of Kee, Soulinthone, and Willy of Toronto.  She was preceded in death by her brother Li Gua.

A memorial for family will be held in Ontario, Canada at a later date.  In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, 1500 Rosecrans Avenue, Suite 200Manhattan Beach, CA 90266  (www.pancan.org)
