January 31, 1957 - July 25, 2021
Dawn Hirschi Nguyen, age 64 of Kearns, Utah passed away July 25, 2021 after a short battle with cancer, surrounded by her loving family. Dawn was born Jan. 31, 1957 in Brigham City, Utah, number 5 of 6 girls. She grew up in North Salt Lake City, Utah where she attended Davis County schools, graduating from Viewmont High School. Dawn worked for O.C. Tanner Company, Bard Access System (where she met Tai in 1995) and most recently was the warehouse tech in shipping and receiving at Stryker Neurovascular. She was looking forward to retirement at the end of this year. She was married to Butch (Charles DeLorne) Thomas, later divorced. She married Tai Van Nguyen May 28, 2004. Between them, they raised 5 children. Dawn loved to decorate and recently remodeled and redecorated her whole home. Fishing and football were her favorite sports. She was an avid Denver Broncos fan. One of her dreams came true when Tai took her to Denver to see the Broncos play. Tai taught Dawn how to fish and they went together often. Strawberry Reservoir was their favorite spot. When she out fished Tai, (and there were plenty of times when she did) she would say, “Daddy would be proud!” She liked to play Candy Crush, watch Wheel of Fortune and LOVED Christmas, especially the stockings. Dawn experienced some difficult challenges in her life, but she faced them with courage. She was loving and loyal to her family and friends and she would do anything for them. She always had a smile and a song in her heart. At age two, she made up her own little song. As far as we know, she was the first official streaker in the Hirschi family, running through Grandma Davis’ house with just her hightop shoes and socks. Dawn was a fighter, stubborn to her last breath.... Her passion was her family. She loved all her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren and looked forward to trips to Hawaii to visit some of them. She loved to tell her grandkids secrets, give them lots of cuddles, have sleepovers, go to the beach and always told them, “I love you to the moon and back.” Dawn is survived by her husband, Tai; sons Nick Thomas, Jeremy Thomas (Angelina Paul), and Tyler Thomas (Dari Thomas-Erickson); daughters Tiffany Thomas, Clair Nguyen (Javier Solis), Jade Nguyen (Cesar Aguilar); grandchildren Skylor, Devyn, Xavier, Breanna, Aryanna, Alina, Betty, Joanne, Lucas, Janessa, Cesar and Mateo; great grandchildren Jack, Paisley, Easton and Kaireece; sisters Delene Anderson (Joe), Eileen Fausett (Rick), Peggy Kerby (Keith), Pamala Shaw (Chris), Alison Haas (Jeff); Mother-in-law Ngoc Thi Nguyen; sisters in law Nguyet Borja (Ralph) ,Trang Nguyen and Thuy Nguyen,;. brother-in-law Dai Nguyen. Dawn was preceded in death by her parents Dellas Rulon and Barbara Davis Hirschi, father-in-law Tam Van Nguyen and brothers in law Duc Nguyen and Doung Nguyen.
