Linda My Nu Thi Maya, 28, peacefully passed away on Tuesday, January 26, 2021 surrounded by her loved ones in her lrvine, CA home after a year of battling cancer.

Born on February 8, 1992 in Stockton, CA, Linda was the youngest daughter of 7 siblings from Vietnamese immigrants, Dao Tran and Doan Thi Vo. She attended Moreno Valley College achieving a multitude of associates degrees and later receiving a BA in English Creative Writing from California State University, San Bernardino.

Linda was a daughter, sister, aunt, friend, and wife, known for her bubbly and carefree personality. She was beautiful, standing at around 5′ 2″ with long, dark hair that she often dyed in shades of blonde and brunette, large brown eyes, small hands, and deep voice. Linda always expressed her love for food and had a passion for traveling around the world. Known as a social butterfly and the life of every party, she was constantly beaming with positive energy. As someone who always stood up for what she believed in, she was unafraid to speak her mind when it came to standing up for what’s right. She loved singing, hiking, going to the beach, cooking or mixing beverages, taking pictures, and always seeking opportunities for growth and self-improvement. No matter what obstacles crossed her path, she never gave up, putting her utmost effort into everything she did.

On February 26, 2020, Linda and Carlos got married as Mr. and Mrs. Maya. After being diagnosed with stomach cancer in late-January 2020, Linda chose to keep her diagnosis a secret to prevent bringing any sadness to her friends. Throughout her battle, she remained strong and fought until her very last breath with Carlos, who remained by her side “in sickness and in health.”

Linda will be survived by her loving husband and in-laws, her father and mother, brothers and sisters, and nieces and nephews. She will be remembered as the strong-willed, selfless, bubbly, adventurous, energetic, humorous, kind-hearted, outgoing and beautiful person that she was known as. Linda will always remain in our thoughts and be a constant reminder for us to always stay positive and resilient.

Linda, thank you for making a positive impact on the lives of many. Our thoughts and memories of you will be carried on and cherished. Rest peacefully to the warm rays of the sun, the scent of the salty seas, the sound of splashing waves and cawing seagulls, and the wet coolness of the ocean tides. We love you, always.

    I will always love you and cherish my memories of you, aunt Linda. I am so fortunate to have you in my life and to grow up with you as my role model. My love for traveling started with you, and I will continue to carry on with my travels with you in my thoughts. Thank you for being the biggest influence in my life and for being one of the very few who has molded me into the person that I am today. You will remain in my thoughts every day- from the little things like listening to the kpop artists that you introduced to me, or watching that movie that you keep telling me to watch because it’s your favorite, or wearing pink (I literally think of you EVERY time I see pink). Please look over me along with my dad. Rest In Peace.

    Happy birthday Auntie Linda! You would’ve probably said something like “I’m getting olddd” but you still look young and beautiful. Like you said before – you’ll get old and still be cute, just like grandma. You never lecture and you’re always joking around… I sometimes forget you’re my aunt. You’re more like a best friend or sister and that’s probably why it’s easier to talk with you. I always miss our family’s childhood days, where most of us didn’t have to work – no worries, no debts… just fun and memories. I’m still in denial that you’re officially gone.. but I know I will have to accept it one day… Thank you for always being you. You’re always so caring even when you try not to show it. You’ve worked hard to fight cancer, and now it’s your time to relax.. don’t worry about us, you’ve worried more than enough. Rest in paradise, I love you Linda 
