Chin Sun Pinto (Kim) of Hayes, died peacefully on Dec. 25, 2017.

She recently moved to Virginia from California to spend her remaining days with family, and was thankfully surrounded by love when she passed away.

She is survived by her two children, Louis F. Pinto III and Tracy A. Pinto; grandchildren, Jaykeb, Justin, Anya, Marcus; her brother and two elder sisters; also survived by Louis F. Pinto II, her children’s father. 

Chin was born on May 21, 1947 in South Jeolla, a small rural town outside of Seoul, Korea. She moved to the United States in 1971 and became a U.S. citizen in 1981. Her two children were the pride and joy of her life.  Chin loved her family and friends, and enjoyed to show that love with her delicious and abundant cooking.  If you were in her heart, she was sure to stuff your belly bigger than you thought possible.  

She will be lovingly remembered as a thoughtful, giving, strong-willed, and independent soul.
