Lamaid Mcminn

December 5, 1937 — April 18, 2020

Lamaid McMinn, age 82, of Copperas Cove passed away on Saturday, April 18, 2020. A Memorial Graveside Service will be held at 10:00 AM, Thursday, May 28, 2020, at Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery. The funeral procession will meet at Scott's Funeral Home at 9:15 on Thursday.

Lamaid was born on December 5, 1937, to the late Lian and Lamoon Moonchomgrong in Korat, Thailand. She was the third child of seven, growing up in Bangkok, Thailand. Her mother had passed away when she was only eight years old and she was trained to be a nanny. Lamaid lived with another family, a family she loved, and helped care for their children. She had two children of her own when she met Frederick McMinn. He was in the Air Force and was stationed in Thailand during the Vietnam Conflict. They later married on January 1, 1970. He retired a few years later but would continue to work government contracts. This adventure led them to live all over the world. They eventually settled in Pennsylvania, Fredericks home town. Lamaid worked as a custodian for 16 years for the Good Samaritan Hospital in Lebanon, PA. In 2006, at the request of her daughter, they moved to Copperas Cove, TX. Lamaid quickly found a job at the Copperas Cove Independent School District as a custodian and enjoyed working until her health issues got in the way.

Lamaid will be remembered as a hardworking, kind-hearted, happy go lucky person. She loved spending time with her grandchildren and her great-grandchildren. Her Buddhist faith was important to her as well.

Lamaid was preceded in death by her parents, most of her siblings and her son, Boonlard Moonchomgrong.

Lamaid is survived by her husband, Frederick McMinn; daughter, Siriporn “Kay” White and husband, John; grandchildren, Ben Foster and wife, Tanya, Elizabeth Foster Roderick and her great-grandchildren, Kiley Roderick, Easton Foster, and Layke Foster.
