Lhagvasuren Sonoo, age 69, of Hoffman Estates, passed away on January 4, 2016 in Hoffman Estates, Illinois. She was born on March 20, 1946 in Mongolia to the loving parents of Sonoo Tsagaan and Chogsomsuren Purev.
Lhagvasuren graduated from Mongolian Pedogogical University. She dedicated her life to education, and always volunteered to help her community. Lhagvasuren had a wonderful energy and was always the person who would light up the entire room. She was a strong woman who refused to give up, valiantly fighting terminal illness without faltering. In her free time, Lhagvasuren enjoyed good food and spending time with friends and family. Her favorite pastimes included playing ping-pong and volleyball with loved ones. Lhagvasuren was a devoted mother, grandmother, sister, and friend to many – she will be dearly missed.
