Jin Hui Noud

September 14, 1950July 30, 2019

Jin Hui Noud (nee Son), age 70, passed away peacefully at her home, surrounded by family on July 30, 2019, following a courageous battle with cancer.

She was a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend who will be missed by all whose lives she touched. Family and friends were extremely important to her and she had a unique gift for lifting people’s spirits. Her family, friends and colleagues would say Jin Hui was beautiful, smart, strong, kind, witty, and opinionated.

A 45 year resident of Okemos, Jin Hui was born and raised in Seoul, South Korea. She came to the United States in 1971, after marrying John Noud, an army JAGC. She worked hard to learn English, became an American citizen, and eventually got very involved in the political process.

As her boys grew and became more independent, Jin Hui found her niche, becoming a top selling realtor and associate broker in the Okemos and East Lansing area. Real estate never felt like a job to Jin Hui, as she loved the people and the profession, and in fact, continued selling houses until a few weeks before she passed. She also became a mentor to several young, up and coming realtors. She was dedicated to her clients, many of whom became lifelong friends.

Jin Hui was passionate about her hobbies. She was an excellent athlete and a very competitive tennis player. For many years she played USTA travel team tennis where she formed many lasting friendships.

She shared her culinary expertise with friends, heading up several Korean cooking adventures. Her extended family enjoyed her cooking, especially on holidays, and her sons have become accomplished cooks. She especially loved entertaining friends and family with good food and fine wine. Her family, friends, and clients were beneficiaries of her amazing fashion sense and unique interior design skills.

Jin Hui is survived by her beloved husband, John; three sons, Tom Noud, Michael Noud, and Patrick (Erika) Noud; two grandchildren, Tatum and Harper; and sisters, Soon Ok Gulish (Grand Rapids), Unsook Son (South Korea), and many extended family members.

The family would like to extend special thanks to Sparrow Hospice.

A gathering to celebrate Jin Hui’s life will be held on Sept. 14, 2019 from 12-2 p.m. at the University Club, 3435 Forest Rd., Lansing.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in Jin Hui’s name can be made online to the Refugee Development Center https://refugeedevelopmentcenter.org/volunteer/donate/ or checks can be mailed to the office at: Refugee Development Center, 600 W. Maple St. Suite A, Lansing, MI 48906

Jin Hui was such a beautiful loving soul. Over 20 years ago she helped my husband (Gio) and I purchase our first home then our next one too. I can still hear her voice. “Oh no that is not a good one for you.” The three of us had so much fun exploring homes and dreaming about their potential. I can’t look at a home without wondering what would Jin Hui think about this.
Jin Hui became well known to even my neighbors , family and friends. I am so grateful I knew her. Her presence will be so missed but her legacy of love and joy is imprinted on myself and so many other lives she touched.

When my husband and I moved to Okemos many, many decades ago, Jin Hui was our realtor. She soon became a friend. We have now been retired up north for many years and while I was looking to see how I could contact Jin Hui, I was stunned to read she had died. She was such a special person - there are no words to fully describe her. Her zest for life and love of family was remarkable. I have so many wonderful memories of time spent with her. May she now rest in perfect peace.

My heart is with the Noud family as you celebrate the life of Jin Hui. I grew up in Riverwood. Jin Hui was the most beautiful, charming and engaging neighbor. It was a special treat to see her and share a little time with her. She always made you feel valued and special. All my love and deepest sympathies. Thank you for sharing her with all of us.
