Posted On February 9th, 2011 -

In Loving Memory SHIRLEY MOO HIN LUM WONG April 22, 1938 – January 16, 2011 Shirley Moo Hin Lum Wong was called home by our heavenly Father on January 16, 2011, at the age of 72. She was preceded in death by her husband Gilbert Kwock Hing Wong. We celebrate her passing with added joy as Shirley was re-united with Gilbert on their 46th Wedding Anniversary, January 16, 2011 – “Happy Anniversary!” Shirley was the only child of Lum Man Sing and Yee Moy Lee. Her memory will live forever in the hearts of her children, Lee-Ann Choy, Sue-Ann (Daryl) Yasuoka, Dudley (Lin), and Sherman (Deanna); grandchildren, Nicole Choy, Jadelyn and Brenton Yasuoka, Mitchell Wong, and Zoe Wong. Shirley enjoyed gardening, traveling, Korean soap opera, shopping, and enjoying watching her children and grandchildren in their activities – lion dance, marching band, volleyball, basketball, going to the movies and enjoying lunch with her friends. Born and raised by Chinese immigrant parents, Shirley embraced all cultures – Korean soap operas was a daily staple; her best friend was Filipino; she loved to walk the Shirokiya food section, and her last outing was to the Japanese New Year festivities in Moilili. Her life was one of service to others always volunteering, and chairing committees and organizing events – Sacred Heart’s Class of ’56 annual reunions, the PTAs of Maemae Elementary, Kawananakoa Intermediate, Roosevelt, Iolani and St. Louis High School, St. Stephen’s Church, Chinese Physical Culture Association, and the community. A graduate of Sacred Hearts Academy, Class of ’56, the University of Hawaii and City College of San Francisco, Shirley retired after 36 years with Hawaiian Electric Company as a payroll clerk. Retirement allowed Shirley to go on weekly movie outings, monthly lunch dates, travel, and enjoy her grandchildren – play basketball and chess, perform on stage and express themselves in art shows. Fortitude, Faith, Family – these words best describe our Mom, Grandmother, Sister-in-law, Aunty, and Friend, Shirley Lum Wong.
