TINA LEIMOMI MARAGOS

Posted On May 13th, 2018 -

TINA LEIMOMI MARAGOSTina passed away quietly in the early morning of Friday, March 23, 2018. She fought and endured a courageous ten year battle with breast cancer. To all she touched, she was a remarkable person. Born Tina Leimomi Ing on July 24, 1948, she is survived by her daughter, Tehani Meleomakani Ing, her granddaughter, Kealaulakohea Leimomi Gomez, her sister, Sandra Lanakila Peterman, and her brothers, Douglas Keauhou Ing and Darrell Mokulele Ing. Tina was a graduate of Kamehameha Schools, class of 1966, and the University of Hawaii. She had a long career in sales, and later in specialty advertising products with her partner for several decades, John Held. Tina was the family's ultimate caregiver and helper, particularly for our mother and dear old Aunt May Ing. Certainly there were others she cared for including our nieces, cousins, and many pets. She was loved, admired, and respected by many beyond her family, but especially her classmates. Her cheerful, positive demeanor will be missed, but certainly remembered by the many who knew her, as family, as a friend, as a classmate or as their service provider. A celebration of life service will be held at the Bernice Pauahi Bishop Memorial Chapel on the campus of Kamehameha Schools, Kapalama on Saturday, May 19, 2018 with visitation from 9:00 a.m. and services at 10:00 a.m. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions be made in her honor to Susan G. Koman, a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization and/or to Team IMUA 66 at www.relayforlife.org/kamehameha. Arrangements Provided By: Ultimate Cremation Services LLC
