Oma also had a profound love for the holidays. Halloween and Christmas were two of her favorites. She took great pride in decorating the entire house so everyone would enjoy the seasons to the fullest. There was always room for more decorations in her home and no space was left untouched by the things that Oma loved. Too much was never enough for the holidays.
Oma’s greatest loves, as well as the source of her greatest joy, were her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. She is survived by her 5 children: sons Peter, Henry (Mary), Michael, and daughters Judy (George) Vinluan and Caroline (Seth) McKinney; 12 grandchildren: Scott and Cory Chun, Ryan, Kevin and Kurt Vinluan, Janelle Hamada, Jennifer and Aaron Chun, Summer Chun, Jason Endo-Chun, Todd and Emma McKinney; 9 great grandchildren: Cayla Chun, Kawika Chun, Maia, Keola, Kenji, Kelsen and Kendall Chun, Jacob and Matthew Hamada.
