Miriam Chun Noh
MIRIAM CHUN NOH Miriam Chun Noh peacefully passed away in Honolulu on August 16. Survived by three sons, Howard, David and Raymond and a sister, Mary Chun Lee. She was born in Honolulu on November 6, 1924. The daughter of a Korean immigrant plantation worker and his picture bride, she was the second of five children. Educated at Roosevelt High School, she worked for the local government before marrying the late Edwin Cha Son Noh. Together, they owned and operated a variety of businesses from pet shop, grocery store, several Waikiki hotels to the first formal Korean restaurant in the islands, Arirang which opened in 1961. The real triumph of this brilliant, tireless woman was the founding of Noh Foods International of Hawaii in 1963 with Edwin. Today, this company is globally- known for manufacturing and distributing a wide variety of seasoning mixes, sauces and drinks. In addition, at the age of 70, she established the dry- cleaner and laundromat complex, Launderland, on Beretania Street; still operating today. Rest in peace, Mom - your magnificent work is done at last. Graveside service on Saturday - September 5th. Diamond Head Memorial @ 10:30 am.
Our deepest condolences to the family and friends of the deceased
