Josephine “Jo” Misajon Ocampo
Josephine Misajon Ocampo, 97, passed away peacefully surrounded by three generations of family at Charity Residential Care Home in Waipahu on January 13, 2018. Josephine was born to Narciso and Elizabeth Misajon on March 10, 1920 in Halemano Camp, Waialua, Oahu. She was preceded in death by her loving husband of 51 years, Rufino Roy Ocampo; son, Robert E. Ocampo; and two daughters, Marie E. Guyer and Daryl J. Samala. Josephine was also a Gold Star Mother. Josephine was a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) and a Licensed Insurance Underwriter Manager for Pacific Union Assurance. After retiring as an LPN she regularly volunteered as a Health Educator at the Areawide Senior Citizen Program in Haleiwa. She loved to travel and took many family and friends on tours to the Philippines. Josephine had an unwavering faith in God. She was a parishioner of St. Michael's Church in Waialua, choir member for 31 years, and member of the Filipino Catholic Club. She was the founder of the Waialua Women Club Filipina. Commonly called the "Song Bird of Waialua" she sang at weddings and many other special occasions. Although an accomplished woman of many talents, Josephine's greatest gift was her unconditional love. She held a garden of love for her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great grandchildren who affectionately called her "Gaga". She would move heaven and earth for her family and conveyed her love through fond embraces, kisses, and a treasure of stories that took her family down many a trip to historic and faraway places. She was the personification of laughter and love. Friend, mother, sister, grandmother, neighbor, caregiver, coach, counselor, protector, chauffer, storyteller are only a small sample of the monikers bestowed upon her 97 years. Josephine is survived by her children, Gay Bisch-Timon, Ann (Garry) Dixon, and Paul (Yvette) Ocampo; one sister, Joyce Mia Hammett. She also doted on ten grandchildren, 20 great-grand- children, and two great-great grandchildren.
