Our beloved mother, Margie (Yasuko) Okutsu Shinn, passed away peacefully at home on May 22, 2020 at the age of 95. Margie was born on August 31, 1924 in Koloa, Kauai. She worked at the Tripler Army Medical Center until she retired in 1982. Margie was known as the orchid lady and was a member of the Pearl City Orchid Club for many years. Her other passion was dance, and she loved taking the Zumba dance classes at 24 Hour Fitness. Family was extremely important to Margie, and she is survived by her 4 children, Cynthia Shigemasa, Gary (Jung) Shinn, Gregg (Corinne) Shinn, and Allison (Randy) Shinn-Yuen; brothers Seiji Okutsu and Paul (Floy) Okutsu; 13 grandchildren; 18 great grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews. To all of her wonderful friends at Pearl City 24 Hour Fitness and the Honolulu Country Club, Mahalo for being so good to our Mom!
A private remembrance will be held at a later date and she will be laid to rest with dad, Henry (Hank) Shinn, at the Hawaii Veteran's Cemetary in Kaneohe. No Koden.
Our deepest condolences to the family and friends of the deceased
