Flo was married to Joseph Kazuhiko Okamoto (deceased).

(Howard) Umehira, sister Gladys (Thomas) Blondin and brother Natsuo (Joan) Anbe, and grandchildren Jennifer Hoskinson, Kerri (Ryan) Narasaki, Todd (Tiffany) Umehira, Jodie (Brian) Brennan, and 7 great-grandchildren.

We will miss her presence in our lives and will try to carry on her legacy of being kind to everyone we meet.

Service will be held at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, August 20, 2014 at Nakamura Mortuary. Burial will be 2 p.m. at Maui Memorial Park. Casual Hawaiian Attire, please.
