Mary Monden, 92

Mary Shigeko Monden of Kula, Maui, passed away peacefully in her sleep on December 16, 2017. She lived a very adventure filled life before and after retiring from Kula Hospital. She traveled to foreign countries and almost every state in America. She learned hula, traditional Japanese dancing, and was an accomplished bowler and karaoke singer. She loved to eat; talk with her friends; engage in politics and laugh until she cried.

She was predeceased by her husband Robert Monden, who often said he married her because of her million dollar smile. She is survived by her son Brian (Miae) Char, daughters Linda Monden (Scott Sakakihara), Jade Monden (Audrey Malasnik), granddaughter Sarah Sakakihara, and sister Beatrice Shinjo.

The family would like to thank Dr. Loma Hassell who is not only a great doctor, but an exceptional human being; and Lorraine Espejo who was a loving & devoted angel to Mary.

Visitation will be from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, January 20, 2018 at Ballard Family Mortuary in Kahului, followed by a celebration of her life.
