Alyson Shizue Kitaoka, 40

Alyson Shizue Kitaoka, 40, of Makawao, passed away on June 2, 2021 at Maui Memorial Medical Center.

She was born on October 24, 1980 in Wailuku, Maui, Hawaii.

Alyson is survived by her father, Rodney Kitaoka, sister, Jill (Steven) Ly; and nephew, Lucas Ly. She is predeceased by her mother, Mae, and brother, Casey.

Alyson was a 1998 graduate of Baldwin High School and then attended the University of Hawaii where she earned her degree in Business. “Al” moved back to Maui in 2016 and spent the last 3 years working for the County of Maui in the Real Property Division.

Al lived a life full of enthusiasm and joy. Her bubbly personality was infectious and she had the ability to make people smile. She had a spiritual love of the ocean and spent many hours at the beach, swimming and tanning in the sun. She also had a passion for baking and she would proudly share her creative treats with her family, friends and co-workers.

We will all miss Alyson but feel comforted knowing that she will be reuniting with her dear Mom, Brother, Grandparents, and her doggie, Sami. Private services to be held.
