Funeral Notices


Kim, age 62, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her immediate family on November 10, 2020, after a courageous battle with cancer. She was a beloved and caring wife, mother, and sister, and a kind-hearted and generous friend to those who knew her. She always made those around her feel special.
Kim was born on March 22, 1958, in Okinawa, Japan and moved to Hawaii shortly after graduating from Kubasaki High School. After moving to Oahu, Kim worked at several jobs until she started her career at Hawaii Medical Service Association (HMSA), where she was a dedicated employee for nearly 30 years. At HMSA, she made forever friendships with her coworkers and became "Mom" to her second family. Kim enjoyed spending time with her family and friends. She was also an avid year-round shopper who could not pass up a sale and had fun online shopping even during her later months. Kim also enjoyed Korean dramas, arts & crafts, party planning, and decorating for every occasion, especially Christmas.
Kim will be deeply missed by her husband Landon, daughters Kisha and Kylie Chun, brother Don Swartz, and her extended family and friends. She was preceded in death by her parents, Donald and Kiyoko Swartz.
Mahalo to her doctors and nurses, the Queen’s Cancer Center,
and the staff at Malama Ola Health Services for their knowledgeable and compassionate care along this journey. The family would like to extend their sincerest appreciation to friends and family for their condolences and support.

A private service will be held at a later date.
