Obituary for Ruth Correa

Ruth Correa, 80, of Wailuku, passed away on March 10, 2018 in Wailuku. She was born on October 27, 1937 in Puunene, Maui.

Visitation will be from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, March 24, 2018 at Ballard Family Mortuary in Kahului, with service starting at 5 p.m.

What brought joy to Ruth was cooking for her family. Her best of times included the food and laughter shared when her children, grandchildren and their friends gathered as one loud and hungry ohana.

Ruth fondly recalls the many keiki and their families for whom she cared while working at Wailuku Hongwanji Preschool.

“Ruthie” enjoyed talking story, shopping, meeting up with her friends at Longs, excursions to Hana and Lahaina, Ululani shave ice and Tiffany’s chow fun. Her grandchildren were her true joy and purpose. We will miss Ruth’s giving and nurturing spirit.

She is survived by her husband of 58 years, Milton E. Correa; sons, Ryan R. Correa, Kevyn F. Correa; daughters, Linda C. Lewis (Rob), and Lisa L. Correa; siblings, Gilbert “Butch” (Thelma, pre-deceased) Nakashima, Glen (Joanne) Nakashima, Brady (pre-deceased) (Corrine) Nakashima, Brian (Lynette) Nakashima, Richie (Ona) Nakashima, and Evelyn “Miko” (Elwyn) Mukogawa; also 7 grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews.

She is pre-deceased by both parents, Masamitsu and Haruko Nakashima.
