Oak Hwa Kinnell (August 8, 1942 – March 24, 2019)

Oak Hwa Kinnell passed away peacefully in the comfort of her home with brain cancer.

As a young girl she survived the Korean War, even though being separated for a time, from her mother.

Oak loved fishing, snorkeling, camping, and world travel. She was talented at cooking, sewing, art, and gardening.

She will be dearly missed by Susan and Louis, and her loving husband Ron Kinnell.

God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be. So he put his arms around you and whispered “Come to me.”

A memorial will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Home Care & Hospice of the Valley.
