Sonoko Margaret Hino: 1935-2011 Sonoko Margaret Hino, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, passed away, peacefully, at the age of 76 on July 22, 2011 in Westminster, CA. Sonoko, known to many as “Margaret”, was born to Mitsuyoshi and Aya Adachi on May 13, 1935 in Kualapuu, Molokai, Hawaii. After graduating from Molokai High School, she left her small island home to attend Brigham Young University in Provo, UT; where she majored in Science. She returned to the islands to teach intermediate school. Soon afterwards, Margaret met Theodore Teruyoshi Hino of Kaimuki, in Honolulu, HI. They were married at the historic Honolulu Mormon Tabernacle in 1959. They were sealed for time and all eternity the following year in the Laie, Hawaii Temple. Margaret retired from being a teacher after 33 years with the Los Angeles Unified School District. The majority of those years were spent teaching 8th grade Astronomy at Peary Junior High School in Gardena, CA. Travelling and seeing the world was something Margaret always dreamed of doing. She and Ted celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in 2009 with a “bucket list” trip to Prague, which included cruising down the Blue Danube. Over the years, they also traveled throughout Europe, China, Japan and many historic U.S. sites. Margaret was an active member of the Gardena 1st Ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints for almost 50 years where she served in numerous callings helping others. Margaret was well loved for her delicious cooking, baking and her quiet sense of humor. She enjoyed all types of music—especially hymns, classical and Hawaiian music! She enjoyed gardening and growing various tropical plants. Margaret loved her family, especially spending time with her grandchildren, visiting her family and old school friends in Hawaii and participating in periodic luncheon reunions with her retired teaching buddies. She was a devoted wife, humble matriarch, loyal friend, respected teacher and a faithful follower of her Savior, Jesus Christ. She was loved by all because she showed love and compassion to all, and will be dearly missed by everyone whose life she touched. Margaret is survived by her eternal companion, Ted; children Allison (Mark), Valerie (Tony) and Janeen (Marv); nine grandchildren, and one great-granddaughter; brothers Gary and Larry and sister Helen. She was preceded in death by her parents, Mitsuyoshi and Aya Adachi, sister Alice and brothers Masamitsu and Yukitaka. Her funeral service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, July 29, 2011 at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints located at 2000 W. Artesia Boulevard, Torrance, CA 90504. Internment immediately following at Green Hills Memorial Park located at 27501 S. Western Avenue, Rancho Palos Verdes, CA 90275.
