Sherri Mariye Nanilei Lau
August 11, 1964 – September 10, 2016

Sherri Mariye Nanilei Lau passed away unexpectedly on September 10, 2016. Mariye was very much loved by her husband, Jonathan, and daughters, Mikayla, Kayleen and Berylin. She is survived by her mother, Sarajean Tokunaga; brothers, Curt (Sandy) Tokunaga, Scott Tokunaga; father-in-law, Henry Lau (Carol deceased); brother and sister in-law, Tracy and Cynthia Takamine; nieces and nephews, Tara, Eric, Lianna, Kailey, and Maci.

After graduating from Pepperdine University, Mariye returned to Maui, making many friends while working for Wailea Development Co. and the Maui Prince Hotel. She took a break to take care of her three children, then helped manage her husband’s business – the Wailuku Dental Group –for many years.

Mariye was a gifted athlete, with a passion for tennis and golf. For over 15 years, she played on USTA adult tennis teams, winning many league and tournament awards. Competitors and teammates alike respected her talent but truly appreciated her kind, generous spirit and quirky sense of humor. She made the funniest Halloween costumes and wasn’t afraid to wear them on the court. And while she worked hard juggling work demands and being a taxi driver to three busy kids, she always made time for good friends and family.

She will be deeply and profoundly missed.  In lieu of flowers, bring your fond memories and join us in celebrating Mariye’s life on Friday, Sept. 23 at Wailuku Hongwanji. Visitation will start at 4 p.m., services at 5 p.m.
