Mary Uasi Obituary

Mary N. (Nuku) Uasi, a beacon of love and kindness, passed away on February 3, 2024, at home in Mishawaka, IN, surrounded by her family. She was born on the beautiful island of Ha' Utu, Tongatapu, Tonga, on October 8, 1941 before moving to the United States in 1978.

Mary's journey began as one of the cherished children of Latumatamoana Sekona Nuku and Mele Tonga Kovi (Vakasiuola) Nuku. Her spirit of generosity and care was cultivated by the values of her parents and the close-knit bond she shared with her siblings. Throughout her life, Mary blossomed into a woman who was the heart of her family, a role she embraced with ceaseless devotion.

Her loving spirit will be carried forward by her adoring husband, Taliauli Uasi, whom she married in 1978, in Chicago, IL, and their beloved daughter, Mele Moli Uasi of Mishawaka, surviving sisters, Funaki Vunipola of New Zealand, Ataile Latu of New Zealand, Amelia Manu of Tonga, and Sisilupe Fineanganofo of New Zealand. Mary was preceded by her son, Charles Eldred Uasi, as well as her parents, sisters, Mele Tupou Nuku, Finau Holani, Akesa Nuku, and brothers, Tuipulotu Nuku, Tevita Taefa Nuku, and Siosiua Pooi.

In her life, Mary found joy and fulfillment in her role as a homemaker, touching the lives of those around her with her warmth and grace. She loved her family and loved to take care of them. Her presence was a source of comfort and support within her community as she lived out the true essence of love and kindness.

Mary's memory will be treasured and kept alive in the hearts of those who knew her, and her legacy of love will continue to inspire.
