Mary Guo Hawaii – Death – Dead: Mary Guo Obituary, Cause of Death
It is with a heavy heart and sadness that I inform you that Mary Guo, one of our graduate students in our Doctor of Nursing Practice program, died this past Sunday, July 26. The Honolulu Police Department arrested a suspect and opened a murder investigation in what appears to be a case of relationship violence.
Mary was a stellar student and researcher. She was a graduate of Roosevelt High School and UC Berkeley, where she double majored in Integrative Biology and Chinese. She then earned a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and a Masters in Public Health, both at UH Mānoa. Mary aspired to be someone who would be a force for good in our community and was considered to be a rising star in Hawaiʻi’s healthcare industry.
Her death is a loss for our campus community and Hawaiʻi.
For the family and friends of Mary, I find myself grasping for the right words to offer comfort and to understand a dark situation. I hope that there will be peace after this pain and that there will be justice. I know that those who knew and loved Mary will remember all of the good she brought into their and others’ lives and that they will keep her memory close to their hearts. We are planning to honor her memory by establishing a memorial scholarship fund in her name.
Circumstances surrounding her death is yet to be revealed. We will update you as soon as we have more information about her death.
