Obituary

Mijoaja Youn, of Beachwood, died peacefully in her home after a courageous battle with cancer. Mijoaja was surrounded by her loving family on February 13, 2020. Of Korean ethnicity, Mijoaja was born in Nagoya, Japan and moved to South Korea shortly after. After living in South Korea for a number of years, she and her family made a life-changing decision where they immigrated to the United States with help from her sister Chun and her husband Robert. She entered the United States in 1974 where she settled in Ocean County for many years. Having a difficult first name to pronounce by her friends and co-workers, Mijoaja (Mee jah jah) was known by her American name Linda. Mijoaja was employed for many years with companies such as Inco in Lakewood and Heyco in Toms River before retiring. Mijoaja had a serious passion for gardening as she loved to grow different kinds of produce and flowers. She was an avid collector of plants and loved caring for them each and every day. Mijoaja enjoyed reading and learning all about her South Korean roots. She was always fascinated upon different types of architectures starting with a “Wow!” and finishing up with “How did they make that?”. She was an incredible woman, a loving mother, a kindhearted sister, caring aunt and a devoted grandmother. Mijoaja had a lot of words of wisdom for her family, with one particular saying she would stress was “It’s not how much money you make, it’s how you spend it”.


Surviving are her husband James S.; two sons, James and George and his wife Deonna; three grandchildren, Justin, Jasmine, and Jaiden; sister Chun with her children Alena and Ray; brother John with his children Tony and Mimi; brother Yun N. and his wife Ann with their son Tommy; brother Jack and his wife Susan J. with their children Henry and Jennifer. Mijoaja’s family tree also includes countless number of extended family in the United States and South Korea.


Visiting hours will be Tuesday, Feb. 18th, from 11am to 1pm at the Mastapeter Memorial Home, 270 Atlantic City Blvd., Bayville. A Prayer Service will be offered at 1pm in the funeral home. The burial will follow to Whiting Memorial Park, Whiting.
