They spent time with their four grandkids, as well. Shina enjoyed going to watch her grandson golf with the New Palestine High School team, and Joe, who worked nights, made sure to be available to help his grandkids by day.
Joe worked 37 years on an assembly line for Ford Motor Company, retiring in 2007 when the east-side factory shuttered. Retirement gradually meant less bowling and more trips to the gym, but he didn’t stop working, taking a job with a security company.
They raised their kids to work hard, too, Jones said.
Abraham described her mother as feisty, always saying it the way it was. Her motto was, “If your mom can’t tell you, who can?” Abraham said with a laugh.
Shina showed her children hard work by example, working as a waitress at Heidelberg Haus, a German cafe and bakery on Pendleton Pike, and owning a wig shop in Brightwood Plaza at 25th Street and Sherman Drive.
That doesn’t mean there was no time for fun. It seemed they knew someone everywhere they went, Jones said.
Joe loved the camaraderie of being with his friends from the bowling alley or work.
Shina had friends from the Korean community she contributed so much to. “She probably knew every Korean that walked in Indianapolis and the surrounding areas,” Abraham said.
Together, they meant so much to so many people.
“Indianapolis is a big city but a small town,” she said. “They touched so many people’s lives.”
Joe contracted the virus first. His daughters believe he caught it while working for the security company, where he regularly interacted with people from out of state.
