Carolyn Hinckley, Rest in Peace
We are saddened to learn that Carolyn Hinckley died earlier this morning. Carolyn was a special part of the O.S.K.A., volunteering as a counselor at the Youth Leadership Super Camp and as an assistant instructor in various classes in the Kalamazoo, Michigan area. Carolyn studied Sanchin-Ryu with us for over ten years, earning her black belt several years ago. She began studying Sanchin-Ryu with Jake Biernacki, DM after a bout with cancer and had fought a long battle with the disease throughout the years that we’d known her. She will be remembered by all of us for her positive attitude, free-spirited nature, love for her family and the way she overcame so many obstacles.
We send our condolences to her husband John and her daughters, Catherine and Sarah. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
