ELEANORA CAMBRA CADINHA 88, Cadinha matriarch, her smile radiant, laugh contagious and deep love for her family and friends passed away on July 2, 2017. Eleanora was a fabulous cook and baker and was always willing to share her time and talents with anyone who asked. She presented cooking shows on Hawaiian Electric, cooking demos at the Old Liberty House, and even presented cooking classes at the Moiliili Community Center.
