Funeral Notices


77 years old, Linda was born on December 24, 1940 in Honolulu, Hawaii and passed away at home in Kapolei, Hawaii on May 8, 2018.
Our mom worked at Sky Chef for many years, as a Food handler and then went on to work at Subway in Nu’uanu before retiring.
She was very talented and played softball for many years. If she wasn’t at the beach, you could catch mom at home, singing her favorite Hawaiian and Christian songs. She loved being around her family, and…
she will surely be missed…
