Growing up mostly in the Waianae area, she was a self proclaimed tom-boy and recalls that day when the planes flew over kole kole pass while playing baseball with other neighborhood kids. The epitome of a great mom, she was compassionate and dedicated to her family. Always a hard worker, she enjoyed meeting and working with so many good friends throughout the years. Even in later years, she had a quick mind and enjoyed word puzzles, Jeopardy and especially Wheel of Fortune. However, her greatest joy came when family visited, providing her with little moments of happiness and endless joy.
