DAPHNE L. AMCOTTS

Beloved wife, mother and grandmother, Daphne Amcotts, passed peacefully surrounded by her loving family on January 21st 2011, just after her 87th birthday. She was born in Rangoon, Burma in 1924. Daphne was in the Women’s British Royal Navy Service (W.R.N.S.) during W.W.II., in Ceylon. Daphne and her husband Peter, of 53 yrs., met in Ceylon and lived in England, Africa, Canada, Hawaii and California. They shared a lifetime of adventures, a love of books, classical music, sailing and a loving family. Daphne’s husband, Peter, passed away in 2002. She is survived by her daughters Karen and Julie. Her grandchildren Jonathan and Emily, through Karen, and Jessica and Sarah, through Julie, loved her dearly and will treasure the fond memories she gave them all. Daphne also has a brother Gerald in Manhattan, NY. Daphne’s talent and love of the piano and dance was a gift to us all. Many admired her real estate skills as a broker in Hawaii and as an agent in Marin, CA. Daphne exhibited a rare quality of ‘grace’ and was a beautiful and delightful lady. Giving came naturally to her; she gave everything and required little. She had a wonderful combination of warmth, patience and kindness, but was a pillar of strength. Heaven just got a shining star. A memorial took place, Saturday January 22, 2011. Flowers were scattered off of a sailboat on S.F. Bay, on a beautiful sunny day. There will also be a memorial sea scattering off Diamond Head, Honolulu, Hawaii, May 8th, 2011.
