Age 78 of La Vernia, Texas, left this Earth on 26 September 2011. Born 09 March 1933, Barbara spent most of her life on Oahu, Hawaii. Barbara was a family leader of great strength, stamina, courage, optimism, and love. For the last month of her life, Barbara fought the good fight; finished the race, and all the while she kept the faith.

Seven children survive Barbara: Michael Murray, Kathleen Niez, Daniel Murray, Shawn Murray, Matthew Murray, Theresa Murray, and Mary Au. Barbara is also survived by many hanai ohana (you all know who you are), 16 grandchildren, and 13 great grandchildren.

For friends wishing to share last moments, Barbara’s ashes will be at St. John Apostle and Evangelist Catholic Church in Mililani Town at 09:15am on Friday, 21 October 2011. An informal eulogy will take place from 09:15-10:00am. Promptly at 10:00am that same morning, Father Mooya will bless Barbara’s ashes.

Barbara’s immediate family will be taking her to Waimea Bay, her final resting place on Earth on Saturday morning, 22 October 2011 where Barbara will be joined with her late husband Patrick, her mother Esther, and God.
