Lorraine (Duro) Lum “Laura”

LORRAINE (DURO) LUM “LAURA”

Lorraine “Laura” Lum moved on to new adventures on October 20 at Pali Momi Medical Center.

Laura was born August 20, 1940 to parents Victor and Alice Duro. She grew up in Kapahulu with sisters Laverne Gabriel, Caroline DeMello, and Victoria “Missy” Duro and brothers Clayton, Clifford, and Dennis “Joby”.

She attended Kaimuki High School where she fell in love with Daniel Lum, whom she married. They were happily married for 52 years and raised four children: Gordon, Nathan “Bully”, Jeffrey “Jim” and Danielle “Sis.”

She also was proud of her grandchildren: Gina Leslie, Nanea Lum, Kawehi Lum, Chivanna Hatchie, and Lokahikahonua Lum.

She was often found at her children’s and grandchildren’s athletic, dramatic, artistic, and academic events. A firm believer in supporting children, she attended events for nephews and nieces, too. Her cheers of support will be missed.

Before retiring she was a loyal and respected executive secretary at Grayline Hawaii and Outrigger Hotels.

Lorraine passed quietly after a lengthy illness with her family at her side. Mahalo to the nurses and respiratory therapists at Pali Momi’s ICU and to Dr. Kevin Hara for treating her with loving kindness and giving us three bonus years with her.

Services Friday, November 18 at Kaumakapili Church. 5:30 visitation. 6:30 service.

In Loving Memory of
JAMES P.G. CASTANEDA (TACO)

On 16 November 2009 James left us and went with the Lord. You are gone but not forgotten. Not a day goes by that we do not think about you. James was a loving son, brother, friend and father; he was always available to listen when someone just wanted to talk. His two sons, Kaeo and Kaimi, were the center of his life. He spent countless hours working with them on homework, sports and just enjoying the honor of being their “dad”. We miss James very much and he is in our thoughts and prayers everyday. The world lost the most unselfish person when James left to be with the Lord and heaven gained a special angel. The Lord forgives all who accept him into their hearts and lives. James is truly missed in our lives, but we know he is at peace. We love you and miss you. Your Mom and Joe.

Kaeo and Kaimi: You are in our hearts forever and we miss the both of you dearly. We hope to see or hear from you one day. Love and God Bless, Grandma Lupe and Papa Joe. Please visit Face book at “In loving Memory of James P.G. Castaneda” to view pictures, read comments and write your own comments about the special times you shared with James.
