Eunice Leinaala Auld Kaina, age 86, of Kapahulu, Hawaii, entered the gates of heaven on October 3, 2011. Born December 22, 1924, in Honolulu, to Edith I. and Orlando K. Auld, founders of the Gospel of Salvation Church, Eunice’ early employers included the State of Hawaii and the Spencecliff Corp. She retired at age 47 to care for her father and continued the ministry as Senior Pastor until 2001. As director for the many GOS choirs and Fireman’s Auxiliary Club, Aunty ‘Lala’s’ passion for music gave her the patience and perseverance to teach so many through the years. Eunice’ dedication did not end at music, she became caregiver to many of her family and church members. As a beloved Wife, devoted Mother, inspirational Sister, respected Aunt and the ‘Grammy’ whose love was unconditional, the greatest love she would want to share with you was the love she had for her God.
