GIFFEN, GRACE CLEGHORN

Posted On November 5th, 2013 -

GIFFEN, GRACE CLEGHORN Giffen, Grace Cleghorn, 98, of Wahiawa, HI and Annapolis, MD, died October 22 of old age. Born on Kahuku Sugar Plantation, Kahuku, Januray 4, 1915 to the late Grace Olsen Cleghorn and William Arthur Cleghorn, Grace grew up in a world full of animals, agriculture and bare feet. Peacocks were watchdogs and a wild piglet that she raised would follow her to school. Grace boarded at Punahou School where she took swimming lessons from Duke Kahanamoku and became a strict grammarian. Despite her fluency in pidgin English, Grace never mistook the proper use of the personal pronouns I and me. She remembered the attack on Pearl Harbor only too well – a bomb, a dud, landed in their front yard. During the War that Grace met her husband of 59 years, Capt. Robert (Skip)C. Giffen, Jr., USN, of Annapolis, MD. Skip was a submariner, in and out of Pearl Harbor on patrol when introduced to Grace. They married six weeks later at St. Andrew’s Cathedral and what followed was a typical military life: lots of moves and frequent separations. Still, Grace returned to the Islands regularly and, when asked where she was from, always said Hawaii. Following Skip’s retirement, the couple settled in Annapolis in 1967. At the time of her death, Grace had outlived most of her contemporaries but she will continue to be loved by her family and friends for her strong sense of propriety, perfect grammar and encyclopedic knowledge of Emily Post. Grace was preceded in death by her mother in 1934, father in 1959, husband in 2003, brother C.T. Cleghorn in 1972 and sister Dagmar C. Baldwin in 1973. She is survived by her daughter Dagmar G. Cosby, her son Robert C. Giffen III (and wife Ann Lallande); her four grandchildren: Erin C. Plumb (and husband Marion), Carrington G. Cosby, Robert C. Giffen IV (and wife Katelyn), Nicole L. Giffen and her two great grandchildren: Grace and Emma Plumb. Memorial donations in her name may be made to: Punahou School, 1601 Punahou St, Honolulu, HI 96822.
