Anna Derby BlackwellAugust 12, 1932 October 18, 2016 Mother, Writer, Musician, Volunteer, Friend One year ago, Hawai'i lost a loving and devoted daughter, one of those born in the generation that saw the islands transition from the Territorial period, into Statehood and beyond. Anna Derby (Bond, Howe) Blackwell died peacefully at Queen's Hospital on Tuesday October 18, 2016. Anna Charlotte Kalaninuiaiamaumau Derby was born in Kapi'olani Hospital on August 12, 1932 in Honolulu, the oldest of four children born to Stephen and Dora (Cooke) Derby of Makiki Heights. A proud descendant of three missionary families, Anna grew up hearing stories of the kingdom period from those who had lived through it, and throughout her own life she endeavored to pass those stories on to everyone she knew. She touched many, many lives in so many places and in so many ways, with humor, style and unconditional love -- we should count ourselves lucky to ever see her like again in one lifetime. Anna is survived by her siblings Philander C. Derby and his wife, GeorgeAnne; Martha D McDaniel, John M Derby and his wife, Lyn; her five children, Caroline Bond Davis, Susan (Suzi) Bond, Boyd Davis Bond and his wife, Becky, Sarah (Sally) Bond, and Elizabeth (Betsy) Bond Deniston, and her husband Larry; seven grandchildren, eleven great-grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews, all of whom collectively were the center of her life. Anna's ohana hosted a celebration of her life at Saint Clements' Episcopal Church in Makiki on Saturday November 5, 2016. Anna is gone in the physical sense but lives on within everyone who was fortunate enough to know her. A hui hou, until we meet again.

Herbert “Herb” Yau Hoy Chinn

Posted On October 18th, 2017 -

Herbert September 26, 2017 Dr. Herbert Y. H. Chinn, 97, of Honolulu, a renowned physician, passed peacefully in his sleep on September 26, 2017, in Honolulu. He is survived by his loving wife of 66 years, Una Chuh Chinn; sons Dr. Herbert K. W. (Vivian) Chinn, Dr. Stephen K. B. (Gwen) Chinn, Hon. Eric K. H. (Hon. Lisa Chin) Chinn; daughters Dr. Patricia L. Chinn, Barbara C. (Fred) Lau, Wendy C. (Blake) Vance; brother Dr. Kenneth Y. T. (Lillian) Chinn; and nine grandchildren. Herbert Y. H. Chinn graduated from St. Louis High School, Western Reserve University [nka Case Western Reserve University], and Boston University School of Medicine. After completing his residency at Kings County Hospital in New York City, Dr. Chinn returned home where he established himself as a pioneer of modern medicine in the state. Dr. Chinn led the development of hemodialysis and transplant medicine in Hawaii with the creation of the kidney dialysis and kidney transplant programs at St. Francis Hospital. As President of the Hawaii Medical Association, Dr. Chinn obtained federal funding to develop Hawaii's Emergency Medical Technician program. As Chairman of Hawaii's Emergency Medical Services program, Dr. Chinn ensured "911" was expanded throughout the state. Dr. Chinn was a driving force in establishing the University of Hawaii John A. Burns School of Medicine. In addition to his many professional contributions, Herb was a dedicated, loving husband, father, and (with six children to feed) an excellent cook. For years at Thanksgiving, Herb was known to prepare the most delicious, kiawe-smoked turkeys and chickens in his homemade 55-gallon drum smoker. Herb would awaken at 3 am and, by mid-afternoon, deliver 20-25 smoked chickens and turkeys to share with relatives and friends. Herb and Una were innovative in their culinary creations which included using Una's secret, family-tested marinade that Herb would inject into chicken thighs long before the use of kitchen syringes became fashionable. Herb was an avid and proud home gardener and farmer who delighted in sharing his sweet, juicy tangerines, longan, pomelo, starfruit, and flowers, as well as tilapia raised in his fish pond. He shared his New Year crab claw narcissus which he carved with surgical precision. As active with his family as with his medical career, Herb created lasting memories of weekend crabbing and fishing trips in Kaneohe, swimming and barbeques in Waimanalo, making "assembly line" lau lau at home with his children, attending midnight mass with the family followed by a potful of takeout won ton mein for his ohana to enjoy at home, and countless family gatherings in his and Una's home. Traveling together from the Great Wall to the pyramids in Egypt and beyond, Herb swept Una around the world. Truly a model, loving husband and caring father, Herb is in our hearts forever.

Barbara Ann Moon

Posted On October 18th, 2017 -

Barbara Ann Moon, age 75, of Honolulu passed away on October 8, 2017. She was born in Joplin, Missouri to Phyllis and Ray Heller on December 4, 1941. After receiving a degree in journalism from the University of Missouri, she worked at newspapers in Texas and Chicago before moving to Honolulu. Initially working as a civilian with the U.S. Navy, she joined the City and County of Honolulu, where she enjoyed a 34-year long career, retiring as a manager with the Department of Planning and Permitting (fka DLU). Her sharp intellect and personal and professional integrity were the hallmarks of her distinguished career. To those she loved, her caring and loyalty were boundless. Those who knew and loved her best also knew that her quiet demeanor belied a dry wit and wicked, sometimes raucous, sense of humor. To play poker with her risked being subjected to her victory dance as she merrily took your chips and issued orders to deal another hand. To laugh with her was joyous and unforgettable. She was a much beloved mother, grandmother, sister and friend who lived and died on her own terms...with courage, compassion, dignity and grace. She shall forever be missed. Survivors include son Ryan, daughter-in-law Deanna, grandsons Evan and Nathan, daughter Rima, sister Donna Kennedy, brother Duane Kennedy, sister Sissy Kennedy, friend Geri Ung and the Ung Family. Private services held. Arrangements Provided By: HOSOI GARDEN MORTUARY
