Elissa A. Heanani Carter ELISSA A. HEANANI CARTER "Lisa," age 75, passed away at her home in Honolulu surrounded by loved ones on October 5, 2017. She was born on March 10, 1942 to Vivian and Thomas J. Carter, Jr.. Lisa graduated from President Theodore Roosevelt High School in 1959 and attended Woodbury College in California. She married but was later divorced and raised her two children as a single-parent. The family thrived alongside Lisa's mother, Vivian, who remained in the Carter household until her passing in 2006. She eventually retired after almost 35-years with the Honolulu Advertiser as an Ad Graphics Compositor. Lisa was a strong and independent woman with a zest for life and enjoyed sharing her love of literature, the arts and exquisite cuisine with those closest to her. She was a thoughtful gift-giver, an avid reader and had excellent taste. She adored Tom Selleck, loved classical music, everything Disney, The Food Network and never missed an episode of Star Trek or the ever-present and long-time running, Law & Order. She was a hobbyist collector and had a deep appreciation for both her Portuguese and Hawaiian culture and heritage. As a proud democrat, feminist and long-time union supporter (International Typographical Union Local 37), she had strong political views and wouldn't hesitate to speak her mind. She was highly intelligent, loyal, kind, generous and quick-witted. A treasured mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt, cousin, friend and confidant, she is survived by her son, Kalani Formica (Katia); daughter, Kaipo Carter Warren; grandchildren, Amanda Moran, Brandon Formica, Andrew Formica, Breeanna Formica, Kira Guzman, Makenna Warren, Paisley Warren and seven great-grandchildren. ~ She will be deeply missed ~

Jean C. Leong82, joined her eternal Father in Heaven on October 28, 2017. She was first and foremost a devoted and loving mother and wife -- full of energy and spirit, adventure, patience, kindness and that lighthearted laugh. Jean grew up in Kalihi and graduated from Farrington High School in 1953. She loved singing and dancing the jitterbug. Jean worked as a stenographer, secretary, bookkeeper and executive assistant in Hawaii, Los Angeles, Sacramento and San Francisco throughout the years. She met her husband, George Leong, at a dance in Honolulu. She said it was love at first sight -- on his part. Jean married her life-long partner in Sacramento in 1956. During their 45 years of marriage, they raised four children - Jodi Leong, Jeanne Bissen (Warren), Eric Leong (Cheryl) and Jennifer Young (Royden). Jean said she so enjoyed being a stay at home mom when her children were young -- playing ball, coloring books and being there for them. When the children were grown, Jean returned to work as an office manager and executive assistant for her husband's firm, George Leong and Associates. She loved working and golfing with her husband until his passing in 2002. Jean is survived by her four grateful children and their spouses; eight grandchildren who adored her -- Briauna, Shaun, Cami, Jarin, Kiarra, Kekoa, Kainoa and Caris; and two sisters -- Elaine Vega and Joy Schoonover. A private memorial service was held at the Hawaii State Veterans Cemetery, Hawaiian Memorial Park.
