Sara “Anne” Van Culin

Posted On January 31st, 2018 -

Sara 1938 - 2017 Anne Van Culin, 79, of Honolulu, Hawai`i, and a recent resident of Olathe, Kansas, passed away October 18, 2017. Born June 23, 1938, to Otto and Anne (Deverill) Ludewig, Anne enjoyed her childhood with brothers Richard ("Dick") and Kent. Following graduation from Punahou School (Class of 1956), Anne headed to Colorado to study early education at Colorado A&M (now Colorado State University) and the University of Denver from which she graduated in 1960. Shortly after her graduation, Anne married Mr. Tom Van Culin of Honolulu, Hawaii with whom she enjoyed two grateful children, Tori (Van Culin) Koch of Olathe, Kansas, and Drew Van Culin of Grosse Pointe Farms, Michigan. Professionally, Anne undertook an early career teaching pre-school and kindergarten before embarking on a long career in real estate, originally in residential property sales and later in residential property management. In her retirement, Anne returned to her first love - teaching young children as a pre-school and kindergarten teacher. Over the course of her marriage and professional life, Anne made homes and countless friends throughout the country. From childhood friends in Hawai`i to college friends in Denver, to those she made throughout her professional and adult life in Bakersfield (CA), Minneapolis (MN), Honolulu (Hawai`i), Las Vegas (NV), and Olathe (KS), Anne filled her life with fond memories and even better friendships which she maintained throughout her life. Personally, Anne loved to travel and explore, and was fortunate to travel throughout the United States and well beyond. With sadness, Anne died still longing to see Alaska. Anne was also a film enthusiast. Always eager to see the latest release, Anne would easily - and gladly! - spend the day at the movies enjoying a double- (or triple-) feature whenever possible. And yet, Anne's greatest love and commitment was always for her family. A devoted mother, Anne was both a committed business woman outside of the home and the principle caregiver within it. Hustling from work to gymnastics with Tori, or to baseball with Drew, while preparing dinners and seeing to homework and laundry, Anne managed to do it all pleasantly and, even more, with good humor and a laugh. Anne, "Mom" to Tori and Drew, was a remarkable and dedicate mother for whom we are, and ever will be, immensely grateful. Anne's great love for her children was only surpassed by her immense love for her grandchildren, Isaac Koch, and Sam and Catherine Van Culin. She cherished being with them, cooking them dinner, baking cookies or brownies together, or simply goofing around. Even as mobility challenges limited her ability to get around, she found great joy simply by being in their presence and watching them grow and mature. Preceded in death by her brother Kent Ludewig and her (calabash) sister Sue Ludewig, Anne is survived by her daughter, Tori (Van Culin) Koch and her husband Randy; son, Drew Van Culin and his wife Jessica; grandchildren, Isaac Koch, Samuel Van Culin and Catherine Van Culin; her brother Dick and her nieces and nephews. A memorial service will be held at Saint Clement's Episcopal Church, Honolulu, Hawai`i on Wednesday, February 7 at 11am. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that gifts in memory of Anne be directed to Punahou School at 1601 Punahou Street, Attention Advancement Office, Honolulu, HI 96822. Please note on the check that your gift is in memory of "Anne Van Culin '56."

Vincent Talalemotu Mauga"Petty Officer First Class Vincent Talalemotu Mauga passed peacefully in the care of his wife, Mychele Mauga, on December 28, 2017, at the age of 39. Vincent was born on June 22, 1978, in Pago Pago, American Samoa to Talalemotu and Ivona Mauga. He graduated from Arizona State University in 2000 with a Bachelor of Science in Business. He married his forever love, Mychele Fong, on June 21, 2008 in Ewa Beach, Hawaii. The following year, he completed the U.S. Navy's basic training camp in Great Lakes, Illinois. He was first stationed in Kaneohe Marine Corps Base, as an aviation mechanic, in command VP-9. Vince completed five deployments and quickly rose in the ranks to First Class Petty Officer. He most recently served as a Non-Commissioned Officer stationed at Point Mugu, California. Vince embraced his life in Port Hueneme, where he lived out his greatest adventures with his 'adventure-twin,' Mychele. "Let's explore our time and live our story - just live." From a marriage that produced 10 children, the fifth of whom was Vincent, he learned the importance of faith and family. He carried his faith with him, providing guidance to all that came under his tutelage. Vincent lived as model husband and father, and loving protector to all, passing on his learned wisdom to family and friends. This gentle giant is remembered for combining his leadership with humor, and empowering others by his example of superhero strength in character. This quiet teacher and his faithful tenderness provided an irreplaceable balance to us all. Vincent is survived by his wife, Mychele; his daughters, Tori and Rychele; parents Talalemotu and Ivona Mauga; brothers, David, Junior, Paul, and Tim; sisters, Sala, Mary, Audrey, Gloria, and Marivonne. Beloved by all who came to know him, Vincent's heart was infinite extending his "family" to include all who call him son, brother, uncle, papa, braddah, teacher, father-figure, and with his last breath - dad, and husband. Through his eternal devotion to family we understand how sacrifice is truly a synonym for love. Services will be held on February 6th, 2018 at Hawaiian Memorial Park Mortuary Chapel (45-425 Kamehameha Hwy Kaneohe, HI 96744); visitation at 0830, Celebration of Life at 0930, with Committal service to follow promptly 1100 at Hawaii State Veterans Cemetery (45-349 Kamehameha Hwy, Kaneohe, HI 96744).
