MARGUERITE (PEGGY) KAPOINA DOWSON ARCIERO

Posted On March 11th, 2018 -

MARGUERITE (PEGGY) KAPOINA DOWSON ARCIEROMarguerite (Peggy) Kapoina Dowson Arciero passed away gently at first light on Feb. 23, 2018, at about the time that her well fed birds started chirping outside her open windows. She loved her birds, her books, and her Ohana. Peggy was born in Paia, Maui on Dec. 12, 1920 to Marguerite Evans Dowson and Dr. Charles P Dowson, the first dentist on the island of Maui in the early 1900s. She was taken under the wing of the Farden family after her mother died when she was a child. She appreciated Mother Farden's good cooking and became fast friends for life with her youngest child, Edna. She graduated from Lahainaluna High School and attended the University of Hawaii until WW II broke out. Soon she married Robert Arciero, a young Army officer from Connecticut in 1943. After raising their five children she went back to the U.H. as a librarian for 25 years. Her husband predeceased her as did her younger brothers, Joseph Dowson and Charles "Buddy" Dowson. Peggy served as president of the Queen Emma Hawaiian Civic Club several times over. She has been described as being tall, regal and gracious. She was a kind woman whose greatest flaw was being generous to a fault. Peggy saw the spark of good in everyone she met and lived the true Aloha Spirit. She delighted in the small thingsa ripe ulu, a juicy mango, a fresh caught fish, a swim in the ocean. In an autobiography she wrote that, "I am a survivor of a wonderful life in Hawaii." She is survived by her five children, Theresa Jones, Anthony Arciero, James Arciero, Pam Arciero, Peter Arciero and their loving spouses. She is also survived by her nine adoring grandchildren and her seven great grandchildren, all of whom know her simply as "Tutu." Her presence in our lives is sorely missed by everyone. Viewing 9:00 AM, Eulogies 10:15 AM, followed by mass on Thursday, March 22, Holy Trinity Catholic Church, 5919 Kalanianaole Hwy.

He mentored young Native Hawaiian scientists and was dedicated to the Native Hawaiian community and to Native Hawaiian youth in STEM. He was an advisor for the 'Imiloa Astronomy Center, served on the State's Hawaiian lexicon committee, led the Research Experiences for Undergraduates program and led the National Science Foundation's mitigation program for the DKIST.
