After retiring, she remained quite active in Hawaiian quilting, attending aerobics and yoga classes, reading, and enjoying the use of an iMac and iPad — presents from her grandchildren — which she learned to use in her eighties. She and Raymond were long time Episcopalian congregants and faithful members of St Mary’s Episcopal Church in Moiliili. Annie loved her independence and continued to drive, and care for her home and yard, into her nineties. She will be remembered for her friendliness, kindness, steadfastness, and generosity, as well as the sacrifices she and her husband made for their two sons’ education. Annie is survived by her sons Randall K.C. Kau (and his wife, Elizabeth McLain Olmsted) of New York City, and Clayton K.S. Kau (and his wife, Jaimie Leigh Kau) of Palos Verdes Estates, California. She is also survived by her grandsons Andrew McLain Kau of New York City, and Timothy Amson Kau of Hong Kong. She was predeceased by her grandson Nicholas James Peter Kau, of New York, in 2009. Annie is survived as well by her older brother Bernard Ching of Kaneohe. Her four other siblings: brothers Thomas Ching and En Sui Ching, and sisters Lucy Diamond and Katherine Spencer, predeceased her. A remembrance service will be held at St Mary’s at a future date, with a private burial at Hawaiian Memorial Park Cemetery. The family thanks her caregivers Janneth Black, Lan Higa, Gay Hadama, Muoi Nguyen, and Dung Le, and her niece Karen Stockton, for their loving help in allowing Annie to live comfortably and happily in her home, as well as all her friends, relatives, and neighbors who visited her.
