Annette Nalani Ebinger

Posted On September 23rd, 2018 -

Annette Nalani Olds Ebinger, age 94, passed away peacefully on August 27, 2018 in Honolulu, Hawaii, surrounded by her family. She was born on February 25, 1924 in Honolulu to Clarence James Olds and Madeline Young. Her grandparents were James Olds, Jr. and Anastasia Nalani Olds and Charles and Lavaina Coster. In 1946, she married Albert J. Ebinger, a Captain in the Army Air Corps, who was a decorated fighter pilot, awarded the Silver Star for heroism in World War II. In 1950, they welcomed a son, Michael Allen. Her husband Albert predeceased her in 1962. Annette attended Punahou School for eight years and graduated in the Class of 1941. She attended the University of Hawaii until classes were closed after the December 7 attack on Pearl Harbor. As martial law came to Hawaii, she worked for the Army Corps of Engineers on the Punahou campus. She then joined Home Insurance and worked in the Claims Department. Annette was a hula dancer of grace and beauty and performed with Ray Andrade's hula show at La Hula Rhumba Club on the slopes of Punchbowl. She also performed in California as a featured dancer with the troop. With the coming of Statehood to Hawaii and a burgeoning tourist industry, Annette joined Matson Navigation Company and opened sales desks at the Royal Hawaiian and Moana Hotels. In 1951, she went to work at the corporate office of Tradewind Tours, which later became Inter-Island Trade Wind Tours and International Travel Service in Waikiki. She enjoyed a successful career in travel and retired as the Vice President of Sales and Operations. The marketing and advertising skills she had so successfully employed in the tourist industry were then transferred to an affiliation dear to her heart: the sport of polo. Annette loved animals, and in particular horses and horseback riding. As her son Michael became an expert horseman at a young age, and eventually a polo player, she was his staunchest fan and a loyal supporter of the sport. She rarely missed the Sunday polo games at the Honolulu, Waimanalo, or Mokuleia Polo Fields on O'ahu where Michael's team played. For many years, she designed the program for the polo seasons and garnered community support for the Waimanalo team. Along with life-long friends from the travel industry, she will be dearly missed by many polo fans who became her close friends, as well as players and their families she watched grow up over the years. Annette is survived by her son Michael Allen Ebinger and a sister Puna Olds Darval. In addition, she is survived by many nieces and nephews, grand-nieces and grand-nephews, and cousins. Two brothers, Charles M. Olds and James C. Olds predeceased her in 1930 and 1998, respectively. A Farewell Memorial Service will be held on Thursday, September 27 at Diamond Head Mortuary Chapel with Visitation from 9:00 to 10:30 with the Memorial Service following. Inurnment will be held at 12:30 at the Cemetery across from the Chapel. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Hawaiian Humane Society, Habilitat, and/or Wounded Warriors Project.

GEORGE and CAROLYN GOTO

Posted On September 23rd, 2018 -

GEORGE and CAROLYN GOTOGeorge Goto was a loving husband, brother, father, and grandfather. He was also a veteran, accomplished doctor, and pioneer of women's rights. The following paragraphs highlight the milestones of an extraordinary man's life. Know that no words could encompass the good he gave this world in his lifetime. George Goto was born on August 18th 1921 and spent his childhood on a plantation in Makaweli, Kauai. He grew up a loving son and brother, chewing sugarcane, climbing trees, and pretending he was Tarzan. He began his education in the public schools of Kauai, moved to Oahu to study agriculture at the University of Hawaii (1940-1941 and 1946-1947), and completed medical school at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Missouri (1947-1951). WWII interrupted his education and changed the course of his life in 1941. Spurred by patriotism to the country whose first president inspired his name, Goto joined the 442nd Regimental Combat Team..."Go for Broke". While serving in the army, Goto traveled far from his island home: he completed training in Camp Shelby, MS; served in Europe while on active duty; became his unit's historian; and was honorably discharged as a corporal after proudly serving his country. Upon returning home, George Goto completed medical school to honor the dream of an army friend who died in the war. Goto did so on the GI Bill without completing an undergraduate degree, working hard to catch up academically, and graduating proudly as an M.D. While in his residency, he met many girls, but married only one, Carolyn. Afterward, they moved back to Hawaii, built their own home, and had two daughters, Cindy and Cathy. Goto was a dedicated father who provided for his family by starting his own practice. He became an accomplished OBGYN who spent decades serving the women of Hawaii. Inspired by his patients, and motivated to give his daughters the rights they deserved, Goto fought for a woman's right to choose. Goto worked hard as a doctor, husband, and father, and rose to the heights of success in each role. He died July 23rd 2018 and is survived by two daughters and two grandchildren who love him dearly. We all hope he rests peacefully, knowing he left the world a better place for knowing him. George is survived by brothers Renji and Yoshio, sister Sumile Francisco, daughters Cynthia and Catherine, grandson Michael Zane, granddaughter Heather Zane. Carolyn Sue Goto was born Carolyn Sue Barrett on December 11th 1931. She grew up an only child in Tulsa, Oklahoma, with loving parents who raised her to be strong and generous. Always quick-witted and social, she embedded herself in her community. She grew up singing in her church choir, playing the piano, and developing an enduring love of music and people. Education was important to her family, and Carolyn moved easily from the halls of Will Rogers High School, to the campus of University of Oklahoma, and eventually to nursing school in St. Louis, Missouri. As a nursing student, she met her future husband, George, while working the night shift at the hospital. Their marriage was controversial at the time because she was White, he was Japanese, and they were living in post-WWII Missouri. Knowing they were on the right side of history, they crossed state lines where interracial marriage was legal, and started their life together. When Carolyn finished nursing school and George completed his residency, they moved to Honolulu, Hawaii. Their new home was completely foreign to her, but Carolyn was always tenacious and ready to face new challenges. She joined a new community at Central Union Church, managed the office for her husband's private practice, and tried her best to acclimate to a place with no seasons. Carolyn and George were always a team both professionally and in their marriage. They had two daughters, Cindy and Cathy, and learned to be parents together. Carolyn loved her daughters and was determined to show them the world. They took family vacations to many places, ranging from beautiful European cities, to sightseeing in National Parks, and even to fishing trips in Colorado. Carolyn's famous hatred of eating river-trout never stopped her from taking her daughters, and eventually her grandchildren for family vacations. Carolyn was the matriarch of the family, and loved by all. She was generous with gifts, but more generous with love. She died August 24th 2018, and is survived by two daughters and two grandchildren, but remembered by many more. We hope she rests knowing her family loves and misses her every day. Carolyn is survived by daughters Cynthia and Catherine, grandson Michael Zane and granddaughter Heather Zane. Services for George and Carolyn will be held on Saturday, September 29th at Central Union Church, Atherton Chapel. Visitation 3:00 p.m. Services: 4:00 p.m. Private inurnment. Aloha attire. No flowers.
