JOAN S. LINDSEY

Posted On November 2nd, 2016 -

JOAN S. LINDSEYJOAN S. LINDSEY Joan Na'u'oe'emilika'aokalikookalanialoha (Sniffen) Lindsey was born on November 12, 1928 in Honolulu to Noah K. Sniffen, Jr. and Marie (Kim) Sniffen. Raised in Honolulu by her maternal grand- parents, she also spent significant time in Kohala with her Sniffen grand- parents. Thereafter, Joan stayed at St. Anthony's Kalihi orphanage, along with her brothers, Noah and Paul and her sister, Theresa. Joan fought her way through a tough childhood, and did very well for herself. At 15 years old, Joan dropped out of high school shortly after the Pearl Harbor attack to work at the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard to put her brother through school, at Kamehameha School for Boys. She later earned her GED at Farrington High School. Joan met George K. Lindsey, Sr. through a mutual friend on the bus and they later wed on January 13, 1951. She worked for Holmes & Narver, Inc. briefly. Joan then worked for the Navy as a civilian where she also served as President of the Barbers Point Federal Credit Union. After more than 35 years of service, Joan retired as the Affirmative Action Officer (AAO) (formerly Equal Opportunity Officer (EEO)) for the Command at Naval Air Station Barber's Point. Joan was then hired by American Savings Bank as an Assistant Vice President functioning as their AAO. Joan was later appointed by then Governor John Waihe'e as the AAO for the State of Hawai'i. At the end of that term, she did what she loved best. She taught hula and 'ike Hawai'i as a Kumu at Kanoelani Elementary School. She enjoyed her tenure there but left as her husband required her care. As an inspiration to others she would say, "Not bad for a high school dropout." Joan was a very progressive woman, always ahead of her time. Although her career achievements were laudable, she was best known for her love of hula. Joan taught hula from 1949, over 67 years. She first studied under her aunt, Caroline Peters Tuck, then Auntie Lena Guerrero, and studied through her 'uniki under Auntie Lokalia Montgomery. Joan was a line dancer for Hawai'i's Songbird--the late Lena Machado. She remained close to her hula sisters Pi'olani Motta and April Villa, who were there at her side until the end. As the kumu hula for the Joan S. Lindsey Hula Studio, she shared her passion of hula with many generations. Her halau participated in the Queen Lili'uokalani Keiki Hula Competition from its debut at 'A'ala Park. She took a group of dancers to Japan to perform over a period of one month in the 70s. Although invited many times to teach in Japan, she felt Hawai'i is where the mana and piko of hula lives and opted to teach exclusively in Hawai'i. From its inception, she regularly participated in Hula O Na Keiki at the Ka'anapali Beach Hotel on Maui including next month's event. Other venues include the Moanike'ala Festival at the Polynesian Cultural Center and Mokihana Festival on Kaua'i. She didn't participate to win, rather to give her dancers an opportunity to shine. Her philosophy was to give the most attention to the students who required it. She always saw potential in every student. Joan also judged various hula competitions, including the Merrie Monarch in Hilo. Everything she did was with the utmost humility and ALOHA. She was well-respected and loved by many in the hula community and beyond, where she was known as Auntie Joanie. In 2013, she was honored with the I Ola Mau Ka Hula award by the Hula Preservation Society; in July 2015, she received the Malia Kau award from the Moanalua Gardens Foundation, among others. Auntie Joanie taught her last hula class on Thursday evening, October 13, 2016. She fell ill the next day and passed peacefully surrounded by family and friends on October 15, 2016. What a blessing that she did what she loved most (hula) until the end. She is predeceased by her dear husband George, parents, and siblings Noah Sniffen, Paul Sniffen and Theresa Ah-Nee. She is survived by her sons George K. Lindsey, Jr. (Tricia), Bryan H. Lindsey (Lori), Robert M. Lindsey (Nova), daughter LaJoy A. Lindsey, 16 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren, family, friends and thousands of students whose hearts she has touched. Memorial services on Thursday, November 3, 2016 at Mililani Cemetery, Mauka Chapel, visitation begins at 8:30am and services at 11:00am.

Michael Roy StrongMICHAEL ROY STRONG Michael Roy Strong passed away on October 11, 2016. Born on April 13, 1947 in Brooklyn, New York, he was 69 years old. He was retired and resided in Honolulu. Mike lived most of his life on Kaua'i. He earned a Bachelor's Degree in Soil Science from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. Mike was an innovative figure in Hawai'i agriculture. Decades Before the current "farm to table" movement, his Kaua'i acreage produced locally consumed vegetables, papaya, ornamentals, nursery crops and some of the earliest state plantings of exotic fruit like mangosteen and rambutan. He traveled to Southeast Asia, Australia and other parts of the tropical world to research these crops and obtain planting material. Simultaneous with being a producer, he also spearheaded agricultural development on former plantation lands. When the Moloa'a area of Kauai had large-scale papaya plantings, Mike worked tirelessly with his fellow farmers to advance the local cooperative's interests. His farming success led to foreign consultant jobs with the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). He worked throughout Central America and the Caribbean. In Belize, his expertise created a local papaya industry from scratch. Mike served his community for a term on the Kauai Board of Water Supply. He loved sharing his knowledge with other farmers. He was a proud member of the Hawai'i Farm Bureau Federation, and the Kaua'i County Farm Bureau. He worked with those organizations to successfully lobby the Federal government to get agricultural hurricane relief for Kaua'i in the wake of the Inik'i and Iw'a disasters. He was an avid surfer, enjoying the Waikokos break on Kauai's north shore. Mike also enjoyed following pro surfing. In addition to his work and surfing, Mike loved motorcycles, music and Mexican food. He was preceded in death by his parents, Hubert Roy and Laura Strong of Yucaipa, California. He is survived by sons Eric Michael Strong of Kilauea, Kaua'i, Dylan Carl Strong of Moloa'a, Kaua'i, Austin Kalani Strong of Berkeley, California, former wife Candace Louise Strong of Honolulu, Sister Susan Trenschel of Goleta, California, nephew Christopher Trenschel of San Francisco, California, niece Sarah Trenschel of Mountain View California, grandsons Roy Eric Strong, August Robert Strong, and Maxim Michael Strong, all of Grand Terrace, California, and granddaughter Solana Ceres Strong of Moloa'a, Kaua'i.

JOSEPHINE REGALA DE LUZ

Posted On October 31st, 2016 -

JOSEPHINE REGALA DE LUZJOSEPHINE REGALA DE LUZ May 13, 1929 - October 19, 2016 Josephine Regala De Luz was an extraordinary woman. Adventurous. Intelligent. Fun-loving. Courageous. Gracious. And one of the most loving, compassionate people you would ever be blessed to know. There are so many words and ways to describe her but she was her most fulfilled as a wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Jo's life was long and rich. She grew up as a rascally girl in Kilauea on the island of Kauai, climbing trees, slip-sliding down streams, and making the kind of lifelong connections that can only really be forged in small, rural communities that are defined by the way family and friends care for one another. Jo grew into a beautiful young woman who loved music. At 16, she sailed to the United States mainland aboard an ocean steamer to tour the country with her church choral group. Later Jo would attend the University of Hawaii at Manoa as a music major. While her rich alto voice would always stay with her, a music degree wasn't in her future. Instead, she married a young man named Elias Perfecto Yadao (Epy) and interrupted her college education to accompany Epy to Washington D.C. while he attended law school at the George Washington University. While in D.C., Jo and Epy had the first two of their four children - Barbara Lynne and Emil John, and were part of a community of young people from Hawaii whose educations were made possible by the GI Bill. The family eventually made their way to Hilo, Hawaii where Epy opened a solo law practice and also started his political career as a member of the Hawaii County Board of Supervisors. The younger two children, Elisa Jo and Elias Perfecto Junior, better known as Buddy, were both born in Hilo. In 1966, following Epy's death, Jo succeeded him on the County Council. She also became the single parent of four children who were then 13, 12, 9 and 2. Jo served on the council for 10 years. In 1976, she went back to school at the University of Hawaii at Hilo. Her graduation, with a degree in business, ranks as one of the proudest moments of her four children. In 1982, Jo married Hilo businessman David De Luz Sr. Jo and David loved ranching, traveling, entertaining and one another. Among their greatest joys was having a houseful of children and grandchildren. Their life together was full of both happiness and challenge, and until her last day Jo was devoted to ensuring David's well-being. She is survived by husband David, children Barbara Yadao-Petti (William), Emil (Loriann Gordon), Elisa Yadao Jones (Steve), Elias (Lynnett), grandchildren Jeremy Yadao, Kayla, Kawai and Arisa Yadao, Sihon and Stuart Jones and great-grandchildren Jaiyah, Liam and Eli Yadao and Samson Jones. Visitation 2 p.m., service at 4 p.m. Thursday, November 3 at Dodo Mortuary in Hilo. Casual attire, no flowers please. Even after 87 years of living life to its fullest, Jo's death came suddenly and too soon for those of us who love her. But the love she shared comforts and sustains us always and keeps her alive in our hearts. Safe journey Mom.
