Born in Honolulu, HI, raised in Wahiawa and Kailua beachside while it was still country. Evacuated on the Lurline during WWII to California and Illinois with her mother and brother. After returning to Hawaii, she graduated from Punahou School, class of 1955, and attended the University of Colorado. She was a Stewardess for United Airlines, and worked for the Bishop National Bank in Honolulu before marrying and moving to Alamo, California for 23 years. There she raised her cherished daughters, Lani and Lesley Williamson. She returned to Hawaii, worked for many years for Liberty House, and married her husband of 29 years, Kenneth Saito.

She loved her home, her cats, and her gardens, especially her orchids, and could make anything grow. She was charmingly feisty in character and willing to try anything, but she will have to come back to learn to drive with a stick shift and clutch. Aloha Carma, we are all going to miss you deeply.

COLLEEN MORROW ROMANEK

Colleen “Sugar” Morrow Romanek died Friday, November 11th at the age of 84. She passed away peacefully, surrounded by her three loving children at Kahala Nui in Honolulu.

Sugar was born in Oakland, California on August 12, 1927 and moved to Honolulu shortly afterwards. She attended Washington Elementary School and Punahou. She left Hawaii to attend Finch College in New York City where she met her first husband, Richard “Dick” Morrow who was a student and football player at Yale University. They fell in love and married shortly after graduation from college.

DIck worked for Hercules Powder Company, and his job took them to Oregon, Kansas, New York and ultimately Wilmington, Delaware where they settled and raised three children.

After Dick’s death in 1984, Sugar moved back to Honolulu to help care for her aging parents, Haydn and Lois Phillips. Haydn was a well-known architect in the islands responsible for the design of many prestigious homes in Kahala and Waialae Iki, as well as the Orvis Auditorium at the University of Hawaii. Lois was well known for her charity work with the Festival of Trees, a fifty year tradition benefitting Queen’s Hospital.

After resuming an active social life at the Outrigger Canoe Club, Sugar met her second husband, Henry Romanek, a retired Army Colonel. They were married and spent ten happy years together until Henry’s death in 2008.

Sugar moved to Kahala Nui just before Henry’s passing, and resided in the independent living facility for nearly four years. She made many new friends there, and reacquainted herself with old friends from her youth. She will always be remembered as a cheerful and friendly woman who enjoyed her evening cocktail!

Sugar is survived by her three children: Gary Morrow of Rancho Palos Verdes, California, Grant Morrow of Honolulu, and Patricia Morrow McLoughlin of Manhattan Beach, California. She is also survived by her beloved niece, Randy Silleck Conway of Honolulu, and her nephew Haydn Silleck of Boulder, Colorado. Sugar had three grandchildren, Erin, Ian and Gabriella, all residing in California.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations be made to Sugar’s favorite charity, the Hawaii Humane Society. The family would love to hear from any and all who knew Sugar, please send email correspondence to: sugarsfamily@grantmorrow.com Aloha Mom! We love you!

In Loving Memory of
JAMES P.G. CASTANEDA (TACO)

On 16 November 2009 James left us and went with the Lord. You are gone but not forgotten. Not a day goes by that we do not think about you. James was a loving son, brother, friend and father; he was always available to listen when someone just wanted to talk. His two sons, Kaeo and Kaimi, were the center of his life. He spent countless hours working with them on homework, sports and just enjoying the honor of being their “dad”. We miss James very much and he is in our thoughts and prayers everyday. The world lost the most unselfish person when James left to be with the Lord and heaven gained a special angel. The Lord forgives all who accept him into their hearts and lives. James is truly missed in our lives, but we know he is at peace. We love you and miss you. Your Mom and Joe.

Kaeo and Kaimi: You are in our hearts forever and we miss the both of you dearly. We hope to see or hear from you one day. Love and God Bless, Grandma Lupe and Papa Joe. Please visit Face book at “In loving Memory of James P.G. Castaneda” to view pictures, read comments and write your own comments about the special times you shared with James.

DIANE EVETTE UEHARA

Posted On November 13th, 2011 -

DIANE EVETTE UEHARA

Diane Evette Uehara, the most beautiful, brown-eyed girl was born to Patsy Fusae Yasuda and Richard Kokichi Uehara in Honolulu February 2, 1944.

Diane was the first of 3 girls. She spoke of her childhood fondly, about carefree times in Chinatown on Buckle Lane. Her mother was a waitress and her father a chef so she often missed them, particularly on holidays. Dad’s parents lived next door so she grew up with Okinawan traditions. Young Diane demanded fish when neighbors invited her for dinner.

Diane was shy but blessed with a delightful, youthful spirit and a most caring nature. After high school she was interested in physical therapy but started nursing school instead as she wasn’t ready to leave Hawaii. Plans changed after marriage and she began studying ceramics. Later she divorced and ultimately received her Masters in Fine Arts from UH.

Diane operated a pottery studio at The Foundry in Waikiki for years and many attended her classes at the YWCA. Diane’s jobs included selling sea shells by the seashore, vacuuming bugs out of pineapples and working at Cane Haul Road. For 23 years she sold classified ads for HNA where she met many friends and joined a canoe club.

Diane moved from Aiea to Everett, WA 10 years ago. She loved exploring Seattle’s vibrant arts community. Pursuing both her passion for cooking and for creating art by hand, she graduated from South Seattle’s Pastry & Specialty Baking College. She was a pastry chef until diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer in 2006, at which point she retired.

Given only months to live, Diane surprised everyone by responding well to numerous treatments for several years. She had a zest for life and so loved exploring the mainland and learning new things. She traveled extensively and was thrilled to make her dream trip to Japan and Korea.

This last year she focused on friends and family and her final 2 trips to Oahu. She showered us with love and we did everything to keep her happy, comfortable and surrounded by love and affection. She died at home in Everett, WA.

Diane is survived by her life partner, Ronnie Armstrong; her father, Richard Uehara; her sister, Karen Inn; her nieces, Denise Nakasone and Geri Lee Rita; her half-brother, Arick Emoto and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. Her Aunties, Nancy Hagiwara and Sally Shimabukuro, were especially close to her. Diane was preceded in death by her mother, Patsy Yasuda Emoto, and her sister, Paulette Embury.

Diane received extraordinary care from Howard West, MD, at Swedish Hospital in Seattle. Donations in her honor may be made to his nonprofit educational entity for lung cancer: GRACE, 4616 25th Ave. NE, #300, Seattle, WA 98105-4183.
