She was born in Waiakea on the big island to Manuel DeMello who was Portuguese and Lucy Lukela who was Hawaiian. She was the eldest of eight children to include brothers Manuel, Frank, Donald and Stanley, sisters Tura, Pearl and Margaret. In 1920 when Frances was 18 months old the family moved to Oahu. At the age of 13, her father died in a tragic accident which left the family devastated. Her father was the sole provider for the family. Frances being the eldest child, her life changed dramatically which would define her character, her personality, and the contagious influence she had on her family which spanned five generations during her lifetime. Frances left school to go to work during the day and took care of her brothers and sisters at night while her mother Lucy went to work. Frances didn’t have a choice. She had to help her mom so the family could survive. At a very young age our mother put others before herself because in her heart family was everything and to her it was the right thing to do. Frances led an ordinary life, but was an extraordinary woman. Her accomplishments were many, most notable, her relentless service to other people and her community. In 1946 she was chosen Lunalilo Community Association Mother of the year. Up until her passing Frances was the longest active member of the Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) serving her community for more than thirty-five years. She was a volunteer with the Honolulu Community Action Program (HCAP) for twenty-seven years. In May of 1983 while President of the Kailua Senior Citizen Club, Frances was chosen by United States Senator Daniel Akaka as his Senior Intern in Washington D. C. In 1990, Frances and her husband John Peoples were recognized as the Outstanding Senior Citizens of the Year while giving many hours to Angels on Wheels transporting cancer patients to and from the hospital for their treatments. Frances was also a volunteer for the Red Cross, March of Dimes, Salvation Army, Cancer Society, Kupuna for Kainalu Elementary, Cub Scout Den Mother, The Grandmothers Club, Daughters of Hawaii and St. Anthony’s Outreach Program. She was also a member of Kailua Hawaiian Civic Club, Young Ladies Institute of St. Anthony Church, Elks Club, Daughters of Hawaii and Kailua Canoe Club. Frances is survived by her three children, Theodore Rudolph Kaliko’okala Stancil, Douglas Randolph Mahealani Stancil and Kathleen Yvonne Muliwai Akau. She also has two step daughters, Mattie Luka (Deceased) and Jonarie Elena Correa, twenty-six grandchildren, fifty great-grandchildren, and eleven great-great grandchildren. So, Momma, thank you so much for being a beacon of light for our family, for always being there for us when we needed you, for your unconditional love, for teaching us life’s precious lessons, for always seeing the good in all of us and never judging us, but accepting us. We love and miss you! Aloha Your Ohana
