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.

PAUL G. PHILLIPS Aug. 21 1922-Oct. 16 2016 Parents Manuel and Gussie Phillips Paul grew up in Kapahulu and graduated from Roosevelt High School in 1941. After graduation, Paul volunteered to serve as a colonist on Jarvis Island in the Central Pacific. The U.S. colonization of Jarvis and other Line Islands began in 1935 and included 130 young men from Hawai'i, who would later become known as the Hui Panala'au. Following the attack on Pearl Harbor, eight of the colonists including Paul were stranded on Enderbury and Jarvis Islands until February 1942, when the "Forgotten Eight" were rescued by the U.S. Coast Guard. The colonization project ended quietly and Paul joined the Army and served in Okinawa. Following his discharge, Paul attended aeronautical training in California. Returning to Hawai'i in 1947, Paul joined the Army National Guard and was sent to San Marcos, Texas for flight school. There he married Patricia Lei Knapp. Pat and Paul returned to Hawai'i and Paul went to work as a lead mechanic for Hawaiian Airlines. He later became a full-time National Guardsman and had a distinguished career as a helicopter and fixed-wing pilot, eventually becoming known as "The Governor's Pilot" for having been the pilot of choice for Governors Quinn, Burns and Ariyoshi. Paul retired as a Lt. Colonel in 1977. During the latter part of Paul's retirement, he worked with Noelle Kahanu and others towards gaining State and Federal recognition for the efforts of the Hui Panala'au. Paul was the last known living Hui Panala`au member. Paul and his family have lived in Kailua since 1953. He coached Little League, made fish nets, crabbed, picked 'opihi, played golf, made feather lei, and was a charter member (1954) of the community club Hui Kaikunane, still in existence today. Paul's wife, Pat, and their children, Patti-Paul (Val), Merrillyn (Mario), Michael (Rosie), and Gordon, and his grandchildren, Nakoa, Kahele, Ana, and Kaimana, will forever love him and miss him.
