Cleta Mae Young
CLETA MAE YOUNG Age 79, of Waianae, died at home on September 19, 2015 surrounded by her family. Cleta arrived in Waianae in early 1959 where she met and married Don just over 51 years ago. She has touched so many lives. She was far away from her family (in North Dakota) so she made her own family - she Hanai'd everyone! She would give the shirt off her back to help others. She cared for just about every stray she could, dog, cat, bird, cow, donkey She took care of other's children when they couldn't, their parents when they couldn't and thought of everyone as her child or sibling. She was a great role model of how to love unconditionally and how to give. She is survived by her husband, Don; daughter, Joleen Dias (Tony); son, Scotty Moore (Sharon); grandchildren, Joni Dias, Alissa Ka'awaloa (Paka), Burton Moore and Kawena Caldwell; great-grandchildren, Zechariah & Hali'a Ka'awaloa; sister, Karon Hacanson; many nieces and nephews; hanai family, Sherry Smith, Lesslie DeRego, Robby Medeiros, Susanna Caldwell, Tina Gnagy, Pam Gnagy, Jan Gnagy, Jesse Collins and so many more that called her mom, aunty, tutu and sister. A small private ceremony will be held on Wednesday 9/23/15 5:30 pm at Makaha Surfing Beach (Scotty's House). In honor of her memory please make a donation to a local animal shelter or the Veterans Movement Foundation in her name.
Our deepest condolences to the family and friends of the deceased
