Mae M. Pimental
Mae M. Pimental95, of Honolulu, passed away peacefully, at home, on September 5, 2021. She was born on March 17, 1926. Daughter to Madeline Rodrigues Garcia of Hana, Maui and Edward Carson of South Carolina. Mae was raised by her grandmother, Mary Rodrigues Garcia, in Kalihi. She attended Fern Elementary and Kalakaua Intermediate until 8th grade, where the class was asked to sew parachutes during the war. In exchange, they were offered sewing lessons at a vocational school.

Mae was an usherette at the Hawaii Theatre, where she met her husband, Manny Pimental. Manny told his friends, "I'm going to marry that girl". They were married for 58 years. They were blessed with five children: Ranee, Charlene, Dennis, Deborah, and Cindy. Mae was a homemaker and a gracious hostess. She would sew all her children's school clothes, as well as shirts and pants for Manny. She enjoyed baking and was a wonderful cook.

In 1964, neighborhood friend, Ethel Terada, invited Mae to work with her at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel's Monarch Room and Hawaiian Village. Mae worked there for 23 years, and she loved every moment of it.

Mae lived faithfully and strongly believed in prayer. She was part of the St. Patrick Catholic Church and attended mass regularly. Mae was a beautiful person, inside and out, from her beautiful smile, to her kind and generous heart. She would always put others first and found the good in everyone. Mae also adored children. Always a good sport, she loved laughing and playing with her grandchildren. She was the glue that kept our family together.

We are truly blessed to have had her in our lives for so long. She has touched so many lives and made so many memories. She will forever be missed. Survived by Ranee Peneku, Charlene (Lew) Kamanu, Deborah Reuter, and Cindy Pimental. Predeceased by Manual Pimental Jr. (husband), Dennis Pimental (son), Goebel "Blue" Williams (brother), Dennis Peneku (son-in-law), and William Reuter (son-in-law).
