Faith was born in the Philippines and emigrated to Hawaii in the 1960s when her parents were called to serve as Filipino language missionaries for the Southern Baptist Convention.
From an early age, Faith displayed great skill at the violin and travelled across the country with her high school orchestra. As a teen she went on a mission trip with her father and brother to the Philippines and was a dedicated Christian throughout her life. She was talented in the culinary arts, and was a gracious hostess. Faith was intelligent, creative and thoughtful, a woman of both refinement and also down-to-earth realness. If you ever needed anything, she would always be there for you with said thing, and more to spare.
For Faith, family was everything. Loyalty was her calling card, her generosity was boundless, laughter was never far, and her smile was simply unforgettable. For every hat she wore in life–wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunty, co-worker, friend–Faith went above and beyond to show how much she cared, and made each individual feel important. Love was unconditional. You were always welcome at Faith's table. Her heart outsized her diminutive frame a hundred times over. Her eventual disability could not contain these qualities, but rather amplified them and bore witness to her innate character.
At her core Faith was a spiritual woman who embodied her name with a servant heart and love for Jesus Christ. She knew she would be reunited with her mother Josefina and older sister in Heaven.
Faith is survived by her loving daughters Amy (Micah) and Ashley; husband Gene; grandchildren Kairi, Rhylan, Azariah, Keaton and Matthias; her father David; her four younger siblings and their spouses; and 11 nieces and nephews.
