KELCEY-CHRISTINE MIKALA KALUA CAMBRA
Kelcey-Christine Mikala Kalua Cambra (61) was born and raised in Kailua and Honolulu, O'ahu to Wade Nowlin Reeves and Rose Mae Pi'ilani Medeiros. The eldest of three children, she attended Kamehameha Schools. Shortly after her graduation in 1978, Kelcey began her 40 year career at Kamehameha Schools, culminating in her retirement in 2019 from her position as a Quality Assurance Manager for Kamehameha Admissions. As a haumana of Halau Na Pua Lei o Likolehua, she treasured learning the art of hula and performing to the Hawaiian music she loved so much. Her affinity for the arts and Hawaiian culture continued throughout her life as she enjoyed watching musicals, procuring Hawaiian books, and spending time with her beloved family. In recent years, Kelcey's greatest joy was being "Nana'' to her grandchildren with whom she visited often and laughed regularly. Her courageous battle against cancer was undeniably admirable; Kelcey passed away at her home in Kailua, surrounded by her dearest loved ones. Kelcey is survived by her husband of 38 years, William Cambra; daughter Nohealani (Cameron) Phillips; son Kainoa (Elisa) Cambra; grandson Aidan Phillips, and granddaughters Piper & Quinn Phillips; mother Rose Mae Reeves; sister Jodi Mae (Roger) Kanaka'ole; brother Arthur (Nikki) Reeves; a multitude of cousins; mother-in-law Lei Cambra; sisters and brothers-in-law Johnnie Mae Cambra, Brian (Julie) Cambra, Danette (Kaimi) Bennett, Leslie (Leo) Tolentino, Suzette (Frank) Cho, & Keahi (Katie) Cambra; and numerous nieces & nephews.
