THAT OLD MOTHER OF WAIKIKI, MRS. N. H. KANAE, PASSES ON.
At 4 o’clock in the morning of Saturday of last week, Mrs. Ninia Haihailauahiku Kanae grew weary of this worldly life at the home of her granddaughter, Mrs. Eva Laupoli Perkins, on Liholiho Street in Makiki, at ninety or more years of elderly age, and with her passing to the other side, it would seem that no more are the old-time locals who accompanied the sea spray of Waikiki.
According to her genealogy, she was a daughter of Kalani Aliiloa, the granddaughter of Kane Laauuli and Barenaba Okuu, and a daughter of David Piikoi who died two years ago. She was born, according to the story, during the reign of Kamehameha II (Liholiho) in this town, and she was an attendant in the gatherings of the chiefs during the time that Kamehameha IV and V ruled as king.
With her passing, she left behind her daughter, Mrs. Elizabeth Kahookano with two grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren, along with many companions and friends, who will always remember her.
At 3 o’clock in the afternoon of this past Sunday, her funeral was held at the home of the family on Kalia Road, Waikiki, and her remains were put to rest for all times at the Kawaiahao Cemetery. The pallbearers were the children of Kahanamoku and Paoa.
