Wife of Rev. Adam Pali dies, 1903.

Mrs. Lilia Paaoao Pali has Passed on.

Lahaina, April 4th, 1903.

O Greatest one of the People, the Kuokoa. Please insert in an empty space of your konane board, the words appearing above, and it will be you that announces to the friends and companions of that Mrs. Lilia Paaoao Pali has died and has gone on the companionless path.

On the 28th of March, 1903, at the hour of 5:30 p. m., the great dread of the world arrived like a thief in the night, and swiftly took the living breath of the greatly loved mother.

Lilia Paaoao Pali was born of the loins of S. Poholopu and Nahooikaika (f) at Lahaina, Maui, in 1845. Her days in this world number 58 years and some months.

From the loins of Lilia Pali are five children still living, that being the Honorable Phillip Pali and four girls, who are grieving for their birth mother who silently passed on.

She was a mother who lived with patiently with her husband, to spread righteousness amongst the brethren who lived everywhere the two of them spoke the gospel. They lived at Waimea, Hawaii and at Waimea, Kauai for some years, and here in Lahaina for nearly thirty years. She was a member of the church of Waimea, a secretary for the Sunday School, and the Christian Endeavor Society [Ahahui Hooikaika Imipono Kristiano].

She was joined in the holy covenant of marriage with Rev. A. Pali in Lahaina, Maui, in Sept. 1862. It was like they were married for forty years and some months. “Marriage is good for all.”

To the typesetting boys goes my appreciation and to the Editor my endless affection.
