Death of Helen Lanmoy Apo, 1909.


To the Editor of the Kuokoa, Please allow me some space: At five o’clock in the morning of Sunday, December 12, Miss Helen Lanmoy Apo left this life, the first-born daughter of Mrs. Nancy Apo of Iao, Maui. She was ill with typhoid fever for almost a month.

She was born at Iao, Maui, on the 18th of November, 1888. She was educated at the boarding school of Kamehameha. She graduated from that school in the year 1907, and went to teachers’ school for two years. She received her diploma from the teachers’ school this past June, and she was placed as a teacher at Lahaina school in September, and she was one of the Sunday school teachers for the children at Wainee Church in Lahaina.

The mother with her heart filled with sadness gives her appreciation to the intimates who helped her when her child was sick, and all the intimates who assisted in the various ways, and so too to the friends who showed their aloha and remembrance with floral gifts.

Honolulu, December 16, 1909.
