Death announcement of Mary Ahia Naone, 1900.

SHE HAS PASSED, SHE IS GONE

On the night of the 7th of May, 1900, Mrs. Mary Ahia Naone left this life, and peacefully went on the path of no return, auwe! aloha for the parent, the companion, aloha for parent, the companion, the warm-bodied parent; it is he who creates and he who destroys, it is he who gives and he who destroys, and he who gives and he who takes away; Praised be your grace, O “Amazing one.”

She was born at Kema-u, Hamakua, Hawaii. From the loins of Abela Kapule and Palulu, her parents, on June 11, 1842, and when she passed she was 53 years old and some months. She was a true christian, a genial and kind and welcoming mother with an open heart, and she has left behind her grandchild and her partner, remember the grace and aloha of the one True God. Amen.
