Evelyn Pihana Loaaole passes on, 1924.

GONE ON THE PATH OF NO RETURN IS MRS. EVELYN PIHANA LOAAOLE

Mr. Solomon Hanohano, Aloha kaua:—Please allow me a little space of our pride, which will flash quickly the parcel of tears placed above so that the many friends of my dearly beloved wahine who has gone on the road of no return will see, as well as the end of it all.  To all from the great, wide Hawaii, island of Keawe all the way to Niihau, the island that snatches away the sun, Mrs. Evelyn Pihana Loaaole has gone, just as the Holy Book says,…

MRS. EVELYN PIHANA LOAAOLE

…the life of man is but a puff of smoke which appears and disappears, it is God who giveth and He who then taketh away. Blessed be his name.

After being ill for four days, my dear wife left me, her kane, and our hanai child. On the 27th of Feb., she was taken to the Queen’s Hospital by the doctor, and that evening at 7 o’clock she grew weary of this life, and her spirit returned to He who created it, and her body went under the care of Silva, and on the first of March her body was taken out for the family, the acquaintances and friends of my dear wife to view.

I, her husband, give my thanks to all the family and to the association, Ka Hale o na Alii o Hawaii, for your helping me from the watching over the body of my wife; and to the friends who came and stayed awake through that night with us, and also for the gifts of flowers.

Please accept this expression of thanks, and may the Lord bless us all with aloha.

Me with sadness,

CHARLES MAKEPA LOAAOLE,

and the Ohana.

On the death of Beniamina Kaiminaauao Poepoe, and so much more, 1909.

BENIAMINA KAIMINAAUAO POEPOE HAS DEPARTED THIS LIFE.

In the afternoon of this Monday, July 11, the life of Beniamina Kaiminaauao Poepoe returned once more to He who first gave him to us in the year 1898. He was forty-one years old when he passed. He was born in Waipio, Hamakua, Hawaii, and that is his Aina where he was raised until he was older. He was fetched by their older brother [Joseph Mokuohai Poepoe], that being the current editor of this newspaper, to go live with him in North Kohala, Hawaii; and Beniamina lived with him while being instructed in the English Language. Later he came to Oahu nei. He lived in Laie and married a woman there. They had children, but only two of their daughters are still living. His wife passed to the other side first, and he was left with their daughters, and his older sibling, and his younger brother, Gulstan Kiliona Poepoe, one of the Owners of the News magazine, “Ka Lanakila,” which is now in publication. He was an Elder [Lunakahiko] of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints [ka Ekalesia o Iesu Karisto o na Poe Hoano o na La Hope nei]. He was a candidate in the Labor Party [Aoao Limahana] for representative of the Fifth District, in the past year. His field of expertise is engineering.

And while he was working in that position on one of the water pumps of the Kahuku plantation, an accident befell him when he fell off from the pump house which he climbed on, and he broke the bones of his left leg. Continue reading

Queen’s Hospital trustees and the Bishop Museum, 1886.

DECISION OF QUEEN’S HOSPITAL TRUSTEES.

 A special meeting of the Board of Trustees of the Queen’s Hospital was held this morning in the Chamber of Commerce room. The object of the meeting was to consider the advisableness and feasibility of transferring the antiquities and curios left to the Hospital by the will of the late Queen Emma to the Hon. Chas. R. Bishop, who is about to open a national museum. Mr. Kunuiakea, one of the heirs of the Queen Emma estate and part claimant of the curios, consents to give his interest in them to Mr. Bishop for the purpose mentioned, on the condition that the Queen’s Hospital also give their interest. It having been the wish of the late Queen Emma to have a national museum in Honolulu, and such wish having been specified in her will (signed but not witnessed), the Trustees of the Queen’s Hospital have decided to deed to Mr. C. R. Bishop all the curios and antiquities left them by the will of the deceased queen, on the condition that all the ancient relics left by the late High Chiefess Pauahi Bishop, be also given to the museum.

Beginnings of the Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum, 1886.

Museum of Antiquities.

A special meeting of the Board of Trustees of the Queen’s Hospital was held yesterday. It was called to consider the question of conveying the Hawaiian antiquities and curios, devised to the Trustees by the will of the late Queen Emma, to the Hon. C. R. Bishop for a projected public museum. Mr. Bishop had sometime ago formed the purpose of founding a museum of Hawaiian antiquities, with the collection of his late consort, Princess Bernice Pauahi Bishop, as the nucleus. Continue reading

Mrs. Kiliwehi Hoapili Kaauwai passes on. 1873.

Mrs. Kiliwehi Kaauwai Dies.

On Wednesday, the 5th of November, the breath of this descendant of chiefs left her, after being sick for a long while. Perhaps some four months ago, she travelled to East Maui, and a short while after she reached there, it was heard that she was ill, and she remained in this state until returning to Honolulu, and at the request of her friends, she was taken to the Queen’s Hospital. There, Dr. McKibbin [Kauka Makibine], said that she had sickness that was curable if she followed closely the Doctor’s advice. She remained at the Hospital for a number of weeks, and when it was seen that she was becoming very weak, she was taken by her royal companion, Mrs. P. B. Bishop, to live with her these past days, and this was Kiliwehi’s last home where she dwelt until her death. This young chiefess is indeed one of the descendants of rulers, according to what we hear, of Kamehameha of Maui, who was called Kamehameha Ailuau; and not as was mistakenly heard, that she was a direct descendant of Kamehameha I. She died at the age of 33. At her funeral, she was escorted by her friends and her husband [Hoapili Kaauwai], and at the edge of her grave, her husband heart let out its regret with:

Adorned by a lei of pride
In friendless lands,
The link that has been severed,
From the companion—O Hoapili—e,
Much Aloha.

Kiliwehi Hoapili Kaauwai, 1873.

[Found under: “Local News.”]

Last Saturday, brought to Honolulu from Wailuku was one of the royal women who had gone on a tour of the world, that being Mrs. Kiliwehi Hoapili Kaauwai, with an ailing body, and here she is now at the Queen’s Hospital being treated. She had many a friend when she was in good health, but now, she perhaps is lacking in this medicine.
