Private scattering of ashes will be held at a later date. Kolohe, mischievous or naughty. From the beginning Brenda was Kolohe. The story goes that the neighbor called to say that she, at age 5, came to visit on her own. And so it goes the start of her Kolohe behavior. Always making friends with everyone. She will be fondly remembered as being personable, extroverted, animated, outgoing, and full of aloha. Brenda participated in several extra-curricular activities as a youngster which include girl scouts, piano lessons, softball, and Church choir. She help a variety of positions as an usher, a server, managed a recycling center, and as a traffic controller for the city. A lover of music, she enjoyed concerts and artist such as Earth Wind and Fire, Maxi Priest, and of course Willie K., who she's probably up there jamming with right now. Her love of 'Ōlelo Hawai'i music and culture inspired her to ensure that her son, 'Ōlino, be enrolled in the Hawaii Immersion Language Program. Remembered and cherished by all who knew her for following the path less taken and living life on her own terms.
