Obituary

 

Faith “Aunty Faith” Kauilani Nakoa Distajo

 

Faith “Aunty Faith” Kauilani Nakoa Distajo of Aiea, 80, passed away peacefully at Ka Punawai Ola on September 18, 2021 to be with God.  She was born in Honolulu on March 21, 1941 to John and Mary Nakoa. Faith grew up in Palolo Valley, attended Palolo Elementary, Kaimuki Intermediate, and graduated from Kaimuki High School in 1959.

 

“Aunty Faith,” which she liked to be called, had a beautiful heart of gold. She was a nice, loving, caring, and generous woman.  She blessed and helped so many, often putting the needs of others before her own.  Faith never hesitated to help whoever was in need.

 

Faith was a very hardworking woman, sometimes working two jobs at any given time.  She worked at the Waikiki International Marketplace and as a practical nurse at the Island Nursing Home.  She was also a very talented florist and worked at numerous flower shops but is most known to have worked for Flowers by Jr, Lou, and T, finally retiring in 2003.  She decorated for all occasions and others were often blessed by the beauty of her creations.

 

            God was the center of Faith’s life.  She loved God and loved serving Him.  She loved singing praise and worship songs, being a blessing whenever and wherever she sang.  Faith was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother who was always proud and supportive of her husband and all her ‘ohana.  Faith was greatly loved by her husband, children, family, friends and by everyone who met her.  And for everyone Faith met, she loved.  She will be sorely missed, but we know without doubt that she is at home in heaven with the Lord looking and smiling down at us saying, “Over the top for Jesus,” “God is Love,” and “I love you.”

 

Faith Distajo is survived by her husband, Antonio Distajo, Jr.; sons, Anthony Kehau (Lisa) Distajo, Alan Ka’imi Distajo; daughters, Alethea Ku’ulei Serna, Jessica Joy (Stephen) Zarriello; brother, Theodore “Buddy” Nakoa; 12 grandchildren, 5 great grandchildren, and numerous in-laws, nieces, nephews, and cousins.
