Alice Akimi Hanna

Alice Akimi Hanna was born November 25, 1926 in Makawele (now Kaumakani), Kauai, grew up on the Kekaha Mauka Sugar Plantation (Hukipo Camp), and passed away peacefully at home on March 23, 2011 in Huntington Beach, CA at the age of 84 after a 10-year battle with pulmonary fibrosis.  She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend to all.  An avid crossword puzzle solver with love for her rose garden, Alice was a petite woman with a huge spirit and generous heart.  She was preceded in death by her parents Yujiro and Sekiyo Nakano, brothers Kiyoto and Takuichi Nakano, and sister Shigemi Tomita. She is survived by her beloved husband James A. Hanna, son James B. & his wife Colleen, daughter Lisa Hanna & her son Cristopher James, daughter Ren (Linda) Hanami, and sister Janet Itsuko Senaha. A private memorial will be held at her home on April 3, 2011. In lieu of flowers Alice would have preferred donations made to The Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation (www.pulmonaryfibrosis.org/888-733-6741).
