Centenarian Celebrated

By Ponciano Raguindin

On May 19, Ethel Honda celebrated her 100th birthday with a small gathering and with family via zoom. Ethel moved to Molokai from Oahu 13 years ago to live with her daughter and son-in-law Jenni and Allen Ashitomi. She’s had many adventures working from the age of 14 at Libby’s and CPC Cannery, sewing and working as a sales person at various stores at Waikiki and King Street, nanny and babysitting jobs, and finally working at her late husband’s restaurant; Honda Delicatessen in Liliha. What a life and what a blessing to have “Obachan” here with us on Molokai!
