Gwendolyn (Gandy) Molina, 96, of Pukalani, entered eternal life on March 6, 2021. She was born on April 21, 1924 in Paia, Maui.

A celebration of Gandy's life will be held on Monday, March 22, 2021 at Norman's Mortuary in Wailuku. Limited visitation will begin at 9:00AM and will include a prayer service at 11:00AM. Burial to follow at St. Joseph's Catholic Church Cemetery in Makawao.

Gandy is survived by daughters; Charlotte (Francis-deceased) Torres, Annette (Mark-deceased) Alexander, Mildred (Rex-deceased) Vogan and Ann(Clifford) Cua, daugter in law; Charmaine Molina, sisters; Sylvia Feiteira and Adeline Maldonado, 16 grandchildren, 36 great grandchildren and 10 great-great grandchildren.

Gandy was predeceased by her loving husband of 71 years; John Molina Sr., her son; John Molina Jr., great-grandson; Kawena Kim, four brothers and two sisters.
Gandy was the Molina family matriarch, taking care of and loving all of her family in many special ways. She taught us to love! Be strong! Work hard! Do what we enjoy! Be kind and generous! She was an extremely talented baker, quilter, gardener, singer and cook. She did all of those things with love, always saying, “I love my life! I love what I do.”

She was devoted to those she loved. Everyone who knew Gandy knew that her love was shown in the breakfasts she cooked for out of town family, the daily happy hours she and her husband, John, offered, the holiday parties she hosted for so many family and friends over the decades, her sewing and quilting she happily did for hours at a time. Her banana, mango and Portuguese breads were exceptional and enjoyed by all.

She also loved to travel, with Las Vegas being her favorite spot. She would spend hours at the slots, and usually won! She also visited family in Seattle, Oregon and Indiana, making it to a few of her grand and great grandchildren’s graduations there!

Gandy was known for her strong work ethic. She never stopped working until the last few years of her long life. She worked at the Cannery, Club Rodeo, and The Maui Beach Hotel for much of her life. When she wasn’t working there, she worked at home, always keeping busy with her chores around the house and in her yard. She would also go to her children’s and grandchildren’s homes to help them with their chores, and her family had a hard time keeping up with her!

She loved to sing with a beautiful alto voice. She sang for her husband’s band, The Molina Brothers. She also sang in St. Joseph’s choir. She loved singing Christmas carols! During her later years, she was quite the singer at Maui Adult Day Care, and then finally at Hale Makua, even face time singing with her family during the Covid shut down there.

Gandy lived her life doing what she loved and she was an inspiration to her family and friends.
