KELLER, Texas – Sharon “Kuualoha” Blake, 65, formerly of the area, passed away Tuesday, Oct. 15, 2013.

Kuualoha was born Dec. 14, 1947, in Hilo, Hawaii. She proudly attended Kamehameha schools. She married David Lynn Blake on Dec. 24, 1967, in Honolulu.

Kuualoha was a beautiful spirit who was loved by all who met her. She always was friendly and gracious despite years of physical pain and suffering. Ohana (family) always was her most important priority, and she loved to spend time with her mo’opuna (grandchildren). She was a woman of great faith, and she undoubtedly is just starting her work in heaven.

Survivors include her husband of 45 years, David Blake; her son, Shannon (Mary) Blake; daughter, U’ilani (Frank) Messenger; and her grandchildren, Brittany, Justin, Allison, Shelby, Hannah, and Brian.

She will be reunited in heaven with her mother, Sarah Vidinha; hanai parents, Mariah and John Apela; and her two baby boys, Shane and Willis.

Visitation was Thursday at Lucas Funeral Home in Keller. The service will be at 2 p.m. today at the funeral home. Interment will be at Bourland Cemetery in Keller.

Memorials have been established to the American Lung Association and Harris Methodist Hospital at Alliance, Fort Worth, Texas.
