Lea H. Apo
Lea H. “Nani” Apo passed away on August 6, 2020
surrounded by her family.
Nani was the 3rd of 4 children born on January 1, 1951, to
Benjamin Sr. and Lauae Kaneaiakala in Honolulu, Hawaii. On March 13, 1996, she
married Clayton Apo Sr. in Honolulu, Hawaii and later moved to Eldorado,
Wisconsin with her three grandchildren.
Anybody who knew Nani will always remember her Aloha
Spirit. Her infectious
laugh, big hug and kiss hello, and her kind smile. She got
to travel while she worked side by side with her husband Clayton for Rabin
Brothers Auctioneers. She enjoyed spending time with her family, bowling,
playing cards, tequila sunrises, playing on her i-Pad, Hallmark Christmas
movies, and taking care of her beloved fur babies ·· and grandchildren.
She is survived by her husband Clayton Sr., five children:
Monica Nahinu, Hawaii, Andre “Kalani” (Stephanie) Kaikana, of Hawaii,
Marissa (Stacy) Futa, Melanie Apo, and Clayton (Sara) Jr. Twelve grandchildren:
Uilani (Chris) Kaikana, Ipolani Kaikana, Leolani Kaikana, Caleb Kimball-Apo,
Stacia Futa, Tristen Futa, Shane Futa, Noble Rodriguez, Kai Rodriguez, Kailani
Apo, Aaden Kaikana, and Gunnar Kaikana. 3 greatgrandchildren: Logan Futa,
Hamikalani Futa, and Kalaokalani Medernach. She is also survived by her
siblings: Benjamin “Jr.” (Karen) Kaneaiakala, of Hawaii, Wesley
(Debbie) Kaneaiakala, of Hawaii, Sarah (Charlie) Becker, of Wisconsin.
She was preceded in death by her father Benjamin Sr.,
mother Lauae, son Abraham Jr., and beloved chihuahua, Nahoa.
There will be no public services held. Instead a
celebration of life will be held for Nani in the future with her family back
home in Hawaii.
Special thank you to St. Agnes in Fond du Lac for providing
great care for Nani in her time of need.
