HONOLULU - The Office of the Lieutenant Governor today announced that Lt. Governor James “Duke” Aiona’s mother, Frances Helena Lum Aiona, passed away due to natural causes on Tuesday, November 23, 2010, at the age of 93.

“My mom was my hero and our entire ‘ohana is deeply saddened by her passing,” said Lt. Governor Aiona. “She was an extraordinary woman and a compassionate, tireless educator who instilled in me a lifelong love for learning and mentorship. I am at a loss for words to describe how important she was in my life and the lives of countless others. During this difficult time, Vivian and I humbly ask for privacy while we make final arrangements.”

In lieu of flowers, the Lt. Governor’s family suggests a donation to the Reid J.K. Richards Foundation, which was Frances Aiona’s favorite charity. The foundation was established on behalf of the Lt. Governor’s nephew Reid, who passed away at the age of 33. He was survived by his wife and his two young children. The foundation assists those who have lost a mother or father to cope with the grieving process.
