Kevin Ebata - Described as a man who believed in the workings of democracy, state House Sergeant-at-Arms Kevin Ebata died yesterday Dec 31, 2001 after battling cancer. He was 45. "He just devoted his life to the legislative process," said House Chief Clerk Patricia Mau-Shimizu. "He really believed in lawmaking and in the democratic institution." Ebata, who began his career in the House clerk's office 20 years ago as an accountant, had been sergeant-at-arms for about 14 years, Mau-Shimizu said. It is one of four positions that is filled by majority vote of House members. "Kevin was really proud to be part of the Sergeant-at-Arms Office," Mau-Shimizu said. The Sergeant-at-Arms Office's duties include providing security for offices and chambers of the state House. "He was an integral part of the operations," Mau-Shimizu said. "Yes, he will be missed, but not only by the staff here, but by the House members, lobbyists, everyone." Assistant House Sergeant-at-Arms Frank Arakaki will be acting sergeant-at-arms for the 2002 session. Ebata was also the president of the National Legislative Services and Security Association, an organization of sergeants-at-arms, security personnel and support services staff for state legislatures across the country. Mau-Shimizu said that Tony Beard Jr., chief sergeant-at-arms with the California Senate and member of the organization, came to Hawaii last week to present two association awards to Ebata. Ebata's survivors include his wife, Kelly, and his 8-year-old daughter.          [SB 1/1/2002]

Services: 10 a.m. Saturday at the Church of the Crossroads, 1212 University Ave. Aloha attire. No flowers.

 

Peggie Silverman Ehlke's legacy is reflected in the authenticity of the projects she handled as curator and registrar of the Mission Houses Museum.  "She was quite important in furthering the Hawaiian culture in her area," Lee Wild said of her friend and former co-worker, who died Oct. 18, 2001 at age 81. Ehlke, whose late mother, Violet Silverman, also worked at Mission Houses Museum, is fifth generation of a kama'aina family. "It was her mother that got her involved in the Mission Houses Museum," Wild recalled. Ehlke's goal in restoration, acquisition and creating exhibits was authenticity. It was a quest she always regarded as a challenge, an adventure, said friends. In 1970, for example, Ehlke started a project to build a duplicate of the Ramage Press, which had printed the first Hawaiian language book. The press disappeared after being taken to Maui for schoolbook printing. She and Albertine Loomis, great-granddaughter of the first Mission printer, worked for two years to track down a press to copy before discovering one in the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Mich., that was validated by the Smithsonian Institution. Ehlke supervised the building of the duplicate press by Honolulu Tech and in 1972, on the 150th anniversary of the printing of the Hawaiian text, the press performed flawlessly. She is survived by husband, Edmund; sons, Douglas and Kenneth Schleif; daughters, Marjorie Hodson and Barbara Rogers; brother, Stafford Silverman; sisters, Jane Silverman and Barbara Schaefer; seven grandchildren, and one great-grandchild. A 10 a.m. service today will be held at Church of the Crossroads on University Avenue.  [Adv 27/10/2001]

Myra English, 'Hawai'i's champagne lady,' dead at 68. They called her "Hawai'i's Champagne Lady," because of her signature hit, "Drinking Champagne." And, indeed, singer Myra English, who died Thursday at age 68, is being recalled as one who was always as effervescent as the bottled bubbly of which she sang. English, whose formal name was Myra English Gibbs, was "totally unique, a one-of-a-kind," said singer-composer Jay Larrin. "She sang exactly what she loved and she rattled the chandeliers whenever she performed. She just knew how to have fun." "Her 'Drinking Champagne' will live on forever," said Cha Thompson, vice president of Tihati Productions, who occasionally hired English to perform at functions. "She was one entertainer who got along with everybody ... and everybody loved Myra and her sexy, gravelly voice." Melveen Leed, her longtime buddy, said she made frequent visits to the Queen's Medical Center to see English, who had been ailing for months. "Music was her life and she put the sparkle in 'Drinking Champagne,' " Leed said. "I will really miss her; she was always happy-go-lucky and I've never seen her sad. She would always be the one to make other people happy and we often talked about doing a concert together. She came to visit me a couple of months ago at Chai's Island Bistro, and she just lit up when she got up to sing." Said veteran entertainer Don Ho: "Myra was one of the free spirits; she just loved to sing for people.Whenever you got her on a stage, she wanted to stay forever because she loved working before an audience. She just had that Gabby (Pahinui), Sonny (Chillingworth) spirit; always sharing. And I thought her voice was just beautiful; she always brought down the house whenever I called her on stage to sing." English was an old-school vocalist who endeared herself to audiences at the old Blue Dolphin Room of the Outrigger Waikiki Hotel in the '60s and '70s, when Hawaiian music was undergoing an identity crisis, swayed by altering influences. English, however, maintained her traditional Hawaiian approach, often adding her kolohe (rascally) nature into her music. Besides club and recording work, English also was a regular guest on the "Hawai'i Calls" radio show, made appearances at Club Polynesia and the 'Ilikai Hotel, and worked at the State Legislature. English was born on Feb. 22, 1933, in Makawao, Maui, and graduated from Maui High School. She attended Honolulu Business College and Peterson's School of Business in Seattle. Services will be held in Honolulu and on Maui. Friends may call from 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday at Diamond Head Mortuary, where a prayer service will be at 7 p.m. On Maui, visitation will be from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday at Holy Rosary Church in Pa'ia, at 954 Baldwin Ave., where Mass will be celebrated at noon; burial will follow at Maui Memorial Park.
