ʻOfa Kinikini Memorial Fund

Kaipā ʻOfa KiʻUiha Sateki Kinikini, also known by loved ones as simply ʻOfa Kinikini, leaves behind seven beautiful children. One of whom is in critical care at Primary Children's Hospital. My sister was a charitable person, giving freely of her time to help others. She is described as outgoing, tenacious, and free-spirited.

On the evening of July 25th, 2016, ʻOfa was riding on the passenger side when the vehicle she was in was struck by a FrontRunner passenger train.  She was due this month with her seventh child at the time. She was rushed to the hospital where doctors performed an emergency C-Section on her. Fortunately, the baby survived, but ʻOfa did not make it.

We appreciate any help. It pains me as I write this. We just want to thank family, friends and strangers abroad for your words of sympathy and support. I'd like to thank the bystander who gave my sister CPR. I know ʻOfa would of done the same thing to any stranger in need of help. Our deepest thanks also to the doctors, nurses, and staff at University of Utah hospital and Primary Children's, who desperately tried to keep her alive. And for delivering her daughter.
