Carol later served as an I.C.E.S. director from 1976-1981 and hosted the First International Cake Exploration Society Show in Hawai’i with Jerry by her side in 1978. Her greatest accomplishment was during the aftermath of Hurricane Iwa when she prepared and served over 9,000 meals free of charge to the residents of Kaua’i at their Traveler’s Den Restaurant.

She is survived by her four children Frank (Gene), Lynn (Robert), Kerry (Michelle), hanai son Edward, grandchildren and great-grandchildren Frankie (Renee), Ariel (Kuulei), Raquel (Andrew), Joshua, Monica (Richard), Jaquelyn (Dre), Kanani (Victoria), Christine, Matthew, Kalei (Gina), Tiare (Maeli), Jayven, Kaedyn, Kiyani, Liann (Gary), Haley, Annalyn, Gary, Qiana, Keala (Brandy), Keara, Prima (Steven), JJ (Bronte), Maliyah, Noah, Khya, Shanelle (Ku’i), Anuhea (Juni), Aleigha, Lawakua, Cullen (Lacy), Galen (Kiana), Lexcy, Kenui, Nakoa, Kayle (Ana), Kayzen, Keegan, Kalehua (Joe), Kaua, Jamie (Brycen), Bryce, Telissa (Kekoa), Mahina, and Hulali, great-great grandchildren Kamalu, Kaizo, Nohealani, Faith, Guinevere, George, Samuel, Lennox, Zoe, Isla, Jeremiah, Kysen, Mason, Haven, Peyton, and Akela, siblings Donald (Kathy), Patricia (Claybourn), Beverly, numerous family members and dear friends.
