Obituary for Tonga Helu

Tonga Haapai Fakataha Helu died peacefully in John Muir Hospital on June 9, 2017 in Walnut Creek, CA at the age of 91.

Tonga was born on July 5, 1925 in Haapai, Tonga to Viliami and Seini Fakataha. She was married to Sioeli Manitisa Helu, the love of her life who joined our Heavenly Father years earlier in February 2008. Tonga was an immovable force with an undeniable passion and love for Christ and our Heavenly Father. Deeply rooted in the Tongan tradition, we could always count on Grandma Tonga to remind us who we are and where we came from. She adored her grandchildren and always enjoyed the time she spent with each one. Her spirit lives on thru her 6 remaining children, grand-children & great-grandchildren spread across the United States.

A viewing and funeral service is scheduled for 8am to 12pm on Friday, June 16, 2017 at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (3700 Concord Blvd, Concord, CA 94519) with the burial to follow at 1pm at Oakmont Memorial Park & Mortuary (2099 Relief Valley Rd, Lafayette, CA 94549) All are welcome to attend and celebrate Tonga’s life.
