Maligi was a true and loving person. From taking the fall for her siblings, to protecting them from bullies. Never a day passed by where she wasn’t checking on her family. She mastered playing both the guitar and ukulele, and jammed out every opportunity she had. But when she wasn’t jamming, she roughing it up like one of the boys. Maligi was the only girl on an ALL boys rugby team. She was as real as it comes. Having no filter, and no fear to take up any big challenges that came her way, and partied like their was no tomorrow. Maligi brought joy to many residents in Hilo Hawaii and loved to watch and play with kids. We thank the lord up above for receiving her and giving her peace in the end. Her presence will be missed, but her memories will forever be cherished.
