Our loving sister, Alexandra Halasey, passed away on June 26, 2022. She was born on April 15, 1957.
She was a devoted family member and will be missed by her family and many friends. She grew up in Southern California and moved to Kaua‘i in 1983.
As a college graduate she found work at the Coco Palms Hotel in the accounting department, and later helped her brother, Joe Halasey, run his fruit stand on the North Shore. She was an excellent caregiver to her elderly parents, and in the last few years enjoyed her retirement living in Kilauea.
She is survived by sisters Janet Kutkowski and Blair Church, brother Joe Halasey, seven nieces and nephews and one grand-nephew.
We will miss her dearly.
