Magdalena Patricia (Cabus) Tremaine

September 6, 1942 ~ January 20, 2021 (age 78)


With great sadness we announce the unexpected passing of our mother Magdalena “Maggie” Tremaine, 78, of Lihue, Kauai. She was born in Honolulu and moved to Kauai in the 1960s. Maggie was an avid golfer and bowler. She was a member of the Mokihana Bowling League and a member of the Fil/Am Golf Club on Kauai. She loved sports and encouraged her children and grandchildren to participate in school sports. She was mostly known for her generosity and hospitality for her family, friends and acquaintances.

Her personality was reflected in her beautiful smile. She worked as a bartender for the old Kauai Surf Hotel for decades. Her last job was working for the City and County of Kauai driving the Handi-Van.

She was preceded by her husband John K. Tremaine Jr. and by her brothers and sisters: Carole Mole, William Cabus, Lucio Cabus Jr. and Irma Tam.  She is survived by her brother Phillip Tam. She is also survived by her children Victoria Ann (Amos) Tamura, Clayton Paul (Mary Ann) delos Santos, Brenda (Eddie) Viernes, Karen delos Santos, Nadine Tam-Ito (Solomon), Rochelle (Barry) Stark-White, Edward (Sandra) Kanda Jr. and Roxanne (Keoki) Palau; step-children, Jaeden"Tita" Kajiwara, John III, Jaeson & Kaimana "Mana Man". She is also survived by 20 grandchildren, 21 great-grandchildren, and one great great-grandson plus many cousins, nieces and nephews.

She passed away peacefully at Pali Momi Medical Center on January 20, 2021 with her daughter Victoria by her side. She will be greatly missed but never forgotten as a pillar of our Ohana.
