She worked a variety of jobs before she started her career as a bank teller at the Bank of Hawaii. As a testament to her diligence and work ethic, she retired as an Executive Corporate Officer for the Bank of Hawaii when she retired. Her hobbies included raising orchids, cooking, yoga, bargain shopping, and spending quality time with her family and her many friends. Tita went to her heavenly home on June 15th at the age of 65.
