Estrella Pascua

Estrella Pascua

Feb. 15, 1940 – June 24, 2021

Estrella “Esther” Visitacion Pascua, 81

Estrella Pascua, who is better known as Esther, departed peacefully at the tranquil Hale of Hospice Maui on June 24, 2021. Estrella was born on Feb. 15, 1940, in Bacarra, Ilocos Norte, Philippines. She moved to Maui in 1960 and briefly lived in Kula, before moving to the plantation settlement of “Happy Valley”, in Wailuku for 16 years and in 1980, Estrella moved to
her final residence in Kahului.

Estrella retired from Maui Land and Pineapple, which was her first and only employer. She began as a pineapple picker in the fields of Hali’imaile before completing her career with Maui Land and Pineapple working in the Kahului cannery. She took pride and enjoyed her work, and though the work was difficult she never complained and always considered her co-workers as friends and family.

She was extremely humble, modest, kind, skilled in having a joyful conversation and had the ability to befriend everyone she met. Family was very important in her life. Circumstances in life provided her one surviving child, in which she was then blessed with a daughter-in-law of her dreams. She was again blessed with ethical and moral grandchildren that she always longed for, and was ultimately blessed with great-grandchildren that only a few are fortunate to experience in their lifetime.

Her cheerful smile and laughter with her family made her life complete and most of all she felt proud of all their accomplishments. She was a devout member of the Maui Evangelical Church, in which she embraced the readings and teachings of the Bible, paving way to her ultimate home of Heaven. Her enticing smile,
pleasant demeanor, selflessness and cheerful personality will be greatly missed, but forever

Estrella “Esther”, is survived by her son: Ray A. Pascua, wife Madelyne. Grandchildren: Paul Anthony Pascua, Katrina Cassandra Bio, husband Darrel, and Michella Kristina Maguddayao, husband Ralph “Alginn”. Great grandchildren: Dylan Michael Bio, Alayna Miyanna Maguddayao, and Alijah Matthew Maguddyao. Brothers: Fred Visitacion(Linda), Glenn Visitacion(Mena). Sister: Gene Visitacion. She is predeceased by her beloved husband, Hospicio Pascua. Parents: Juan and Luisa Visitacion. Brother: Willie Visitation (Balbina).

Public visitacion will be held on Friday, July 23, 2021, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Norman’s Mortuary, 105 Wai’ale Road, Wailuku.

A private burial will be held on Saturday, July 24, 2021, in which the family appreciates your consideration to allow the family to exclusively bid farewell during this time.
