Irene Vierra Cambra, 90, of Kahului, passed away on April 11, 2019 at Islands Hospice in Kahului. She was born on July 15, 1928 in Lahaina, Maui.
Visitation will begin at 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday, May 1, 2019, at Christ the King Church, memorial mass at 11 a.m., and urn burial at 1 p.m. at the Maui Veteran’s Cemetery in Makawao.
Irene retired as the secretary at Christ the King Church and had also been the church organist for 64 years.
When she was 12, she learned to play the organ as a student at Sacred Hearts School in Lahaina and played at Catholic churches and mission churches until her marriage in 1952. After she married and moved to Kahului she was asked to play during masses at Christ the King as early as 1955. There she directed her choir for many years, was the organist for morning masses, played for hundreds of weddings, funerals, graduations, and until her passing played with the Tongan choir during the Sunday evening mass.
She served as a church secretary, parish council member, served on many church committees, was the music director, and taught music to the Christ the King pre-school children for 16 years.
Irene was instrumental in starting the Christ the King Sweet Bread project where she co-chaired the bake sale monthly for many years.
She was honored in 2006 and 2018 as the Christ the King Living Island Treasure and in 2014 Sacred Hearts School in Lahaina honored her as their Living Legend. Irene was the true example of holiness and faith.
She was pre-deceased by her husband, Herman Cambra; survived by sons, Glenn Edward Cambra, Dwight Stephen Cambra, and Robert Wayne (Moon Hee) Cambra; daughter, Karen (Clarence Halona) Laborte; grandchildren, Ailina (James) Tagupa-Laborte, and Jacey Laborte; and 1 great-grandchild, Thaddeus-James Tagupa.

We express our deepest sympathy to our beloved Irene's family. May God's love give them comfort and peace during this sorrowful time. Irene was a precious friend in Christ and very honorable and inspirational. She was a beautiful Christian, kind, loving, talented musician, loved by everyone and served the Lord in so many ways. We are thankful to God for her life. May our Lord give Irene eternal peace in His Kingdom "What eye has not seen, and ear not heard, and what has not entered the human heart, what God has prepared for those who love him" (1 Cor 2: 9-10 ). It was a privilege to know her, we love her dearly and will miss her deeply.
In God's peace, love, blessings and prayers always, Laszlo & Maira Boros, Olympia, Washington

I am deeply sorry for your hearts be comforted in knowing that Jehovah God cares and wants to help. His beautiful words at Isaiah 41:10 tells us that he wants to hold on to us with His Right Hand of Righteousness . He also tells us not to be afraid, that He is with us. He also gives us hope for the future at Revelation 21:4. It is my hope that those words of comfort and encouragement helps with your grief .
