Anakonia Kaila Salas was born on Dec. 17, 1946 in Honolulu, Hawaii, to proud parents Pauline and Gerard Pattison.
Known to her family and friends as “Toni” or “T”, she passed away on Dec. 30, 2008 surrounded by her loving family in Manteca.
Toni came from Hawaii with her family in August 1957 and lived in Des Moines, Iowa, for 11 years. She then moved with her family to San Jose where she lived for the majority of her life. She graduated from Sunnyvale High School in 1965 where she met the father of her children, Raul Salas. She spent many years working in several different jobs but eventually fulfilled her life long passion for cutting hair and received her Cosmetology License in the late 1980s.
She is survived by her three children Anthony, Scott and Leinani. She was also a very proud grandmother of Kristyna, Bryan, Andrew, Angelina, Kai, Keilani, Kalea and Michael. Her loving and giving spirit will never be forgotten. A hui hou kakou (Until we meet again) No Keia La, No Keia Po, A Mau Loa (From this day, from this night, forever more) Aloha Nui Loa (all my love), your ohana!
