As many of you already know, Miss Kunioka has passed away

It was wonderful to see photos of the Class of 1963 visiting Miss Kunioka at One Kalakaua on her 100th birthday this past September 19th. I thought one of their most interesting comments was that when they attended her retirement ceremony at the Lab School, they were upset at the disrespect shown by younger grads who called her “Kuni.” I’d have to agree with that sentiment. Miss Kunioka was a monumental institution in her own right, an integral part of the bedrock of University High who deserves our utmost respect.

I’m going to continue to post her recipes; I must have 50 or more. Keep checking the site, and note that there is a link at the top of the page specifically for her recipes.

Aloha, Miss Kunioka, and thank you for all you did for our school.


  1. Lanning,
    So sorry to hear of Miss Kunioka’s passing. I’m glad she lived a full life and achieved the Century Milestone. She was a wonderful and incredible lady. Her Memory till at least our last reunion was amazing.

    I will post some photos from my collection on Facebook in a album I can share publicly with the Lab School Ohana.
