February 12, 1956 - October 20, 2020
Frances Faau Paisa Afa, our beautiful mother, sister, co-worker and friend to all, passed away after a short battle with colon cancer. She was 64 years old. Frances was born February 12, 1956 in American Samoa and moved to Hawaii with her mom when she was 4 years old. She was a happy, social and friendly child. She played sports all through High School, especially loving basketball and volleyball. She met Fitu Afa when she was just 17. They dated until she finished High School and then married soon after graduation. They had one son, Frank. Frances loved work. It was her passion. She always worked in the food industry and was so good at what she did. She was most recently managing the Orem KFC and her co-workers and all the Harman Corporation employees were her second family. She loved what she did. Frances loved everyone and everyone loved Frances. She would talk to and make friends with anyone. She made people feel comfortable. She took real interest in others’ lives. She was a tough boss but had a tender heart. She hired those who had a hard time finding employment elsewhere and even took in many who couldn’t fully care for themselves. Frances was the epitome of charity and Christ-like love. She will be greatly missed. Frances was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She had a sweet testimony and a strong faith in her Heavenly Father and His plan. She is survived by her son, Frank (Nicole) Afa, her grandchildren, Daniel Molloy and Naomi Pulu, her mother, Alamu Araujo, and 16 brothers and sisters. She is preceded in death by her husband, Fitu Afa, and her brother, Lawrence “Jr” Araujo.
