Obituary for Ellen Ching Kong

Ellen Ching Kong also affectionately known as “Timmy”, her Chinese nickname, was born in Honolulu, Hawaii on August 31, 1925. Her parents, Mrs. Sau Lin and Mr. Tai Quan Ching were also from Hawaii. They raised a beautiful family of three in Hawaii. After a two year courtship Ellen married Albert, the love of her life in 1950. They were married for over 67 years.

As a native of Hawaii, Ellen was an active sportswoman. Surfing, traveling, and enjoying the beach was a large part of her early life. She was a long time employee of First Hawaiian Bank serving in multiple locations and eventually retiring in 1991. Her more famous customers were Jack Lord aka Steve McGarrett and Tom Selleck aka Magnum PI. Ellen said all the women loved to see them come in. Retirement eventually transitioned to very active world traveling, becoming a dining expert and quickly rising to the level of an avid and expert shopper! She especially enjoyed her lunch dates with her close girlfriends! They also loved the annual Honolulu International Film Festivals.

Ellen had two younger brothers, George and Ernest. She is survived by her husband Albert; sons Dennis, David and Roger; daughter in law Mary and grandchildren Alana and Nicholas.
Ellen and Albert shared life with Mary and David from August of 2012 on Orlando, FL. Roger and Dennis would make frequent visits to Orlando to their delight. However, Ellen left us early on Thursday, July 27, 2017. We know she is resting peacefully and with God. Ellen’s final resting place will be on Oahu, Hawaii at Nuuanu Memorial Park. We miss her dearly and will always have Ellen in our hearts, until we meet again.
