Couple celebrates 50th anniversary

William “Bill” and Jeanette Kinaka

William “Bill” and Jeanette Kinaka celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on Nov. 23. Bill and Jeanette were both born and raised in Hawaii — Bill in Lahaina and Jeneatte in Honolulu — but they met 5,000 miles away in Washington, D.C., while working for Hawaii’s U.S. senators.

Shortly after having their two daughters, Bill and Jeanette returned to Maui, where they have lived ever since.

Having retired from his law practice this year, Bill and Jeanette are enjoying spending time with their two daughters and four grandchildren, as well as staying active in their church and community.
