GG was the 3rd of 6 children. She was born in Honolulu, Hawai'i on February 9, 1934 to Kaula Kaeo Kalilikane and Harry Miguel Kalilikane Sr. Orphaned at a young age GG and her younger sister were raised at The Susanna Wesley Home for Girl's in Honolulu, Hawai'i. GG graduated in 1953 from W.R. Farrington High School and then employed at Dole Pineapple Canary as a general laborer picking pineapples.
GG married Phillip Abo Rosa in 1955 and in 1956 had her first and only child Marilyn. She was then blessed with 3 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren.
GG and her grandchildren then moved to Rochester, NY in 2002 after the death of her daughter. She then found a new love in traveling and took many trips. Her favorite trips were to Fort Wayne, IN to see her Ohana. She had three passions in her life, Ohana, ono food either cooking or eating, and everyone who knew her, CLEANING!
GG was a diehard University of Hawai'i Volleyball fan! She often missed watching her boy's play but always enjoyed when game's were televised. She also enjoyed watching Dog the Bounty Hunter and her favorite The Golden GIrl's, she always considered herself to be the Hawaiian Sofia. She also enjoyed going to the casino for all you can eat crab and playing slots.
GG always knew what to say, when to say, and how to say it. She always made sure of 2 things, she was always telling everyone I Love You and no one ever left her home without a full opu. She was a wonderful cook and no one could get enough of her famous hamburger steak, just one of the very many dishes that truly was broke da mouth local style grinds. She always raised people's spirits and with just one smile, hug, and lots of honi honi's she made everything right. But for those who knew her, how could you ever forget her infamous toast by yelling "Up Your's"! GG will be missed by everyone who loved and knew her. Aloha O'e GG until we meet again. Mahalo Nui Loa.
