She was married to fellow Mai-Kai performer Heitapu.

Show leader Toti Terrorotua left with Heitapu.

She had been battling lung cancer for years. I was able to interview her while she was in Florida for treatments and meet her at the Mai-Kai anniversary. I asked if she was going back to Tahiti and she replied “I am not fucking dying in Florida!”
