Yvonne Pi'ilani (Daniels) Cox Obituary

In Loving Memory of Yvonne Pi‘ilani (Daniels) Cox (July 23, 1954 – January 9, 2024)

Yvonne Pi‘ilani Daniels, born on July 23, 1954, to David Samson Daniels, Sr. and Audrey Roselani Kekahuna in Wailuku, Maui, embraced a life of purpose and dedication.  She grew up in Kula, Maui and attended Kealahou School and later, Kula Elementary School.

In 7th grade, she continued her educational journey at Kamehameha Schools as a boarder. Upon graduating in 1972, she pursued a career in nursing, graduating from Kapi‘olani Community College as an L.P.N. For an admirable 50 years, she devoted herself to her craft, working seamlessly under the practices of Dr. Daniel Palmer and later, Dr. Stella Matsuda.

In 1978, Yvonne married George Mehewaole Cox III, and their union blessed them with three children: Pōmaialoha, Keoki, and Līhau. Celebrating 45 years of marriage this past year, their love was a testament to commitment and enduring partnership.

Yvonne faced the challenge of brain cancer in 2018, displaying unparalleled bravery through her remission and subsequent return of the illness in September 2023. Undeterred, she underwent treatment with resilience and grace.

At the age of 69, she received her wings from Ke Akua.                                      

Preceded in death by her parents, David and Audrey Daniels, her uncle and aunt, Peruvia “Blue” and Liliana Medeiros, and her brother, David S. Daniels Jr.. Yvonne is survived by her loving husband, George M. Cox III; daughters Pōmaialoha Apana and Līhau (Kekoa) Peltier; son George “Keoki” (Bryn) Cox IV; and cherished grandchildren: Skaizen, Skailacy, Kamaka‘ala, Skailey-Rose, Skaimana, Swayde, and Denim. She is also survived by her sisters: Haunani (David) Valente, Ione (David) Nobriga, and sister-in-law, Jovena Daniels.

A celebration of Yvonne's life will be held on Saturday, March 2, 2024, at Bishop Memorial Chapel at Kamehameha Schools. Visitation will commence at 9:00 a.m., followed by the service at 10:00 a.m. As we honor Yvonne's memory, let us remember her as a beacon of strength, love, generosity, and unwavering dedication.
