Commentary Denby Fawcett: Hospitalized And Gravely Ill, This Hawaiian Princess Is Intent On Sharing Her Wealth Abigail Kawananakoa has made clear in the past that she wants her fortune to be used to benefit Native Hawaiians.

When I saw Oahu Auctions and Liquidation advertising an auction of “the contents of Princess Abigail Kawananakoa’s Historic Punaluu Summer Home,” I wondered if she was still alive.

After making some calls, I found out that Kawananakoa is gravely ill at The Queen’s Medical Center, according to close friends of hers.

They say the 96-year-old Campbell Estate heiress fell at her home, which caused her already fragile condition to deteriorate. She had been unwell since she suffered a stroke in 2017.

Her name evokes memories of a person larger than life who was at the center of so many news stories I covered.
