Sioana 'Ungatea Talakai Ngatuvai passed away peacefully, at home surrounded by family on April 1, 2021, at the age of 82. She was born on August 17, 1938 in Pangai, Ha'apai, Tonga to Kelepi and Suliana Foliaki Finau Talakai.\n\nShe was preceded in death by her parents and siblings, Siaosi Loiti, 'Ilaisa Mosa'ati, Tevita Luani Naufahu, 'Elisapesi 'Onita, Taisia Sa'afi, and Siope Mafiloloa. She is survived by her husband, Semisi Moli, her sisters, Ofa Vaimoana Craig and Mele Na'ati Talakai, her children, Corona (Jennifer), Winnifred "Winnie", Teotihuacan "Teo" (Claudia), Dr. Tauaina James "Jimmy" (Michel), Caleb (Soana), Arnold (Araceli), and her grandchildren, Isaac, Keilani, Jacob, Alia, Kaisa, Naeisha, Richmond (Kamry), Christian, Caleb, Gabriela, Devon, Micah (Rachel), Keegan, Maxton, Quincy, Vivian, Soana, Summer, Samuel, Isabella, Anastacia, Malakai, and Joshua.\n\nShe attended Pangai Government Primary School (GPS), Pilolevu College, and Liahona High School. She earned her Bachelor's degree in Home Economics from the Church College of Hawaii in Laie, Oahu, Hawaii. She taught at Liahona High School in Tonga for a number of years before immigrating to the United States with her husband and three oldest children. She spent the next 16 years in Laie, Hawaii, serving in numerous church callings and working a variety of jobs. She relocated to Provo, Utah, in the late 80's, where she worked for many years in the Missionary Training Center cafeteria. Her job gave her unique access and opportunities to check up on numerous missionaries and offer encouragement before they left to their assigned mission fields.\n\nShe lived her life with a "not mine, but thine" attitude. She was willing to do whatever was needed to help her family, friends, neighbors, as well as perfect strangers. She was constantly observing and practicing the noteworthy attributes and behaviors of everyone she came in contact with. She was frugal when it came to her needs, but she was as generous as her means permitted when helping others. She would often stay up late into the night making leis for birthdays, graduations, and other meaningful events to make the recipients feel special and loved. She enjoyed the simple things in life and took joy in the accomplishments of everyone around her. \n\nShe enjoyed being around her children and took pleasure in spoiling her grandchildren. She always had a favorite treat prepared for them. She attended as many sporting events, recitals, and concerts as she could. On a trip to Disney World, she was content with staying in her lodging and waiting for everyone to return and share their adventures of the day with her. Simply being around them made her happy. She now enjoys the best seat to see all of her loved ones and friends around the world.\n\n A public viewing will be held on Saturday, April 17th from 9am to 11am followed by a funeral service, immediately after, in the Sunset 12th Tongan Ward, located at 1090 West 1020 South in Provo, Utah. \n\nServices will be live streamed for anyone wishing to participate remotely.
