Alao Litia Heka

The Dalles, Oregon

April 28, 1975 - December 11, 2015

It is with heavy hearts that Mr. and Mrs. Taliaoa Taefu Taisi Samoauatasi announce the passing of their precious daughter, Alao Litia Heka.

Litia passed peacefully in the care of her parents December 11, 2015.

Tia was a selfless and tenacious woman. Her soul was vibrant! She was a devoted member of the Seventh Day Adventist church. Our daughter gave all of her time and love benevolently. Tia was loved by many and most especially her family. She was passionate and nurturing in the devoted care of her parents.

Tia's favorite past times was collecting and cherishing memories of her loved ones. Our daughter took pride in our heritage and our family. Our lovely Tia is now resting in God's peace and will forever be in our hearts.

Our daughter is preceded in death by her Grandmother, Valelia Taua Matiseni.

She is survived by her parents Taliaoa Taisi Taefu Samoauatasi Heka, Fa’atamali’i Heka and brother Samoauatasi Heka Jr., sisters Miliama Heka Misa, Siniua Samaritano, Malii Davis, Sinae Steele, Sepela Brookover and numerous nieces and nephews.

My wife and I express our love and appreciation to all whom loved our daughter as much as we do.
Warm regards from family and friends may be forwarded to Spencer Libby and Powell and The Heka family address listed.

Prayer services will be held: December 28, 2015 at 11:00 am at Spencer Libby and Powell 1100 Kelly Ave. The Dalles, OR. 97058
