Erlihna Rapai Ioanis
February 8, 1954 – November 25, 2019
Erlihna Rapai Ioanis, 65, of Humble, Texas, entered into rest on November 25, 2019. She was born in the Federated States of Micronesia on February 8, 1954. Erlihna grew up in Pingelap, Pohnpei with her parents Pen and Arly Rapai, and in 2012 moved across the ocean to Houston, Texas to be closer to the rest of her big family.
Erlihna was endlessly devoted to the people she loved, and worked hard to make their lives better. Good food was always at the center of her household, and she loved to cook beautiful feasts for her family. If Erlihna wasn’t in the kitchen, she could be found knitting, sewing, or working hard outside on the farms. She was full of not only passion but compassion as well, and it guided her through the many paths life took her.
Erlihna is survived by her children, Delina Ioanis and husband Lorens Pelep, Rocelyne Ioanis and husband Amahdo Primo, Derlyne Ioanis and husband Patrick William, Rick Ioanis and wife Permiter Alati, Rickson Ioanis, and Clara Ioanis, her grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and many others who are left to cherish her memory and carry on her legacy of love.
