When I married Jack Vorfeld of Oahu Sugar Company in 1971, I inherited many treasured memories. I interviewed him on many subjects, and when the Web came into being, began writing articles for my personal website. I never met Jack’s first wife; she died two years before I met him, but I learned to love her as I “met” her through the eyes and hearts of the Vorfelds. When Japan attacked Pearl Harbor, Maxine, Jack, and their two boys were living in Waipahu, on the plantation, and what Maxine accomplished will probably never be known in full. She just did what she had to do as planes buzzed their home and smoke billowed from nearby Pearl Harbor.
