Paeasia Taiamonipa Kioa was born of goodly parents in Salt Lake City, UT on October 27, 1987. She has returned to our Heavenly Father on July 13, 2021 in Idaho Falls, ID as she lovingly gave birth to her 5th child.
Daughter of Sitiveni Feliki Kolomalu and the late Lativia Tua’one Kolomalu. She is 3rd of 7 kids: Ema’ile, Heilala, Paeasia, Sione, Mosese, Keriann and Marilyn. She was destined for success as a young woman, always on the go, she lived everyday with purpose. She was raised in Rowland Heights, CA and later finished her Jr. High and High school years in Chino, Ca. She completed a full-time mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the Chicago Illinois South Mission. After returning home she decided to follow her dream to work in the airline industry and accepted a job as a cross-utilized agent for Skywest Airlines in Idaho Falls, ID. Paeasia then decided to further her education as she attended Brigham Young University-Idaho. There is where she met her eternal companion, her loving husband Filipe Kioa. They were soon married & sealed to one another in the Reno Nevada Temple on July 25th, 2014.
If you ever had a chance to meet Paea, the first thing you would notice about her was her golden heart. She was a shining example of God’s chosen army to prepare the world for the coming of the Savior. Her way of life was nothing short of God’s expectations in this life. From growing up as a child, to serving as a full-time missionary, to being married and having a family of her own, service was at the top of her list and to this day her service continues to impact the lives of many. Paeasia was a God-loving woman that not only taught the ways of the gospel, but more importantly lived it. She understood that God came first, then her family, and everything else came second. She would make you laugh at the simple things in life and find the innocence in every single person. She would serve everyone she met even if just with a warm smile, kind greeting, or a simple wave goodbye. She was loved by all and that is an understatement.
A big part of Paeasia’s life was her love for sweets. With her inspired love for cookies to her delicious, cold otai it was always a treat to be around her and be able to witness a true, pure and sweet spirit. Her body may be absent from this life, but her love and example lives on through her 5 beautiful children Soakai(6) Mele(5) Seneti(3) Keriann(1) Paeasia. The life of Paeasia was simple, but very motivating. One of her greatest attributes was determination to succeed in her plans and work hard until reaching her goals. Even through the final moments of her life, she taught a valuable lesson which is that love is sacrifice. We will be forever blessed to know you…A wonderful wife, true friend, a loving sister, kindhearted daughter, and a beautiful mother. We love you.
