Sallie Mae Caires (Smith), of Maui, died March 30th, 2012 at her home in Houston, Texas where she has resided for the past year.
Sallie Mae was born January 27th, 1944, in Wailuku, Maui to Louise (Worley) and William Owen Smith.
She attended Kaunoa School and then Baldwin High School and lived on Maui most of her life. She had an amazing knowledge of the island, its history and its people. Her ability to show compassion and love was one of her greatest gifts.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Gordon Henry Caires of Makawao.
A celebration of her life will be held on Maui at a later date, to be announced.
