Kono's mother survived, but was left brain damaged and unable to speak, devastating Kono.
Kono was out surfing when her cousin, Chin, recruited her for Five-0.
She eventually manages to call Chin for help, but loses her phone before she can get most of the message out. She does not easily forgive herself if she makes a mistake and she's also the only one who calls Lieutenant Commander Steve Mc Garret "boss." Like her cousin, Chin, Kono shows deep loyalty to Steve.
Chin and Steve quickly alert the Coast Guard who are delayed by another storm and ultimately can't find her before their helicopters run out of fuel. Seems like, every time she locks up a perp, they get new Intel that leads to another arrest. When Kono realizes the truth about Chin's leaving the force (the fact that her cousin took the blame for their uncle's crime) she becomes angry that Chin did not tell the truth.
In Mo'o 'olelo Pu, Kono decides to go on a surfing trip around the islands in honor of her mother who planned a similar trip but was prevented when she had her aneurism. Steve Mc Garrett: Adam Noshimuri came to visit me this morning. Steve Mc Garrett: I guess, uh, Kono's case has gone federal. Kono is not afraid doing her job, and is quite a formidable cop.
A violent storm sinks Kono's boat and leaves her adrift on a paddle board. The FBI want her to stick around, see it through to the end. Kono is currently learning more and more about the duties of being a cop.
It turned out to be her boyfriend who Chin had managed to call in advance while racing to Malia's aid. Despite being the only female member and the rookie of the team, Kono established herself quickly.These links will take you to various obituary search engines maintained by Libraries, Universities and other sources.
