Mourners pay tribute to former Lt. Gov. Jean King

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) Hawaii's first woman to be elected lieutenant governor is being remembered as a pioneer in state politics.

Mourners gathered at Kawaiha'o Church in Honolulu for a memorial service Saturday to honor former Lt. Gov. Jean Sadako King.

King, who died last month at the age of 84, served the office from 1978 until 1982 under former Gov. George Ariyoshi.

Hawaii News Now reports that Honolulu City Councilman Stanley Chang spoke of King.

Chang says King was a passionate woman who never backed down from her principles or beliefs.

King also served in the state House of Representatives from 1972 to 1974 and in the state Senate from 1974 to 1978.

Gov. Neil Abercrombie ordered all state flags fly at half-staff this weekend in King's memory.
