Less than a week after the funeral for Hawai'i entertainer Don Ho, his 52-year-old daughter Dayna Ho-Henry was found dead on the North Shore, according to her brother.

Honolulu police spokeswoman Michelle Yu said no foul play is suspected.

"She was not responsive this morning and was pronounced dead," said one of Ho's sons, Dwight Ho, 46. "We're having a hard time. We're just trying to pull together, get everybody together. We're terribly sad and trying to cope."

Dayna Ho-Henry had been staying with a friend on the North Shore, Dwight Ho said.

In 1971, then-16-year-old Dayna was dancing on stage in her father's weekend shows at the Cinerama Reef Towers' Polynesian Palace.

Don Ho died April 14 of heart failure at the age of 76. His ashes were scattered in Waikiki at a service on Saturday.
