Marjorie Elizabeth Ralston of Honolulu was the first voice of Minnie Mouse Rick Ralston remembers hearing his mom say in a high falsetto voice, “Hiya Mickey!” She died July 22, 1998 in Queen’s Hospital from osteoporosis  complications at age 86. “She was always very shy about it,” said Rick Ralston, recalling his mother’s Minnie Mouse beginnings.  Her love of art inspired Ralston to begin painting shirts, which evolved into Crazy Shirts Inc., one of the most successful T-shirt companies in Hawaii. Fresh out of high school in Los Angeles, Marjorie Ralston took a portfolio of her sketches to unknown animator Walt Disney in 1928  and became hired as his 13th employee. Called an inker, she colored  in the illustrator’s shapes in an old Los Angeles garage that served as  the first Disney studio. “I’m not sure we ever thought of it as an art form back there in the  garage on Hyperion Boulevard,” Marjorie Ralston said in a 1971  interview with the Star-Bulletin. “We were the beginning. The animators, the artists, an office girl and  Walt Disney. The rest of us idolized him.” As Disney walked around her desk one day talking like Mickey  Mouse, she answered back like Minnie and became recruited to  speak for the demure mouse. She only did one cartoon as Minnie and  then begged out of it because of her shyness, Rick Ralston said. But she stayed on as an inker for almost 13 years before retiring to raise her two sons in L.A. People continued to ask her to talk like Minnie Mouse, but she bashfully declined saying, “I get stage fright.” But now and then she would talk like Minnie for her sons. Rick Ralston remembers growing up surrounded by Pinocchio cartoon cells on the walls of his bedroom. They were castaways from his mother’s job. “We used to laugh when we realized many years later, Mom could  have brought home boxes of those Disney cartoon cells. Little did anyone know they’d be worth $1,000 each. We could have been set  for life,” Ralston said. Times for the Ralstons weren’t all cartoons. Marjorie and Bradford Ralston divorced when Rick and his brother, Bob, were boys. Their  mother struggled to raise them herself, working then as a licensed practical nurse. Stretched too thinly, Marjorie Ralston had a  breakdown, Rick Ralston recalled. Neighbors contacted the Salvation Army to send food baskets to their house.  Ralston came to Hawaii in 1962 and began painting T-shirts. He  began Crazy Shirts in 1964, and his mother came to Hawaii in 1968.  Bob Ralston, Rick’s brother, played with the Lawrence Welk band and enjoyed success as a musician.  In honor of his mother’s roots, Ralston added Minnie, Mickey and Donald Duck’s original 1933 versions to his shirt designs in 1973. He  presented the first Minnie Mouse shirt off the assembly line to his  mom. In Hawaii, Marjorie Ralston spoke out on various issues through the years in letters to the editor of Honolulu newspapers. She supported the old Waikiki historic landmarks and opposed unchecked development in the name of tourism. Services were private. She is also survived by son Bob; and  grandchildren Randy, Diane, Tyler and Paige.

Aiko Reinecke of Makiki, widow of leftist intellectual John Reinecke, died Wednesday May 6, 1998 at home. She was 91. Her late husband was one of the Hawaii Seven convicted of violating the Smith Act who ultimately had their convictions overturned by the 9th U.S.  Circuit Court of Appeals in the 1950s. The Reineckes were both fired from their public school teaching jobs in 1948, after having been suspended in 1947, because they were accused of Communist leanings. Represented by labor attorneys Harriet Bouslog and Myer Symonds, they eventually won a settlement from the state in 1978 when Bouslog secured a formal apology and $250,000 from the Legislature. The Reineckes were awarded the third American Civil Liberties Union of Hawaii Allan F. Saunders award in 1976. Days before the award, the Board of Education voted to recommend that the Reineckes be exonerated. This in effect revoked the 1948 termination ruling by the then commissioners of education.
