Rev. Seido Ogawa   -  The Rev. Seido Ogawa was a leader in early efforts to bring different churches together to work on social and community issues that transcend denomination.  "He took Christian unity very seriously," said Maryknoll Sister Joan Chatfield. "One of his favorite expressions was that people should never lose sight of fact we were reading the same gospel." Ogawa, 89, executive director of the Honolulu Council of Churches from 1962 to 1969, died Sunday Dec. 5, 2004 in Pali Momi Hospital. He was a minister with the United Church of Christ whose assignments included work with Japanese Americans who were interned in California during World War II and with Hansen's disease patients in Kalaupapa. He served congregations in Waipahu and on Kauai. Chatfield, who was active in early ecumenical efforts, said Ogawa was instrumental in establishing Church of the Crossroads as a sanctuary for servicemen opposed to the Vietnam War. "He was one of the early participants at the Nuuanu Thanksgiving," an interfaith service now in its 42nd year, Chatfield said. "He helped institutionalize the Punchbowl Easter sunrise service, made sure it had strong support." Under his direction, the Council of Churches addressed mental health, public education and labor issues and brought noted speakers, including Martin Luther King Jr., to Hawaii. Ogawa worked as a juvenile-delinquency specialist with the state Law Enforcement Planning Agency from 1969 to 1976 and was appointed to the Hawaii Paroling Authority in 1977. He served as president of the Health and Community Services Council and a board member of Child and Family Services. He was born in Honolulu and was a graduate of McKinley High School and Chicago Theological Seminary. He did graduate work at Harvard Divinity School on a Merrill Fellowship. He is survived by son Everett, daughters Cheryl Ho and Liesa Ogawa, brother Takeo, five grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Services will be at 2 p.m. Friday at Hosoi Mortuary. The family asks that flowers be omitted and aloha attire be worn.  [SB Dec. 7, 2004]

 

SEIDO OGAWA 1915 - 2004 A United Church of Christ minister by ordination, Seido Ogawa was the first and foremost a person who looked beyond the usual designations of society to value human beings - their strengths and their predicaments. In so doing, he was able to serve both individuals and the wider community. At McKinley High School ('33), Ogawa was student body president and an orator. While studying at the UH, he played on the tennis team and was active in the YMCA. He graduated from Chicago Theological Seminary, summa cum laude. In 1967, he did graduate work at Harvard Divinity school, on a Merrill Fellowship. Ogawa married vivacious Flora Asahina, who was his high school sweetheart. They had three children: Cheryl, Everett and Leisa. Flora passed away in 1989 leaving Seido to fill their roles in the life of their family, by supporting their children and grandchildren in their varied pursuits, and by attending or being the center of family gatherings. Ogawa served congregations in Kapa'a and Waimea on Kaua'i and in Waipahu. Years later, he still valued friendships formed in those parishes. After WWII, under the auspices of the denomination, he had worked with Japanese-American Internees in California. While ministering to patients at Hawai'i State Hospital, as well as at Hale Mohalu and Kalaupapa, he became acquainted with profound depths of human experience, and was continually grateful for that. While serving as Executive Director of the Honolulu Council of Churches from 1962 to 1969, Ogawa convened members of the ecumenical community to address such needs as mental health, public education, and labor issues. He was also instrumental in bringing such leaders as Martin Luther King, William Stringfellow and Harvey Cox to speak before local gatherings. From 1969-1976, Ogawa served as Juvenile Delinquency Specialist with the State Law Enforcement Planning Agency. In 1977, he was appointed a member of the State Paroling Authority. Among Ogawa's voluntary commitments were serving as president of the Health and Community Services Council and of the Board of Child and Family Services. For many years he taught Tai Chi at Nu'uanu Congregational Church. In recent years, Ogawa was affected by Alzheimers. With the assistance of family and wonderful neighbors, however, he managed to maintain his own care as well as to contribute toward others' needs. A service will be held on Friday, December 10, at 2:00 p.m. at Hosoi Mortuary. The family suggest aloha attire and no flowers.   [Adv Dec. 9, 2004]

MARC VINCENT OLEY Marc was born in Racine, Wisconsin to Clifford Joseph Oley and Jeanette Virginia Vincent. He lived in East Lansing and Frankfort, Michigan before relocating to Honolulu as a teenager with his family including sister, Judith, and his grandparents. He was a member of the Kalani High School golf team and first graduating class, a Marine on the U.S.S. Hornet in Vietnam, and graduate of Michigan State University (B.A.) and University of Hawaii (M.A.) Professional law enforcement career: Officer, Honolulu Police Department; Criminal Justice Planning Specialist, State Law Enforcement Planning Agency; Consultant, State Judiciary; Member and Chair, Hawaii Paroling Authority; and Administrator, State Department of Public Safety. Following his public service stint, Marc embarked upon endeavors that embraced his creative talents. Marc became proficient at woodworking, building furniture, flower arranging and picture framing. He acquired a restored 100-year-old farmhouse and barn, and cherry orchard on 32 acres of lakefront in Traverse City, Michigan and established Timberlane Farm, a throwback to his youth. He took much pleasure in improving the buildings, landscaping and nurturing the earth. Marc built a purple martin house for the compound, and enjoyed the cold Michigan winters, the vibrant autumn colors, and sailing and fishing on Lake Michigan. At home in Honolulu, Marc and Robyn's house was both his workshop and gallery. Perhaps the best chapter of his life was being a parent. When Jenna was born, Marc set aside his love of playing golf at Wai alae Country Club and his single digit handicap, and became Mr. Mom. He watched Jenna's artistic talents develop and proudly attended her ballet performance in "Tomorrow Will Be My Dancing Day" in December. Marc was also proud of Alex's athletic abilities. Marc served as an AYSO U6 and U8 soccer coach, the Hawaii Kai U6 Age Group Coordinator, and baseball coach for Waialae Kahala Athletic Club, Shetland division. He often professed his role as primary kids' chauffeur. Marc, Robyn and Jenna hosted a Christmas Eve dinner and enjoyed opening gifts on Christmas Day. He coached Jenna as she tried her new rollerblades. Surrounded by those he loved, Marc unexpectedly passed away on Christmas Day, Dec. 25, 2004. Marc was a loving and a devoted father and is profoundly missed. He was inurned with full military honors at National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific.

BETTY ORMISTON 86, of Lynden, Washington, passed away on November 11, 2004 at Christian Health Care Center in Lynden. The daughter of Mollie and George Shearer, she was born on October 11, 1918 in Spokane, Washington, the second of three children. Betty lived her life with quiet strength and a positive attitude, believing in the power of positive thinking. Everyone she met came to know her gentle sweetness. Her caring spirit never wavered even during the most difficult times of life. Betty married Darryl Ormiston in Yakima in 1939. The couple moved to Wenatchee, Washington in 1945. They had three children, Ron, Joe and Steve. In 1957, they moved to Santa Barbara, California as Darryl began a new career in real estate. Betty helped Darryl at his real estate office while raising their three sons. Her sons remember their parents' devotion to one another as they frequently held hands, a powerful symbol of the depth of their love. In 1975, Darryl and Betty moved to Honolulu, Hawaii to retire. They were blessed with many years of joy in America's paradise. In 1987, Darryl contracted Alzheimer's disease, and Betty was a steadfast and loving caregiver until his death in 1992. Soon after, Betty chose to move to Yakima, Washington to be close to her mother and sisters. In 1995, Betty married Yakima native Rex Matthews. Betty and Rex enjoyed many happy times together. Following Rex's passing in 2000, Betty moved to Bellingham, Washington to live close to her sister Olive Sanford; son Joe, nephew Dan Sanford and their families.
