Obituary for TATSUE DODGE

85, of Ewa Beach, passed away on September 14, 2017 at Pali Momi Medical Center. She was born April 25, 1932 in Japan to Utaro and Tamae Takeda.
After marrying her Marine Corps husband Richard in Tokyo in January 1959 they were transferred to Oahu eight months later. After a 4-year tour of duty in Hawaii, they were assigned to several other out-of-state military locations, before returning to Oahu in 1970 where her husband eventually retired from the Marine Corps, and she worked at the Mess Halls at Barbers Point and West Loch over the next 25 years.
She enjoyed dining out at her number one restaurant (Gyotaku), and watching her Japanese TV shows. She especially loved watching the Sumo Tournaments where she would be joined in her special TV room by members of her family to help her cheer for her Sumo favorites.
She is survived by her husband Richard, her daughters Katharine and Mary, her sons Johnnie (Sherry), Jimmie (Kristy), and Richard; her grandchildren Crystal, Jarred, Kelsey, Stormy, Kawehi, Kylie, Johnnie, and Tommy; and her great grandchildren Tyler, Nathan, Akahana, and Kalama.
Tatsue’s family meant everything to her, and she was the best wife, mother, and grandmother anyone could ever ask for. She was loved and respected by so many, and she will be sorely missed by all. She will forever live on in our hearts and prayers.
Soka Gakkai Buddhist services and inurnment were held at Mililani Mauka Cemetery.
