Dorothy Mary (Egner) Ogan

DOROTHY MARY (EGNER) OGAN
7 November 1928 –
26 April 2012

LOVING WIFE, DEVOTED MOTHER AND GRANDMOTHER

Dorothy Mary (Egner) Ogan, age 83, of Honolulu, passed away 26 April 2012. She was born in Topeka, Kansas, to Percy R. and Edith F. (Troxell) Egner. She grew up in a farming community near Ozawkie, where her family had deep roots on land purchased by her paternal great-grandparents in the 1850’s. Her spiritual roots ran deep as well, as her maternal grandfather was a prominent Lutheran minister.
Her humble farm background taught her the value of working hard and gave her an appreciation of things others sometimes take for granted, like running water, indoor plumbing and electricity. It also gave her a strong foundation of cooking, sewing and gardening, which she utilized throughout her life. She was a good student, graduating from Ozawkie Rural High School as salutatorian at the age of 16. She graduated from Washburn University in Topeka with a Bachelor’s Degree in Music with emphasis on vocals.
While at Washburn, she became engaged to her high school sweetheart, Billy Gene Ogan. They were married at First Lutheran Church in Topeka on 26 June 1948, and would have celebrated their 64th anniversary next month.
Bill was in the Air Force, and Dorothy soon learned the rigors of being a military wife. Their first child, Debbie, was born while Bill was halfway around the world serving in the Korean War. After he returned, and after the birth of her second child, Mike, she had to keep the family organized during moves to several different air bases, including Karamursel, Turkey. On that particular move, she had to manage the two kids by herself since Bill was required to be there in advance of the family.
Following her return from overseas, Dorothy put her experiences, photographs and souvenirs to work, creating a slide show called “In the Footsteps of Paul”, tracing the Biblical Paul’s travels in Asia Minor and Italy, which she presented to school classes and church groups.
Music was always a big part of Dorothy’s life. Her mother taught music and English at the local school. As a young girl she sang at numerous weddings, funerals and community events. While at Washburn, she became a member of the Sigma Alpha Iota (SAI), an international professional music fraternity.
She taught music for three years in the high school at Denison, Kansas. As a military wife, she was active in music in several far-flung locations, including Milwaukee, Wisconsin (Milwaukee A Capella Chorusters), Amarillo, Texas (Amarillo Chorus), Turkey (Karamursel Air Base Chapel choir director) and Tulsa, Oklahoma (Tulsa Opera and Symphony choruses).
In 1966, the family moved to Honolulu, where Dorothy sang alto in numerous organizations, including The Honolulu Chorale, Honolulu Symphony Chorus, Hawaii Opera Theater Chorus, The Don Allton Singers and The Skylarks (women’s chorus at Hickam Air Force Base). She directed the choirs at Pearl Harbor Lutheran Church and Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Waikiki. She also was a soloist at the Temple Emmanu-el Synagogue for several years. Dorothy’s career with the Hawaii Opera Theater Chorus spanned nearly 40 years, where she sang in two or three operas each year, beginning with La Boheme in 1967 and most recently Turandot in 2005. In addition to performing, she taught piano lessons privately from 1967 to 1999.
Dorothy always had a love for dogs, especially cocker spaniels, which she bred and raised for many years. She was a member and officer of the Hawaii Cocker Club, and was a handler in numerous dog shows for her cockers, many of which became champions.
She is survived by her husband, Billy G. Ogan, Honolulu; daughter, Deborah S. Ogan, Virginia Beach, VA; son, Michael C. Ogan, Honolulu; grandson, Adam G. Ogan & wife, Mayumi T., Honolulu; brother, John M. Egner & wife, Kathryn H., Overland Park, KS; sister, Irene T. Plymate & husband Glenn, Merritt Island, FL; and sister-in-law, Myrtle E. Whiteside, Granbury, TX.
Funeral service was held Wednesday, 9 May 2012, at the Borthwick Mortuary Maunakea Chapel followed by burial at the Hawaii State Veteran’s Cemetery. Memorial donations in the name of Dorothy Egner Ogan may be made to Prince of Peace Lutheran Church, PO Box 88269, Honolulu, HI 96830-8269 or Friends of Washburn Music, Washburn Endowment Association, 1700 SW College, Topeka, KS 66621.

Tiffany Kaleiokalani Hughgill-Magee

Posted On May 15th, 2012 -

TIFFANY KALEIOKALANI HUGHGILL-MAGEE
Sept. 14, 1969 – May 02, 2012

Was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, to Captain Alan Hughgill and Halaki Morrow. An only child, she was embraced with love by her many aunties and uncles and especially her maternal grandparents, William and Winona Green of Honolulu, and her paternal grandparents, George and Dolly Hughgill of Rindge, New Hampshire. Her paternal aunts and uncles include: Eleanor Muldoon; Robert Hughgill; Raymond Hughgill; Phillip Hughgill; Marilyn Hurley; Linda Snow; and Janet Hughgill. Her maternal aunts and uncles include: Parsha Green; Bill Green Jr.; Richard Green; Jennifer Green-Stan (James Stan); and Wayne Green. Tiffany had oodles of cousins whom enjoyed each others’ company. She was especially close to her cousins Shareen M. S. Stan, Marilyn Hurley, and Debbie Hurley-Trieloff.
Tiffany was reared in the islands, attending Central Union Kindergarten then Holy Nativity School in Aina Haina through the 6th grade, Mid-Pacific Institute for the 7th and 8th grades, then transferred to Seabury Hall in Kula, Maui for the 9th and 10th grades. She returned to Honolulu for her 11th and 12th grades and graduated from Lutheran High School. Tiffany attended Moorpark College in California where she undertook studies in the Exotic Animal Training Program. Eventually, Tiffany attained her Certified Nursing Attendant Certification while residing in Fort Collins, Colorado. She returned to Honolulu for a brief attendance at Kapiolani Community College.
Tiffany was an avid equestrian. She and her trusted steeds won numerous ribbons and awards from various competitions since she was a very young girl. From Koko Head Stables in Honolulu, and Four Winds in Fort Collins, to Malu ‘Olu in Waimanalo, Tiffany was never far from her four-legged maned friends: Uila (High Spirits); Kahikolu; Christopher; and Mojave. She shared her love of horses with everyone. Her enthusiasm usually swayed people to become horse enthusiasts.
Tiffany’s devotion to animals was not limited to horses. She frequently found homeless or lost dogs and cats whom became a part of her menagerie. Birds, mice, guinea pigs, and more always found Tiffany’s heart big enough to include them. She was the best example of unlimited love for God’s creatures.
Her love of animals was only exceeded by the love for her family. Tiffany and Patrick Magee were married on November 14th, 1993, at the Kahala Hilton Hotel in Honolulu, Hawaii. They resided in Hawaii for a few years before relocating to Fort Collins, Colorado. The couple found the lifestyle appealing for Patrick’s biking/hiking interests and Tiffany’s horse-interest. The community of Hawaiian ex-patriots in Fort Collins helped lessen the loss of island family support. Their islander friends became the couples’ life-time extended family.
Tiffany and Patrick’s family was increased with the arrival of their precious son, Nathan Hokuhele Magee whom arrived via Korea. Their family was complete. The threesome lived in Fort Collins for seven years before returning home to Honolulu. Tiffany, Patrick, and Nathan made their home in Waimanalo, rejoicing their return to the island and the family who missed them.
Tiffany focused on family and her sweet son, Nathan. Her love of all things horse-related continued with her dear horse, Mojave, and her life-long activities with the horse community. She served on the Board of the Hawaii Horse Show Association.
The people whom had the good fortune of knowing Tiffany were aware of her life-long struggle with Type I diabetes. She battled her bodily enemies with all the strength she could muster. She had a beautiful family to live for, and she loved Patrick and Nathan very much. She had her parents’ love and support, as well as other family members and friends. At one time during a particularly life-threatening event, husband Patrick gave one of his kidneys to be transplanted to a very sick Tiffany in Colorado. It was a miracle that Patrick was a match. A miracle!
Still, Tiffany’s medical challenges never ceased. On May 2nd, surrounded by her family, Tiffany was bid a heart-wrenching goodbye.
Rest in eternal pain-free peace, Tiffany, with our heavenly Lord Father.
A remembrance gathering for Tiffany Kaleiokalani Hughgill-Magee will be held on Wednesday, May 16th, at the Oahu Cemetery Chapel. The visitation begins at 10am with a “Celebration of Life” commencing at 11am. Following the service, refreshments will be offered. Final internment will be privately held for immediate family at Diamond Head Memorial Park at a later date.
