ROSALINE SHIGEYO ISHIHARA (TOKUNAGA)ROSALINE
SHIGEYO ISHIHARA (TOKUNAGA) Rosaline was 96 years old when she passed away on April 16, 2015. She was a graduate of McKinley High School and Phillips Commercial School. "Rosie" was a member of the YWCA when she met "Yoshi". Other affiliations included The Japanese Women's Society, Zonta Club of Honolulu and Credit Women - International, where she was a past president. She was married for 59 years to Yoshimasa Ishihara and had five children: John (Gail Rabideau), Robert, Isaac (Faith), Joan (Wayne) Nakamoto, and Susan Ishihara. Her husband, and only brother Itsuo, predeceased her. Rosie worked long hours at family owned G. Ishihara & Son, Inc., dba Hallmark Jewelers, where she "married" happy couples who trusted her with their important wedding ring choices. They would frequently return to see her for other special purchases. Her favorite vacation spot was Las Vegas, playing "BINGO!" We will miss her kind and gently ways, her "shaka" signs and beautiful smiles!" The family would like to thank Helen Agbayani and Islands Hospice for their compassionate care, and to Rev. Yoshinobu Sato who gave her healing massages. Rosie is also survived by grandchildren: Kirk (Helen), Kyle (Kathy), Keith (Monique Shimamoto) Nakamoto, Kanoa Ishihara, and four great grandchildren. Private services held.
