Hama Onoda Gant, beloved wife of Reginald T. Gant, cherished mother of Duke, Prince, Marcia and Maureen was born April 22nd, 1929 in a small village outside Tokyo, Japan and passed into the loving arms of the Lord on September 15th, 2008.

At 16, she was the youngest student ever to be accepted into Tokyo University Nursing School. She became the first and so far, only nursing student at Tokyo University to graduate by the age of nineteen.

She quickly achieved the rank of "head nurse" during World War II while serving with the hospital at Tokyo University. Marriage on January 7, 1952 brought a change in direction and focus, and she spent her enormous abilities on family and faith.

A devoted mother and devout Christian, she remained a strong, caring presence to family, friends, and to those less fortunate.

She joins her loving father, Harukichi; mother, Yuki; stepmother, Norie; brother, Yoshio and sister, Tsuta in heaven.

She is survived by her husband, Reginald T. Gant of Colorado Springs; her sons; daughters-in-law, and grandson, Duke and Maureen Gant of Kansas City, Prince, Marcia, and Braden Gant of Las Vegas and her sisters and brothers in Japan, Naoe, Seiji, Tomotake, Jun and Harue.

A memorial service was held Saturday at Cappadona Funeral Home in celebration of her life.
