LAKE COUNTY, Calif. – Momoko Shimada died peacefully on Jan. 8, 2014, with family by her side.

She was born in Tokyo, Japan Feb. 5, 1923, to Yonetaro Tsuyuki and Ko Tsuyuki.

She loved dance, music, arts, animals, children and nature. She mastered traditional Japanese dance and received her license to teach from kabuki theater choreographer Bando Mitsunojo, from whom she received her distinguished stage name Bando Mitsuyu.

She performed at Teikoku Gekijou (Imperial Theater) near the Imperial Palace in Tokyo when she was 20 years old.

She also mastered Shamisen (a three string instrument) from Master Kineya, and Nagauta singing from Master Matsunaga Wafu (her stage name is Matsunaga Wakuni).  

Momoko and her husband Kiyoshi Shimada owned and operated a restaurant, Tenkuni in Ginza, Tokyo. She was the third generation owner of Tenkuni.

After her husband unexpectedly died at an early age of 57, she left everything behind and moved to Lake County, Calif., in 1990 to live with her only daughter’s family and spent the next 24 years of her life here.

She performed and taught traditional Japanese dance in the Ukiah area into her mid 80s.

She is survived by her daughter, Machiko Shimada; granddaughter, Hinda Darner; grandson, Kiyomizu Darner; great-granddaughter, Layla Elise (Kaimai) Darner; and great-grandson Dezmond Shimada Solomon.

She touched many hearts and has left a great void with her passing but also leaves behind fond memories. She was kind and humble and known for her lovely smile. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends.

Her daughter carries on her legacy of music, her granddaughter dancing and her grandson culinary arts and the restaurant business.

A memorial will be held at the Tallman Hotel Meeting Room in Upper Lake on Saturday, Feb. 22, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. 

LAKEPORT, Calif. – Jean Doris Rosenaur was born on Sept. 14, 1928, in Louisville, Kentucky, the youngest child of Charles F. and Hazel, little sister of Charles E. She joined them in heaven on Jan. 16, 2014.

In her 87 years Jean knew love and grief, sorrow and joy. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband Bill Sachs and daughter Kitty Kimbell. She is survived by her son Ziggy Katt of Texas, son Bob Katt of N.Y., eight grandchildren, 18 grandchildren and two great-great grandchildren.

Her greatest joy in life was music. Her high school year book described her as a always “humming in the school – member of the Glee Club – will someday stand in front of a class teaching music.” In a later part of the yearbook where the yearbook team guessed what they thought the graduates would be up to in 10 years it was prophesied that Jean would be “teaching Bing how to croon.”

In the 1940s she regularly sang on the radio. In every decade of her life she sang in Methodist church choirs. Psalm 100:2b invites “Come into His presence with singing.” One can only imagine her delight to do so now.

Jean will be buried with her husband on Friday, Feb. 7, at Riverside National Cemetery at 1:45 p.m.

Flowers die but music is eternal. If you would like to make a donation in Jean’s honor you are invited to send it to United Christian Parish where her granddaughter Shannon Kimbell-Auth is the pastor and director of the children’s choir iSing. She would be delighted to, even in her death, share the gift of music with the next generation.
