Oda was a huge part of the maintenance employees that helped make an organization to be great. She assisted and developed a supply system run smoothly. After moving to the State Maintenance Office she became one of the most crucial employees in the maintenance community. She loved life, family and all the employees she worked with. What a special lady. we all miss her deeply. COL (R) Marler

I don’t believe I’ve seen Oda Mae since she graduated from high school. I was friends with Jean and I remember Oda as kind, friendly, funny and happy. It appears from the other memories I read that she never changed. Rest easy Oda.

Oda was a great lady that has left us with beautiful memories. CSMS would not have been the same without her. If Oda could not fix your problem then it could NOT be fixed! My life was blessed to have known her. The angles in Heaven are now listening to Elvis!

Oda has been part of my life as far back when she was in supply at CSMS with Norman Jackson and Robert Gastkie and others. ODA was a lady with a wealth of knowledge and put her knowledge to use taking care of all of the CSMS employees. Oda was a person that was always there with a smile for you.

The day after I retired from CSMS I got up that morning put on my civilian clothes and went to the shop and sat in Oda’s office waiting for her to arrive. When she walk in she ask me what I was doing there. I told her I just needed some Oda time. Tears came to her eyes and she gave me a huge hug.

I can’t begin to tell the rememberable occasion and experience Oda and I shared. Oda is a huge lose to me and I have a deep emptiness in my heart.

ODA will be remembered for ever.

Miss Oda took care of us all at CSMS. She got us paid, filled out our travel voucher. fixed untold numbers of problems all with that great smile and Her little chuckle. I once asked CW 5 Mathison (CSMS shop Forman) if I could change something in my pay , I don't remember what it was but I do remember what He did. He stood up from his desk and said follow me. We crossed the hall to Miss Oda's desk and he asked her the same question, she said no and Doc Mathison turned to me and said no. That's when I knew who ran CSMS. From that point forward I went straight to Oda. I know She'll square heaven away too. You are missed Miss Oda rest in peace and tell Elvis hi.

Thankful for the opportunity I had to work with Ms Oda. Very few people do their job with as much pride and integrity as she did. Any question... Ms Oda knew it and took care of it. There will never be another Ms Oda.

I worked with miss Oda at CSMS. In all my uears of service I have never met a more dedicated person. In the years since her retirement we have hired multiple people into her old position and to this day we still refer to the position as Oda’s. She set such a high standard that it is still referred to as Oda’s old job and it has been many years since her retirement. We all hope to leave such a legacy someday.
