July 12th, 1959-November 24th, 2021
Our dearly loved mother, Itiliame Lose Wolfgramm Fifita, returned to our Heavenly Father at the age of 62. She was born in Ha’ateiho Tongatupu, Tonga, daughter of Makanesi Wolfgramm and Water Lily Tongi. Raised by her adopted parents, Iohani Wolfgramm and Salote Fakatou. Her biological and adopted parents preceded her in death along with sibilings (Peta Hansen, Napole Wolfgramm, Ana Wolfgramm, Lisiate Wolfgramm, Salesi Wolfgramm, and Maikeli Wolfgramm), and grandson, Bryzea Rocha.
Lose, “Rose”, moved to the US in 1965. She grew up as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and served in various callings. She worked for 30 years at OC Tanner, Co., where she was a facilitator/lead, and later a front-desk receptionist. In her younger years, she was a Polynesian Dancer, a treasured time for her, with the opportunity to travel to many areas of the US and Canada. Amongst her accomplishments, her dedication to her family was a priority. Everything she did was for her husband, children, and grandchildren. She met and married the love of her life, Hosea Latu Fifita, in 1982, who she is survived by, as well as her children- Anya (Vili) Tulimafua, Lolohea (Adam Nichols) Fifita, Hinemoa (Tevita) Tuakalau, Marisa Fifita, Hosea Fifita, 9 grandchildren, 6 siblings on her biological side, and 12 siblings on her
We would like to express our gratitude to the many family and friends who have sent their love and prayers. Ofa lahi atu!
