October 25, 1929 ~ November 23, 2015
Mom passed away peacefully at home and was courageous to the end of her long struggle with Parkinson’s Disease. She was deeply loved and survived by her children Wayne (Margie), Rulie (Carter), and Warren. Mom loved being Grandma to Sandi, Keith, Brian, Lori, Gracie, and Lili, and was thrilled to welcome great-grandchildren Caitlin, Bryson, Mason, and Tyler into her family. Mom is also survived by family members in the Seattle area, Tacoma, California, and Ohio. She was predeceased by her first husband Shig, second husband Bill, siblings Jim, Stogie, Ty, and Merry, and her parents Robert and Michiyo, who she often spoke of rejoining during her final months. Special thanks to Zee, Mom’s caregiver, who helped make it possible for her to live out her days at home in comfort and with dignity.
A memorial service in honor of Mom’s life will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, January 16, 2016.
