Amy Imai Obituary
Amy Imai
June 23, 1930-Dec. 31, 2013
Resident of Mtn. View
Long time Mountain View resident Amy Imai passed away of natural causes on December 31, 2013, while preparing the special dishes for the coming New Year's celebration. Amy was the eldest daughter of John and Kinuyo Kunimoto, sister of the Late George (Kimi) Kunimoto, Arthur Kunimoto, and Kathleen (Hiro) Kobata. Amy spent her childhood in rural Mountain View, until her family was relocated to Heart Mountain in Wyoming during World War II. She returned to the area with her family, after the conclusion of the war, and finished high school at Fremont High School in Sunnyvale, where she was selected as one of the speakers at her graduation.
Throughout her life, Amy's quest was to "make a difference in my passing through this life." A quest that lead to her involvement in education, taking an active role in the Mountain View/Los Altos High School District and the Mountain View Sister City program. The true impact of her life was in her devotion to the Mountain View Buddhist Temple, where she was a Dharma School teacher for over 45 years, coordinated the Otoki for 15 years, Temple Senior Activity Coordinator, Echo Editor, and much more. Amy married the Late Robert Imai in 1957. Amy was the beloved mother of Robert, Darren, Bruce and Susan, and the beloved Grandmother of Michi, Robbie, Alyssa, Miyo and Seiji. Amy's nurturing, encouragement, direction, and friendship will be greatly missed by her family and friends. Friends are invited to attend a funeral service to be held at the Mountain View Buddhist Temple, 575 North Shoreline Blvd., Mountain View at 4:00 PM Saturday January 11, 2014.
