Mieko Mano Obituary
Mieko Mano
Sept. 5, 1928 - Aug. 17, 2014
Resident of Watsonville
On Sunday, August 17th, Mieko Mano, known to her friends and family as Mickey, passed away suddenly at the age of 85. Mickey was born in Fresno and moved to the Watsonville area in 1952 when she married the love of her life, her beloved husband, Joseph Mano.
A breast cancer survivor, Mickey loved playing Bingo with her children and was an avid Giants fan. She rarely missed any Giants game and always watched any show about her favorite team. She also followed her second favorite sport, tennis. Mickey spent her earlier years as a homemaker, happy to be a stay at home mom raising her six children in Freedom. She and her husband loved to bowl together in league at the old Cabrillo Lanes. After her husband Joe's death in 1973, Mickey worked as a cashier at the Quik Stop Market in Freedom and later the Lakeside Market in Watsonville. In her later years, Mickey lived in the country with her daughter Shari and her husband, Krag Pope. She enjoyed her retirement and was cared for with love and devotion. One of her favorite past times was watching the wild deer and their fawns frolicking around their home.

Dearly loved, Mickey will be deeply missed by her daughters Donna Barnett of Aromas, Sandra Imperio of Watsonville, Kathleen Clarke of South Lake Tahoe and Shari Mano of Prunedale and her son, Gary Mano of Las Vegas. She leaves behind three brothers, Frank and Tom Isogawa of Selma and Hiro Isogawa of Fresno. She is also survived by four grandchildren and four great-grandchildren as well as many dear friends and family throughout California.

Please join friends and family for a Memorial service at the Westview Presbyterian Church at 118 First Street in Watsonville on Tuesday, August 26th at 1pm.
