UYESAKA, GRACE - Fresno  
Grace Uyesaka, age 93, passed away on Sunday, September 18, 2016, at her home in Fresno, CA, following a long illness. She was born on January 23 , 1923, in Corcoran, CA, to Hidechiyo and Nobuko Mano. She was the youngest of four daughters, Chiye Mano, Chinobu "Kay" Utsunomiya and Reiko Hashimoto. She grew up in Corcoran, CA, and often told stories of working in her parents' grocery store. During World War II, she and her family were relocated to a Japanese American Internment camp in Jerome, AR. As part of the World War II Cadet Nursing Corps, she attended Cook County School of Nursing in Chicago, IL. There, she earned her R.N. credential. One of our favorite photos is of a smiling, newly graduated Grace in her nursing uniform and cap. For most of her nursing career, Grace worked in a small hospital in Fowler, CA. There, she worked as a nurse anesthetist and surgical nurse for nearly 30 years and delivered her special brand of charm and warmth to many. Grace's life was a living example of the value of kindness, compassion and generosity. That smile that could light up a room and her indomitable spirit will be fondly remembered and greatly missed. She married Roy Uyesaka on February 6, 1954, in Portland, OR. The ceremony was officiated by her brother-in-law, Dr. Hideo Hashimoto. She joins Roy, who passed away in December of 2003. The family was made complete with three daughters and a son, LuAnn Bertolino and husband David; Elaine Uyesaka and husband David Williams, and daughter, Alison; Melissa Matthes and husband Todd Matthes, and sons, Spencer and Harrison; and Ted Uyesaka, and daughters, Gracie and Chloe.
