Kazue Nellie Yokoyama Obituary
Kazue Nellie Yokoyama
Resident of San Jose
Passed away July 11 surrounded by her family after a brave 3 ½ yr struggle with the effects from a stroke.
First and foremost, Nellie was an excellent wife, mother and grandmother. She was extremely proud and protective of her family. Nothing made her happier then spending time with them. She loved to entertain family and friends over a home-cooked meal.
Nellie worked in the strawberry fields, raised her family, returned to school to obtain her AA at 50 then joined the work force at ADP. She later volunteered at San Jose Hospital (1500+ hrs.) and joined the Yu-Ai-Kai Tai-chi classes. Her many hobbies included traveling, painting, crocheting, gardening, sewing, and creating Japanese Folk Art. You could find her loudly rooting at any athletic event her family was involved in or cheering loudly for the 49ers and Giants. Nellie was a lifelong enthusiastic learner with a zest for life. She was all this and so much more.
Nellie was predeceased by her husband of 56 yrs., Kenji; her daughter, Nancy Ann; and siblings Bob, Mike, Ruth and Patty. She is survived by her children; Mark, Chad (Victoria), Kirk (Pauline), Sallie (Brian) & Linda (Mick), cherished grandchildren; Jennifer (Brian), Jonathan, Brice, David, Nancy, Lisa, Dayson, Brandon, Jalen, Tirzah & Kai and sisters; Grace and Betty. "Ma Nellie" will be sorely missed by all of us.
Family and friends are invited to attend her memorial service at Oak Hill Memorial Park, 300 Curtner Ave., San Jose on Monday, July 28 at 10:00 AM.
