Hideko Kuriyama Obituary
May 1, 1932 - January 22, 2017 Hideko Kuriyama quietly passed away at her home in Gardena on January 22, 2017. She was born in Lawndale, California to Hidematsu and Chisayo Nagai. The youngest of six daughters, she spent most of her life in California. The only exception was from 1942 to 1945 when she and her family were placed in a Japanese internment camp in Rohwer, Arkansas. She is survived by her four children Bob (Lori), Cliff (Anne), Terry (Lori), and Sandy; six grandchildren April (Nick) Taueu, Jennifer (Mando) Ochoa, Shaun Kuriyama, Kelly Yoshie Kuriyama, Kalvin Kuriyama, and Keith Kuriyama; and three great-grandchildren Sofia Kuriyama Ochoa, Maliah Taueu, and Nickolas Taueu. May, as she was known to many of her friends, loved spending time with her family, watching her beloved Dodgers, especially Vin Scully, and visiting the Monte Carlo in Las Vegas. She was the heart and soul of her family and will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
