She is survived by her daughter, Joyce (Pierre Kruh) Kashiwagi and son, Eugene; granddaughter, Naomi Kruh; brother Yoshihiro (Junko) Urushibata; sister in-law Frances Yamaura; nieces, Marsha (Gerry) Tashiro, Jolie Urushibata and Cathie (Brad McDonald) Urushibata; nephews, Craig Yamaura and Robert (Sarah) Yamaura; and also many other loved relatives.

Born in Torrance, she moved to Shimizu City, then Kobe, Japan in 1940 when her mother died. She returned to the U.S. in 1951. Being fluent in Japanese and English, she was executive secretary to the various presidents of the Japan-based Pentel of America for 27 years. We were proud of our mother's attainment as a Master Sensei in the Misho-Ryu Miyaho-Kai Ikenobo School of flower arrangement, her life-long hobby and passion.
