Leslie Kim Loeser
Nov. 17, 1952 - Feb. 22, 2018
It is with great sadness that we share the passing of Leslie Kim Loeser, or as she is more affectionately known as, "Kimi", on February 22, 2018, at the age of 65. Kimi was born November 17, 1952 to Sada and Alice Ozawa. Kimi grew up in Livingston, CA as the youngest of six siblings. She graduated the class of 1970 from Livingston High School, and went on to earn an Associate's Degree at Merced College. Kimi married David Loeser in 1975 and stood by his side for 43 years. The couple had three daughters; Judi Castaneda, Suzi Loeser, and Miki Chang who survive her along with four grandchildren and two "grand-pups". Kimi served her community for 19 years working as a Stanislaus County clerk and continued to volunteer there after her retirement. Kimi was also an active supporter in local Veterans of Foreign Wars, Disabled American Veterans, Women's Auxiliary Chapters, and Japanese American Citizens League.
Kimi was beloved by many and a friend to all. She will always be remembered as a loving mother, grandmother, sister, friend, and green-obsessed firecracker. We will forever cherish her for her compassion and spunk.
Her memorial service will be held Thursday March 8 at 1:00 pm at Wilson Family Funeral Chapel, 1290 Winton Way in Atwater, CA. A reception will follow at 2:00 pm at the VFW hall 1390 Broadway Ave Atwater, CA.
