With great sadness, we announce the passing of Misao Yoshida. “Missy” passed away at Nanaimo Regional Hospital on October 18, 2009 at the age of 69. Predeceased by husband Satoru and father Tom Kariya. Survived and dearly missed by mother Aiko; daughters: Cynthia (Jace) and Naomi; sisters: Yoko (Bob), Mayumi (Doug); brothers: Louie (Vivian), Takeshi (Janine) and John.
Missy was a devoted daughter, loving mother, dedicated big sister, cherished auntie and beloved friend.
She was loved by all who had the privilege of knowing her. She will be remembered for her gruff voice, kind heart, helping hands, sense of humour and ability to dance a jig whenever and wherever.
Private family remembrance as per Missy’s request. Those desiring may make a donation in honour of Missy to Loaves and Fishes located at 1009 Farquhar St. Nanaimo, B.C. V9R 2G2.
This is an organization she donated to often with handmade blankets and baby clothes. Helping others would honour her memory.
