URASAKI
SHIZUKO “SUZIE” URASAKI passed away on Monday, April 7, 2014 after a lengthy struggle with Parkinson’s Disease at the age of 76.
Shizuko was born in the village of Yomitan, Okinawa, Japan and was the fourth child in a family of nine children. She grew up in the aftermath of the Second World War and the hardships she endured as a young girl instilled in her the importance of perseverance, hard work and love of family. After high school, she worked as a health care aide and then as an accounting clerk at a U.S. military base in Okinawa. She dreamed of coming to Canada and eventually emigrated with Dad and her growing family. Upon arriving in Lethbridge, Mom began work at York Farms/Maple Leaf Foods and worked there for almost thirty years. Mom was a quiet woman that inspired others through her generosity and strength of character. She enjoyed gardening, cooking traditional Japanese and Okinawan meals and spending time with her family. She was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease shortly after her retirement and she faced that struggle with dignity and little complaint. She was an example for many because of her determination and commitment to her family and she will be greatly missed.
Shizuko is survived by: her husband of 47 years, Roy Masayoshi; her children Jim (Cindy), George and Rumi; her grandchildren Evian, Ocean, Skyy, Jenna and Kobe.
The family would like to offer their gratitude to Dr. Musk, Dr. Ikuta, Vicki Kortt, the staff at St. Mike’s, and the staff at Park Meadows Good Samaritans for their care and support.
A Memorial Service will be held on Monday, April 14, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. at CHRISTENSEN SALMON GENERATIONS FUNERAL HOME, 703-13 Street North, Lethbridge, with Pastor Jim Lindemann officiating. Koden is gratefully declined.
