Barbara Shizuko Fujimoto
Barbara Shizuko Fujimoto, a long-time San Francisco Bay Area resident and Las Vegas retiree, passed away peacefully on March 7, 2019 in Las Vegas, Nevada at the age of 84 years. She was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii to Edward and Tsuruko Fukumoto in 1935 and later moved to Milwaukee, Wisconsin to attend college where she met and married the love of her life, Stan Fujimoto. Barbara will be remembered by her loved ones as being a very caring and generous person. When it came to family and friends, she always put others before herself. She enjoyed shopping, sewing, golfing, and playing the penny slots in her free time. However those who knew her really well will always remember her for the delicious meals she cooked. She is survived by her husband of 62 years, Stanley Fujimoto, her four children: Kyle (Karen), Mas, Teri (Wade) Rasmussen, and Mark, and her four grandchildren: Riley, Lauren, Kobe, and Ryan, all of whom brought great joy to her. She will also be lovingly remembered by her brothers: Stanley (Elaine) and Benjamin (Elmira) Fukumoto, her sister Karen (Leonard) Chun, and her sister-in-law, Gail Fukumoto. Services will be held on April 20th at 3:00 p.m. at Palm Cheyenne Mortuary, Las Vegas. Family and friends are invited to attend a reception immediately afterwards. In a nod to her Hawaiian roots, aloha or casual attire appreciated. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Our deepest condolences to the family and friends of the deceased
