96, passed away peacefully on December 1, 2019 at home in northern California surrounded by her family. She serenely went home to join her late husband John and her oldest daughter Dawn. She was born in Pahoa, Hawaii almost 97 years ago. Takako retired in 1987 as a Library Technician after 22 years of service from the University of Hawaii Hamilton Library in Honolulu. Her fondest remembrances both then and now, are of her "gang" of retiree friends who have kept close contact over the years no matter where she was. She enjoyed being with her family most of all, doing anything from travel with daughters Dawn, Lorene Wong (Wyman), Karen Mizokawa and adopted daughter Yvonne Lim Warren (Craig); to cruising Alaska with grand- daughters Aruni Pierluissi (Frank) and Udeni Rosario (Robert) or playing ball and enjoying the baking of granddaughter Amanda Warren. She felt so completely honored and lovingly cared for by her personal RN Wyman Wong, that she gathered him in her heart as her only son. Takako is also survived by 4 step-grandsons and 3 step-great- grandchildren in California and Hawaii. She leaves behind nieces and nephews on the mainland and Hawaii. The family is honoring Takako's request not to have services. Per her wishes, no koden please. Instead, donations in her memory may be made to the Marysville Buddhist Church 125 B Street, Marysville, CA 95901 or to your favorite charity.
Our deepest condolences to the family and friends of the deceased
