Kiyo Matsuyama (94) passed away peacefully in her sleep early morning on Jan. 9, 2012. She was the oldest sibling to four younger brothers, Henry, Shig, Jeff and Noboru, and was a wonderful wife to her pre-deceased husband Kiyoharu, whom she spent 62 very happy years with.

Kiyo was always perfectly dressed no matter what the occasion; even as her health started to deteriorate she would always have her nails manicured. She will certainly be missed by her three sons Fred (Karen), Bobby (late wife Joyce), and Steve (Melissa); grandchildren Debbie Lim, Lili (Jeff) Hutchins, Denise (Ming) Lai, Tamaryn (Thomas) Thompson, Krystal Matsuyama, and Victor Matsuyama; great-grandchildren Gary, Michael, Brady, Maddie, Mia, and Kisa.

Funeral services will be held privately at Higashi Honganji Buddhist Temple. (213) 626-0441
