Shirley Michiko Titterington (Sagara-Makiyama) passed away with her family by her side on Sept 9, 2018 at the age of 83.
Born and raised in Honolulu, she moved to the mainland to attend college and raised her family in Monterey Park. She moved to Monrovia, then Seal Beach where she spent the last 15 years.
She is survived by her children David and Pamela; grandchildren Cary, Emiko and Kimiye; brother Calvin (Wilma) and sister Fran; as well as nephew Brian (Donnie), niece Jen and many other relatives.
The family chose to honor her life with a small, private celebration held at one of her favorite places, Las Brisas Restaurant on the Laguna Beach cliffs, where they released 83 butterflies on a beautiful, warm, sunny day.
The family would like to express their deepest appreciation to all those who have extended their caring wishes and thoughtful gestures.
