Michie Murakami died on March 26, 2018, in her home after a brief illness. She was preceded in her death by her husband of 71 years, Yoshio Murakami. Michie was born in Los Angeles, California, and grew up on a farm in the Lomita area. She and the family were relocated to Tule Lake during the second World War. After the war she married Yoshio and spent some time in Japan before retuning to live in Los Angeles for the remainder of their lives.
Although they never had children of their own, they were loved as second parents to the children of her sister, Eiko and her husband George Muraoka. Her nephews; Kazuo and Jerry; niece; Julie, who loved their Auntie Michie and Uncle Yoshio.
Michie loved animals and was loved by them in return. She had a caring and considerate nature and could laugh at herself. We will miss her gentle presence in our lives.
