She was predeceased by her dear husband Harry Kumakura in 1999. Married in 1959, they called Harry’s native Seattle their home for 43 years.

Misayo is also predeceased by beloved family: parents Tokutaro and Hatsuno Mori, brothers Sam, Susumu (& wife Kumi), and Bob Mori, brothers-in-law Wally Hanaoka and George Sugimura, and nieces Linda (Hanaoka) Nouchi and Carol Momoda. She leaves behind her beloved sisters Yoshiko Hanaoka and Misuko Sugimura; sisters-in-law Michiko Mori and Kay Mori; as well as beloved nieces, nephews, and friends.
Private family memorial service and burial will be held at a later date. Please no floral memorials or koden. If you would like to make a donation in Misayo’s memory, please do so to Atherton Baptist Homes,
