NOMA, Michiko - Peacefully, in her sleep, in the comfort of her home, Michiko passed away, on October 13, 2016 at the age of 88 years.
Beloved wife of Yoshio for 66 years. Deeply missed by her children Ken (Donna), Tosh (predeceased) and Ann (Emmett) Pearce. Baa-chan to Michael, Christopher and Kazuo.
Born in Kagoshima, Japan, Michiko and Yoshio married in 1950. Shortly after they welcomed their sons into the family and later their only daughter. In 1959 Yoshio was able to bring his family to Canada after he established himself here with a job and a home for his family. They enjoyed many years together as a family and all of the milestones that came with it.
She will be dearly missed by her family and friends both in Canada and Japan. The past year and a half have been hardest for Michiko and her family as she battled against kidney disease. They are thankful for the wonderful care of their family Dr. Morry Black and Dr. Black's staff who has been there to support and care for Michiko over the years.
At the time that Michiko passed away a great support to the family was P.C. Adam Baglieri from the Hamilton Police Department. He was there to assist them in their time of need and his kindness will never be forgotten.
Michiko will be remembered by her family and friends during a time of visitation at Cresmount Funeral Home on Thursday, October 20, 2016 from 9-11 a.m. A private service and Innichment will be held at White Chapel Memorial Gardens.
In keeping with her wishes, cremation has taken place. In her memory, donations to St. Joseph's Kidney Department would be appreciated.
