Honolulu Star-Advertiser - - IN MEMORY -

Yuriko Yoshiyama, 85, of Honolulu, passed away on Oc­to­ber 13, 2017. She was a beloved wife, mother, grand­mother, sis­ter, aunty and friend. Yuriko grew up in Waipahu, and as a teenager worked be­side her mother in the plan­ta­tion fields. Af­ter grad­u­at­ing from Waipahu High School in 1950, she worked at Arakawa Gen­eral Store, then later as a teller at Bank of Hawaii. She mar­ried her hus­band Al­bert on Au­gust 11, 1962, and took on her most chal­leng­ing job - rais­ing her three chil­dren, Colin, Jon, and Kath­leen. Yuriko was a mem­ber of Manoa Val­ley Church and en­joyed wa­ter ex­er­cise, shop­ping, and talk­ing story over 4+ hour lunches with fam­ily and friends. She al­ways had a smile, hug and words of en­cour­age­ment for ev­ery­one she knew, and al­ways had food on hand to who­ever vis­ited the house. She had the gift of con­ver­sa­tion and made ev­ery­one she met feel com­fort­able and at ease. She will be re­mem­bered for her pos­i­tive, cheery at­ti­tude, car­ing heart, and strong faith in God. Yuriko’s great­est joy in life was her fam­ily, es­pe­cially her grand­chil­dren, Luke, Ja­dynn, Ally, Brooke, Hope, Leina and Casey. She will for­ever be their guardian an­gel.

Yuriko is pre­de­ceased by her par­ents Kama and Haruko Tsuhako, brother Shige (Betty) Tsuhako, sis­ter Mie (David) Tak­e­naka, and brother Ron­ald Tsuhako.

Yuriko is sur­vived by her hus­band of 55 years, Al­bert; chil­dren Colin (Chris), Jon (Carol) and Kath­leen (Ker­stan) Wong; brother Keiji (Amy) Tsuhako, sis­ter Shar­lene "Teru" (Mi­chio) Shishido, brother Den­nis Tsuhako, sis­ter He­len Tsuhako, brother Ernie (Jeanne Fu­jioka) Tsuhako and sis­ter-in-law Vicki Tsuhako; 7 grand­chil­dren; and many nieces, neph­ews and friends.
