We Remember

MORI, Yemiko

June 28, 1941 — July 2, 2024

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our wonderful wife, mom, grandma, and great grandma Yemiko Mori on Tuesday, July 2, 2024 at the age of 83.

Yemiko was born in Summerland, British Columbia on June 28, 1941 to her parents Tsuneo and Yoshiko. Mom’s greatest joy was spending time with her family. She especially enjoyed spending time with her 4 children, 9 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren. Mom loved to host sleepovers, beach or water park excursions, bowling, skiing, making their favourite dinners, endless variety of baking, getting slurpees or just watching movies with them. She never missed a birthday or graduation or the opportunity to let them know how much she loved them.

She will forever be loved and missed by her husband, Satoshi; her four children Carelyn (Wayne), Wade (Kelly), Janice, and Brenda (Jason); her grandchildren, Jordan, Robynne (Max), Christopher (Emily), Isabella, Mackenzie, Sophia, Nathan, Hannah, and Alexandria; and her great-grandchildren Victoria and Parker; her sister Miyeko (Howard); and many of her and Sat’s nieces, nephews, extended family members and friends.

Yemiko was predeceased by her first husband Yoshikazu Tabata, her parents Tsuneo and Yoshiko, siblings Yuki, Hideko, Kazuo, Isamu and her sister Tomiko.

Yemiko’s family would like to thank the amazing staff at Kelowna Hospice House for the loving care they provided during her short stay.  And a special thank you to her friend Debra, who’s warm friendship and caring attitude made moms difficult days brighter.

In lieu of flowers, the family wishes that you make a donation to the Kelowna Hospice House.

An informal gathering will be held on MONDAY, JULY 29, 2024, at 1:00 PM at KELOWNA MEMORIAL PARK CEMETERY (1991 Bernard Avenue, Kelowna).

    Uncle Sat, Carolyn, Wade, Janice, Brenda, condolences from Glenn, Isabella and Tova. When I think of Auntie Yem I can still hear the sound of her chuckle when she found something amusing, the same laugh she had from the time we met her to the last time I saw her. In spite of how infrequently we got up to Kelowna we often seem to run into her at Orchard Park which was always a happy surprise. Our thoughts are with all of you.
