Shizuyo (Suzie) passed away peacefully at Tofino General Hospital early Friday, March 11, 2016
Born December 1, 1933 in Steveston, BC, she grew up in Wakayama, Japan and moved back to Canada, living in Ucluelet BC, since 1960.
She is pre-deceased by her parents Yoshikazu and Toshiye Ikebata, and partners George Kimoto, then Nobuo Hamazaki.
She is survived by her sisters Hideyo Kurada (Hiroshi) and Yoshimi Takada (the late Koji), brothers Toyokazu Ikebata (Kiyoko) and Katsumi Ikebata (Kikuko), her children Caroline (Steve Musson), Daniel (Terry), and Linda Kimoto, and grand-children Jason and Alex Kimoto.
Well-known for her kindness and generosity, she was loved by all and will be missed.
Many thanks to Dr. O’Brien and the loving caregivers at Tofino General Hospital.
At her request, there will be no service. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in her name to The Tofino General Hospital Foundation.
