Joan MIKI

MIKI, Joan Akemi. March 10, 1931 – March 9, 2012. It is with much sadness that we announce our beloved Joan passed away quietly early in the morning of March 9, 2012 the day before her 81st birthday. Joan was devoted to her family. She is predeceased by her parents and will be greatly missed by her brothers Patrick (Diane) and Henry (Mihoko), her nieces Kathy, Laureen, Nancy and Seiko, great-nephews Ryan, Adam, Alex and Luke and great-nieces Marli and Lainey. Joan trained in medical laboratory sciences and worked in a clinical setting before she began teaching at BCIT. She remained very active after retirement providing tremendous support to her parents and by extension, Nikkei Home. She was always interested and supportive of all family members. Joan led an exemplary life. She had a sense of adventure and curiosity which led her to travel extensively and explore many hobbies such as gardening, stained glass work and teddy bear making. Joan will be remembered for her openness, independence, selflessness and kind attention to others. Graciousness and generosity marked all aspects of her life. Joan’s family would like to thank Dr. Kevin Murphy at the Fraser Valley Cancer Agency. In addition, we are very grateful for the compassionate care she received from Dr. Maureen Adamson and the staff at the Maple Hill Hospice at Langley Memorial Hospital. A memorial service will be held at Valley View Funeral Home, 14660 – 72nd. Ave., Surrey, BC on Saturday March 24, 2012 at 2:00pm. In lieu of flowers, please consider donations to the Langley Hospice Society, 20660 – 48th Avenue, Langley, BC, V3A 3L6. Valley View
