Joyce (Takeuchi) Hirota to be remembered

Here is the obituary provided by Fukui Mortuary. Now theirs states the memorial service to be at the community center at 11 a.m. on Feb. 9th. Now I'm not sure where it is, either at the church or the community center. Wait for the Sunday obituary in the paper I guess to find out for sure. There is a viewing this Sunday, Feb. 3rd at Fukui Mortuary from 2-5 p.m.

Go to Fukui's website, www.fukuimortuary.com, and there's an obituary for Joyce.

HIROTA, JOYCE MIYE, age 49, passed away unexpectedly on Jan. 28, 2008. Beloved wife of David Hitoshi Hirota; mother of Jolyene Midori and Robert Takashi Hirota; daughter of Takashi Ben and Emi Takeuchi; daughter-in-law of Shigeko Sally Hirota; sister of Joan Etsuko Takeuchi; sister-in-law of Jan Natsuko Hirota and John Shigeto (Marinel) Hirota; she is also survived by many uncles, aunts, cousins and other relatives here and in Hawaii. *the family respectfully requests that flowers be omitted for the service. Memorial service will be held on Sat. Feb. 9, 2008, 11:00 A.M. at Venice Japanese Community Center, located at 12448 Braddock Dr., Los Angeles, CA 90066

Joyce (Takeuchi) Hirota's husband Dave, says that she died last night from a massive heart attack. If you would like to send a special message to be posted or a much more current photo, please send it to vhs.spiritof76@sbcglobal.net.
Joyce and I grew up on the same street a few doors down from each other. We were in a lot of the same classes throughout elementary school till Junior High and would see each other there after at the same schools.
Service arrangements will follow this note.

We are so saddened of the loss of Joyce. Her contributions will be greatly missed by the many organizations she was an integral part of and the entire community mourns her loss. She has left a tremendous legacy behind in Dave and her children and all of the people she has touched during her lifetime.
Our deepest heartfelt sympathies to the Takeuchi and Hirota families,
Carey and Vicki Tokirio
