It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Yumiko Kawasaki, 68, of Toronto, ON, on Monday, December 23, 2019 at Sunnybrook Hospital. Yumiko was born November 29, 1951, a daughter of the late Kenichiro and Teruko (Mizuyabu) Kobayashi.
Yumiko was an occasional teacher who taught at Humber Valley Village Junior Middle School in Toronto. She enjoyed fishing and playing tennis. But more than anything she enjoyed spending time with her children. She enjoyed having her children at our home and making special dinners for them. Yumiko will be dearly missed by her husband, Doug, children, David Manabu Kawasaki, Christopher Satoshi Kawasaki, Jeffrey Yuzuru Kawasaki and Yukari Torasaki and daughters-in-law, Ashley and Elizabeth.
