Obituary for Miyako Larimer

Miyako Larimer, born in Kyoto, Japan in 1931, Miya lived through WWII and married her American GI. Together they traveled and served in the Air Force for 20 years. During that time they had two sons, David and Don, and moved many times. Miya studied cosmetology and became a hairdresser and remained working until she finally retired at 83. Miya loved to dance, sing and spend time with her family. She also loved martial arts. Starting at age 60 in Taekwondo, she completed her third degree black belt at age 80…wow! Miya was always happy and had a bright and sweet spirit. She said God always takes good care of me, especially as she put her faith in Jesus as her Savior at age 65. She was beloved and loved her sons David and Don and their wives Valerie and Dana and especially her granddaughter Emily. She will be missed here but we celebrate her homecoming with Jesus. I go and prepare a place for you. I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. John 14:3
