The Passing of Kimiko Yumoto-san

Kimiko san was a very active and valuable member of the Vermont Japanese community contributing much to international understanding. For many years Kimiko san enhanced the JASV’s biennial Matsuri with her beautiful Ikebana. Visitors flocked to her corner booth to watch as if by magic she created her elegant flower arrangements. She will be missed by all.

Following is a link to the Burlington Free Press obituary for the late Kimiko Yumoto, a very special human being. It says it all.
