January 20, 1925 - December 23, 2022
In loving memory ~
With deep sorrow, we announce the passing of Setsuko Mae Aihoshi on December 23rd, 2022, just a month shy of her 98th birthday.
She is predeceased by her husband (married 67 years), Barney Aihoshi; parents Magohachi and Eimatsu Seki; sisters Sumiko Seki (Japan) and Theresa Kawai (Ontario). She is dearly loved and greatly missed by her son John; daughter Diane (Charles); grandchildren Kelsey (Greg), Shana (Jordan), Kirt, Mara, Gordon, Mahala; great-grandchildren Ashton, Kayden, Charley, Jett and Evie; sister Donna Moray (Ontario); brothers-in-law Herb Sakaguchi (Ontario), Nick Kaji (Ontario); sister-in-law Nora Kaji (Ontario); numerous nieces, nephews and friends.
Mom and Dad's love and endless generosity extended to all family and friends - amazing cottage get-togethers, trips to Hawaii, adventures with their Calgary Japanese club and so much more. But the greatest joy in life for Mom arrived in separate little bundles as each grandchild and great-grandchild came into her life. Even into her early '90s, Mom would dance about carrying a child in each arm! Later in life, Mom moved to Rosefield Care Centre in Innisfail where she received incredible care from Dr. Wing and all the staff. We can't thank Rosefield enough for the love, hugs and dances they showered on Mom. I'm sure now that things have come full circle and Mom is dancing once again with Dad.
Love you Mom, oodles and scads!
A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
