In Memoriam - Teruko Moromi
We very much regret to inform you of the passing of, long time Chicago Okinawa Kenjinkai Member, Teruko Higa Moromi.
Originally from Nago, Okinawa, she came to the US in 1968 and settled in Addison, Illinois.
Teruko was 78 years old and passed away at home after a battle with leukemia on September 11, 2020.
Teruko and her late husband, Shigeru, owned and operated the Addison Nursery before retiring. They graciously and generously donated flowers for countless Chicago Okinawa Kenjinkai events.

Our condolences go out to her family.

A Little Fun from a Chicago Kenjinkai Alumni:
Mayumi Seino's son, Spencer (19) is living in Japan with his karate teacher and posted this video on YouTube.
He is enjoying Japan and would like to be a musician someday.
Good luck to you Spencer!
