Celebrating the Life of Miko Yamamoto

Location: Daly City, California

Visits: 34,048

This memorial was created to celebrate the life of Yoshiko (Miko) L Yamamoto of Daly City, California. Miko was born on June 12, 1937 in Honolulu and passed on February 28, 2016 at the Zen Hospice Guest House in San Francisco. Miko was loved by many and will be dearly missed by all of her friends and family.


Dear Family, Friends and Colleagues,

Miko had led a full and fascinating life - one that is not fully known to most of her family, friends and colleagues. Her life story is slowly being pieced together through old photos and connections with her different circles of friends.

Please feel free to contribute your memory and photos to this website. There are many photos without a date and identifier. Please help us fill in the blanks. If you prefer, you may also send your comments and photos to and we will post them on this site for you.

Thank you.

Family & Friends of Miko
