Obituary for Sumie Medoruma (Sugamori)

Sumie Medoruma passed away on December 3, 2018, at the age of 92. Born in Vancouver, the youngest child of Yae and Seitora Sugamori, she moved to Southern Alberta in 1942 where she met and then later married Tommy Medoruma. They shared 69 years together, most recently at AgeCare Seton in Calgary, where Tommy still resides. She was predeceased by her parents, brothers Mas and Ken, sisters Tosh and Kim, and daughter Donna. In Hardieville, then in Lethbridge, they raised four children who survive her. [Aileen] Midori (Barry), Darryl (Lisa), Mark (Cecile) and Carol (Jacques). Her grandchildren Aaron, Reiko (Ted), Janelle, Matt (Sam), Justin, Kiyomi (Mikael), Miyeko and her great-grandson Toshiro will forever cherish memories of the love and laughter they shared with her. Sumie's tiny stature belied her strength of character and the fierce determination that carried her through some difficult times, especially the loss of a young daughter and her family's forced move from Vancouver when she was just a teenager. Never exhibiting bitterness, it was her respectful and generous spirit, her smile and charming disposition, that many will remember when they think of her. Her lifelong devotion to her family was lovingly reciprocated in her final days as all her children and grandchildren gathered around her. Friends are invited to share their memories with Sumie's family on Sunday, December 9, 2018 between 1:00 and 3:00 pm at the Coast Hotel, 526 Mayor Magrath Dr. S, Lethbridge. Many thanks to the staff at AgeCare Seton for their compassionate care. Messages of condolences, photos and memories may be left at Please no flowers or Koden, but if desired, memorial donations may be made to the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre at Arrangements entrusted to the care of Choice Memorial Cremation & Funeral Services (403) 277-7343.
