Miyuki Broadwater

January 9, 1937 ~ July 5, 2018 (age 81)

Beloved Mother and wife, Miyuki Broadwater (Kajita), age 81, of Spokane Valley, WA peacefully passed away at home surrounded by her loved ones on Thursday, July 5th, 2018 after a long courageous battle with IPF.  She was born and raised in Nagasaki, Japan and as an 8-year-old child-survivor of the Atomic Bombing of World War II, became a life-long champion of peace and happiness for all people through her Buddhist practice.  She was a seamstress by trade and came to the United States in 1965 after marrying her devoted husband of 52 years, William Broadwater, a currently retired US Air Force CMSgt.  She was predeceased by her parents, Bengo and Toki Kajita, and her sister, Misao Ide. She is survived by her husband, William, daughter, Christy, sister-in-law, Carol Silbaugh Broadwater (Bob Coleman), niece Sally Chambers (Robbie Chambers) and grand-nieces, Lauren and Kristen Chambers. The family wishes to especially thank Horizon Hospice for the compassionate care they provided in her final days, to the Booey family, Toshiko and Ken Lien, Kiyo Thomas and the SGI members for their support, lifelong friendships, sincere kindness, and love toward a very special and unforgettable lady. A Memorial Service in celebration of Miyuki will be held on Sunday, July 22, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. at the SGI-USA Spokane Buddhist Center, 1717 West 6th Street, Spokane, WA.
