Kayser, Katharyn "Katie" Katie Kayser passed away on October 12, 2016 at her home in Laguna Woods, California. She was 92 years young. She is survived by her niece Kuni Omura and her husband Kaz; her nephew Dennis Inouye and his wife Jean and their children Yvonne Costello and her husband Mike, Lance Inouye and his wife Tiffany, and Thor Inouye and his wife Jessica; and children Chance and Grace; and her step-daughters Ginny and Nancy. Katie touched so many lives in her time with us. Warm and generous, with an incredible sense of humor; Katie was a great friend to many. Her musical talent on the piano was transcendent and brought joy to all. Growing up, Katie overcame the forced internment of Japanese Americans during World War II and rampant prejudice to become a pillar of the community. She converted to Catholicism when she married her late husband Ralph and was a strong supporter of the Church. While she had strong opinions on many subjects, she was always willing to listen with compassion and empathy. She will be deeply missed by all who knew her. May she rest in peace.
