Chiyoko Kinjo Copeland


February 5, 1942 ~ December 15, 2017

Our mother Chiyoko Kinjo Copeland, age 75, passed away in Layton, Utah, on December 15, 2017. She was born February 5, 1942, on Okinawa, Japan, to Saburo and Ushi Kinjo and was the middle child of five daughters and two sons.

Chiyoko was a unique and caring person who touched the lives of all who knew her. Chiyoko was a dedicated mother who loved her family and faithfully worked hard to provide for them.

Our mom had a green thumb, a skill she learned from her Asian culture which she highly respected, and enjoyed working in her vegetable garden and loved growing beautiful roses. She was as beautiful as the roses she grew and will be missed. She is survived by her son, Rusty, of Oregon; and daughter, Teresa of Utah.

Please join us on Saturday, January 20, 2018, for the viewing from 10 a.m. to 12 noon, after which will be a service and a luncheon at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints located at 3290 North 1050 East, Layton, Utah.

Services under the direction of Myer's Mortuary of Layton.
