AKIKO HIRATA, 81

The matriarch of the CHATTER typing clan died Monday, March 30. She was diagnosed with lung cancer last summer.

A service will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday at Pershing Memorial Hospital in Brookfield, Mo., where Mom worked for many years.

Many people in Brookfield knew her by her American name, Jo Ann Davis. Everyone knew her as a big heart inside a tiny body.

It'll be OK. She said so herself.

So sorry to hear about your mom Ron. She was very sweet and a great cook and very good at thumping with a broom big smelly lumps that would occasionally be passed out on her couch in the late 1970's and early 1980's. Those were the days my friend. Hang in there.
