1934 – 2024


April 18, 2024

Yoko Shinmoto, after a brief illness, passed away peacefully at the age of 89 on March 25, 2024. Yoko was born in Japan and immigrated to the United States where she was a long-time resident of Torrance, California.

She is the last of the family founders who established Southern California Nursery which was located in Culver City, California. This iconic nursery was where some of her nieces and nephews worked where they learned the value of determination and hard work and it influenced many of their future career choices.

Yoko is survived by her daughter, Kathy and her family; four sisters in Japan and an aunt in Hawaii. At Yoko’s request, a private service and burial will be held. In lieu of flowers, donations in her memory can be made to the American Heart Association, Keiro or a tree planted in her honor.
