Yoko Nonaka
Birth: Jul. 15, 1947, Japan
Death: Jan. 31, 2004
Palo Alto
Santa Clara County
California, USA

Yoko Nonaka, a private but multifaceted personality who was at ease with technology as well as the arts and world events, died at her home in Palo Alto from the consequences of MMMT, a rapidly invasive disease.

Yoko was known differently to the various circles she frequented. While neighbors saw her as the friendly face bringing food and gifts to the sick, co-workers knew her as a hard-working creative contributor with the highest ethical standards.

But she also had other avocations in which she excelled: literature, painting, cooking and entertaining, and interior decoration. Skilled in multitasking, prioritizing, and scheduling, despite a busy schedule she was always informed on current world events and the economy. She worried and acted with the same passion for world peace and community.

Yoko was an extrordinary person because she only saw the positive things in life. She was able to simply ignore all negative aspects; she was an extraordinary positive reinforcer.

Yoko is survived by her husband Dr. Giordano Beretta of Palo Alto, daughter Deanne Ecklund of Campbell, sisters Yoshiko Taniguchi of Kawanishi and Kumiko Tanaka of Miki, and mother Yuriko Nonaka of Kawanishi.
