Maybel Chiyoko Date passed away peacefully October 29th, 2010 in Reno, NV. She was born in Sanger, California, January 22, 1922; the daughter of Harry and Yaeno (Kodama) Hananouchi and graduated from Pescadero High School.

Maybel's family lived in many areas of California before being sent to the Tanforan Relocation Center and then to Topaz, Utah. After leaving "camp" her family relocated to Reno, where she met and married Frank Date.

Maybel spent most of her 88 years alongside her husband, fishing, hunting, cooking, baking, and gaming. Above all, though Maybel loved to bowl and when asked how long she would continue to bowl; her response was until the day she died. She kept to her word and did not stop until she became ill this summer; and anyone who saw her bowl can tell you what a sight it was to see.

She married Frank Date who preceded her in death. An article was done on their marriage in the Reno Gazette Journal dated January 8, 1947.

For many years Frank and Maybel owned the American Fish Market, and when the Market closed Maybel worked at Nevada Seafood until her retirement.

She is preceded in death by her husband of 61 years Frank Date, parents Suetaro "Harry" Hananouchi and Yaeno Kodama.

Maybel is survived by her children Kenneth, Sharon, Alan and Curtis Date; her two beautiful granddaughters Sarah and Nicole; sisters Lena Date ( Modesto, CA), Micky Yoshida (Turlock, CA) and brothers Isaac Hananouchi ( Belmont, CA), Mike Hananouchi (San Mateo, CA) and many nephews and nieces.
