Chi Terazawa passed away of natural causes on November 2, 2010 at The Climbing Rose Care Home in Las Vegas Nevada. Another Rokunosuke Terazawa generation has come to an end. She resided at 48 West Broadway (300 South) in the Downtown district of Salt Lake City, Utah at the time of her death.

Born December 9, 1914 in Sugar City, Idaho, the fifth child of Rokunosuke and Chiyo Narumi Terazawa, Chi spent her childhood in Sugar City and her adult life in Los Angeles and Salt Lake City.

She was a member of the LDS Church and served a mission to the Japanese people in Hawaii. After returning from her mission, she worked for the Genealogical Department of the Church. While there, she organized small group trips for her co-workers.

She enjoyed it so much and was bitten by the travel bug, so she and her sisters established Chi's Tours Travel Agency. She became a world traveler and personally escorted group tours and cruises for over fifty years.

She was preceded in death by her parents, brother, Riuichi Terazawa, sisters, Hede Shimoda, Terue Kawai, Toshi Terazawa, and Wuta Tsuya, brother-in-law, Hideo "Eddie" Kawai, nieces, Marjorie Kawai, Mitsie Schaap, and Janet Beck, nephews, Paul Kawai and Roland Tsuya. She is survived by her brother-in-law, Roy Tsuya, nieces, May Farr, Donna Nakashima, Mary Jane (Bill) Siebenberg, Becky Shimoda, Veda (Robert) Schaap, April Bosworth, Toy (David) Kahane, Joy Joslyn, nephews, David (Venda) Kawai and Ricky Tsuya, nephew-in-law, Bruce Beck, niece-in-law, Jacqueline Tsuya, and many extended family members.

A memorial service will be held at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, December 11, 2010 at her LDS Ward located at 142 West 200 North (northwest behind the LDS Conference Center.)
Chi was buried on her birthday next to her sister, Toshi.
