Keiko Fujiki Mochizuki, 79 passed away May 19, 2020, with family by her side. She was born to Inao and Fujiko Fujiki in Okayama, Japan. She was the second oldest of five children. Keiko spent most of her early years in Okayama, Japan. In 1966 she came to the United States and married Masao Jerry Mochizuki on April 8, 1967. She was employed many years at Lynn Wilson Foods until her retirement. Even after retirement, she worked part-time serving lunches at Scott Matteson Jr. High School. Keiko was a devoted wife as she cared for her husband after his diagnosis with Alzheimer’s. She was a wonderful mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. Always making sure everyone was fed in the house. We will all miss her cooking. She also enjoyed exercising, trips to Wendover, and watching the Utah Jazz. Our family would say she was the Jazz’s biggest fan. Over the years she found a love for bowling. She looked forward to her bowling leagues and lunches with her friends. Keiko was soft-spoken, kind-hearted, and very generous to all those that knew her. She always made others a priority above herself and her own needs. Her love for her family and friends will live forever in our hearts.
Keiko is survived by her two sons Tracy (Jalene) and Mark (Natalie), two daughters Carolyn (Adam) and Lisa (Craig), ten grandchildren and four great-grandchildren, her sisters Hiroko (Takao) Kosaka, Sachiko (Teruhiko) Okamoto, Yashuko (Seiichi) Yamada, and Emiko (Hiro) Mori. She is proceeded in death by her husband, father, and mother. Graveside service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Friday, July 10, 2020, at Larkin Sunset Gardens, 1950 East 10600 South in Sandy.
