She was preceded in death by her parents and her husband, Ralph Franklin Parsons, her sister, Hatsue Shimamura and her brother, Hideo Shimamura.

She was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and found great comfort in the teachings of Jesus Christ and through her personal prayers.

Yukie loved spending time with family and friends, dancing, listening to music, traveling, fishing, cooking, shopping, going to Atlanta Braves games and reading the newspaper everyday. She also developed her many talents through sewing, quilting, Japanese needlepoint, knitting, crocheting, making cards and coloring.

Yukie will be remembered for her kind, loving, and generous personality and will be greatly missed by her family and all who knew her.
