FUKAGAI, PEGGY Y., 94, passed away at home in San Francisco on November 4, 2010, from complications of Alzheimer’s disease. Wife of the late Kozo Fukagai for 51 years. Mother to Sylvia (William) Corrigan and Cynthia (Mike) Sugawara. Grandmother to Filip, Stefanie and Nick Sugawara.

Peggy surrounded her life with love of family, friends, pets, art, and music.  She sang in numerous functions, including the chorus of the Light Opera performed at Stern Grove. In 1951 she sang at the Opera House for the S.F. Treaty of Peace signing. She formed the Satsuki Kai chorus, which continues to this day.

Her family is forever grateful for the incredible loving care she received for nearly 11 years from Uinita Puafisi.

We will miss Peggy, who inspired and nurtured us and showed a loving passion for life.

It was her earlier request that private services be held.
