Condolence From: Betty A. Chastain
Condolence: I'm so sorry about your loss. I enjoyed knowing, Yuriko, and her wonderful family.
She was such a sweet, genteel, soft-spoken person.
I bought 2 of her children's books and shared with my 2 daughters and my Third Grade Class at Northwood Elementary School.
Because of her bringing Japanese companies to Franklin, our school system felt they should offer a
Japanese Language Class to better meet the needs of the anticipated Japanese people arriving.
I was the first to sign up for the class that met at 6 a.m. at Custer Baker Middle School that was
taught by Kathy Streit. I really enjoyed it.
It wasn't very long before I could use what I'd learned b/c when I was leaving our post office on N. Main St. that a Japanese mother & her son were exiting as I was entering.
I immediately greeted them in Japanese as they simultaneously greeted me in English.
We both got a laugh out of that.
I'm sure she will be greatly missed by her loving, devoted family as well as many others in the community who knew her & her family.
You have my deepest sympathy!

Condolence From: Rich and Karen Gotshall
Condolence: Yu-long: We are so sad to hear of Yuriko's passing. She was a wonderful person and a dear friend. We will miss her, as will our daughter Katie. She studied "survival" Japanese with Yuriko before she traveled to Japan with her grandmother when she was in fourth grade. That experience led her to study Japanese in high school and college. Please know that you will remain in our thoughts for now and in the future.

Condolence: Yu-long,

I was so devastated and saddened to learn of Yuriko's recent death.

Words are so inadequate at a time like this, but please know that my heart is going out to you. And if you need anything at all, I stand ready to help.

Yuriko was so very kind to me, Yu-long: How vividly I remember her going with Franklin College students and me to Israel in the early 1980's. While there, she was so energetic that she "ran the students into the ground." We climbed a mountain (Masada), and Yuriko took off like a shot from a gun, leaving the rest of us in her dust and struggling to keep up. 😊

And then, when I was preparing to graduate from the Japanese university in Tokyo, Yuriko was so nice that she translated my graduation announcement from English into Japanese so that both languages might be featured.

I will never forget those, and many other, acts of kindness.

So, I am grieving with you, my friend, and giving thanks that I knew such a wonderful person.

Peace and comfort to you, Yu-long.

Cliff Cain

Condolence: Dr. Ling,

I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your beloved Yuriko. She was a beautiful and kind person, and I always enjoyed seeing her when I would visit your home for tea or to work on something together. We have been good friends for over 20 years now, so please know that I am here to help.

Condolence From: Jennifer (Wallis) Weltich
Condolence: I’m so very sorry to hear of Professor Ling’s passing. I remember her fondly when I was a student at Franklin College. My mom (Joyce Mount) was friends with her as well. I remember taking Yuriko’s “Japanese Societies” class during a winter term and I’ll always especially remember how beautiful she was when she performed a traditional tea ceremony for the class. My condolences to the family who I’m sure are heavily mourning the loss of this lovely lady.
