It is with great sadness that we must inform you that Ritsuko Nakata, President of IIEEC, has passed away on September 1st at the age of 77.

She had been undergoing medical treatment at home, but her condition took a sudden and unfortunate turn. Considering the current circumstances with COVID-19, we held a small closed family funeral on September 3rd.

Please accept our sincere apology for not announcing immediately.
We would like to extend our deepest gratitude for your kindness during her lifetime.

Also, because of the current conditions, we are declining any visits, ko-den, or flowers. We would appreciate it if you could remember her in your hearts instead. We are quite sure she would appreciate it.
