Below is an article that was issued after Barbara Matsui passed. She was a beautiful woman with the voice of an angel. .... She passed away at a very young age. After seeing there was no date known of her death I had to look up the story and wanted to share it. This was by Mayor Anne Rudin......

Barbara had an absolutely gorgeous, velvetty voice and sunny personality.  She sang at our talent shows and at the senior dinner.  Many might not remember that she was legally blind because she did not receive adequate medical treatment  when her family was removed to a relocation camp during WWII.  I believe she graduated from college and become a school teacher despite her disabilities.  A truly inspirational individual...

A heavenly voice indeed.  I had no idea why she had lost her sight.  She simply glowed with kindness and sunshine.

Barbara, remember how we caught the bus together in the eight grade.  You were a wonderful gal and a good friend.  Just last year I was reaacquainted with your memory when the science teacher at my grandkids school talked about the time when your brother was best man at her relative's wedding.  Thinking of you brings warmth to my heart.  Love always, Sybil
