Ascension Date: December 31, 2020
Our beloved brother and sister, CheonBo couple Tsukasa and Claudette Kambara, ascended to the Spirit World on December 31, 2020 at their home in Charleston, West Virginia.
Claudette grew up in Danville, Canada. She was well-known and beloved in the Charleston community as the local ‘Flower Lady,’ a business which she and Tsukasa created. Most of all, Claudette was known for her great dedication and love for God. She offered faithful service as the city leader of Charleston and State Pastor of West Virginia for many years and was a key member of FFWPU, ACLC, and UPF. Claudette was known for her warm, friendly smile, and had a loving heart for everyone she met.
Tsukasa, born in Miyazaki, Japan, had a passion and love for art. He was skilled in woodcarving, and especially loved creating abstract paintings, many of which were featured in local galleries and magazines as well as internationally in Tokyo.
Tsukasa and Claudette were Blessed in marriage in 1989 among 1,275 couples, and were registered in the CheongBo Won on October 10, 2020. They are survived by their four daughters, Choon Sung, Sarah, Rebekah, and Jessica who will hold a private service in their honor.
