Hisae (Miyake) Springstead came to the U.S. with her husband, Clarence “Clancy” Springstead, following his U.S. Military service served in Japan.

They settled in Bettendorf, IA where they enjoyed their life and retirement years together.
Hisae had a talent for creating pottery, origami, cooking, and gardening. She had a passion for art and music and was vibrantly independent. She collected many beautiful pieces over the years and her home was always warm and inviting. Hisae was very devoted to many friends and family. She will be deeply missed by all those who loved her, at Ridgecrest Village, and the many others far beyond. She leaves behind her remaining family in Japan.
Rest in peace, our sweet friend, until we meet again….
