Then transferred back to Japan and after a couple years there, returned to the US and settled in Vacaville, CA in 1962. Her husband passed away in 1964 and she remarried in 1969 to Yuki Takeda. Her husband of 49 years passed away in 2018. She worked for over 10 years as a nurse’s aide at Windsor House Convalescent Hospital and private duty care. She was active in Vacaville Garden Club, Ladies Golf League and several Bridge Clubs. She loved working in her flowers and was known for her beautiful gardens.
