Lovingly called Memaw by her grand and great-grandchildren, she adored her three sons and loved to dote on her family and friends.

She never met a stranger and greeted everyone with a hug. All who knew her loved her and felt the depths of her kindness. She lived her life in accordance with this Okinawan proverb:
Shikinoo chui shiihii shiru kurasuru. - Let's live helping each other in this world.
