Akiko was happily married to Willie for 69 years. She lovingly raised her sons Kevin and Kelly, and they shared many special times together. Akiko enjoyed family pets, and they had several furry friends during her lifetime. She really enjoyed socializing with people, her smile would light up the room, and she had a great laugh. She was one of the kindest people you would meet, and she never spoke badly of anyone. She will be greatly missed.
