Sachiko grew up in Japan, and worked as a fashion (editorial) and runway model after graduating from school.

Sachiko enjoyed reading, watching television, getting together with friends, and ballroom dancing.
Sachiko and George moved the family to West Linn, OR in 2009 to be closer to their daughter, her husband and only grandchild, Jarod.
Sachiko will return to Hawaii, for her final committal service later this year. She will be laid to rest with her husband at the Hawaii State Veterans’ Cemetery in Kaneohe, Hawaii. A small portion of her ashes will also be scattered near her birthplace in Tokyo, Japan.
