There she met and married Yutaka (Tucker) Tanabe in 1948. They were together in Winnipeg until his untimely death in 1964. Left on her own, she worked as a hairdresser to raise her two children. Thirteen years later, with her children now successful adults, she met and married Tsunetsuga (Ted) Ikeda. She moved to Toronto, ON where she and Ted lived for 33 happy years until his death in 2010.
