Takiko
Wine Tasting

Takiko was our first Guest, we believe, from Japan! Taki, 94, died in our Blue Room surrounded by daughter Tina, daughter-in-law Kathy, our Navigator John and our volunteer Patty. Taki was under the care of Guiding Light Hospice.

Taki survived WWII in Japan – living with her family in an underground bunker in Nagoya for two years after their home was destroyed. She went on to work as a typist at the US Air Force base in Okinawa, and that’s where she met a handsome Air Force fella named Wayne (now deceased). The two were married and eventually made their way to San Antonio.

We were honored to care for Taki and will think of her, Tina and Kathy so often.
