Kimiko Tanaka | Age 88


Kimiko Tanaka left us at the age of 88, her life a beautiful blend of traditional values and modern resilience.

Kimiko was a respected member of the Saratoga Springs, New York community, having brought with her the rich traditions and culture of her Japanese heritage. She was an accomplished artist, known for her delicate brushwork in traditional calligraphy and watercolor painting, which she taught at the local community center for many years.

Her home was a hub of cultural exchange, where she hosted many events celebrating both her Japanese roots and the American community she grew to love. Kimiko’s garden was a local attraction, showcasing an exquisite combination of Eastern and Western horticulture.

She is survived by her two children, Naomi and Kenji; five grandchildren; and a close-knit community that became her extended family. Her husband, Hiroshi Tanaka, predeceased her, but she carried their shared dreams and memories with grace and fortitude.

Kimiko’s life will be honored in a ceremony rich with the customs she cherished. The service will be held in the tranquil setting of the Saratoga Peace Garden, next Sunday afternoon, where friends and family will gather to remember a woman whose strength and gentleness touched so many lives.
