In the early 1900s, Shigeko’s parents farmed this land. When they moved back to Japan before WWII, they sold the land to Shigeko. Following WWII, Shigeko’s husband, Frank, opened a jewelry store in Seattle. In the 1950s Shigeko farmed her family land again, this time with raspberries. She used the money she earned to put her three daughters through college.
