She loved her job and especially enjoyed watching the children on her route growing up. Her children also loved her job as she would bring home so many Christmas presents from her customers who clearly loved her. Her loving husband of 62 years, Willard A. Hashimoto, Sr., passed away on September 27, 2016. She was the eldest of 8 children born to Sabas and Maria Oasay.
