The family was able to emigrate to the United States in 1956, and they made their home in Sacramento. Hatsue was active in the Koyasan Fujin Kai for many years. She enjoyed cooking for family and friends, gardening, traveling, and was also an avid reader of Japanese fiction and non- fiction. She was predeceased by her husband, Tsuneichi, and her son, Yasuo.
