Kinko Shigeta Frank, born in Saga-Ken Japan on March 3, 1932 passed away on Thursday, February 7, 2019 at the age of 86.

 Kinko was born to Gisaku Shigeta (Father) and Kimayo Yamaguchi (Mother) and was one of ten children. She moved to the United States after marrying her husband, of over fifty years, Harry Frank, who passed away in 2006.  

 Not only did Kinko have an amazing work ethic as a dedicated wife and mother, but also a successful greenhouse and truck garden business owner with her husband. She was also involved in the community as an active member of St. John’s Lutheran Church. Kinko was determined in everything she put her mind to which included obtaining her naturalized citizenship. 

 Throughout the years Kinko was a great fisherwoman, cook, artist, quilter, sewer, and baker amongst many other talents and hobbies.  Her ultimate joy and passion were spending time with her husband, children, and their families traveling in the RV, camping, and fishing.

 Kinko is survived, loved, and remembered by her children Richard Frank (Tammy) of Las Vegas, NV, Diana Frank-Curtis (Jim) of Dover, Delaware, grandchildren (Shayne, Cory, Hailey, Anna, Reed), and great-grandchild (Jaxon Frank)

 Graveside services will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 13,  at 11:00 a.m. at the Laurel Cemetery. The family is grateful for the words and acts of kindness, however, in lieu of flowers, please feel free to make donations to St. John’s Lutheran Church. There will be a lunch served at St. John’s Lutheran Church following the graveside services.
