Tamiko Krell (Tami) was born on January 10, 1932 in Kumamoto, Japan. She lived with her adoptive parents and worked in their candy store and then worked at the Post Office. Tamiko grew up during World War II and had many stories of those times. She met and married Clinton Krell in 1950; and moved to America, settling in Idabel, Oklahoma. They had one son, George.
Tamiko was a homemaker and mother for most of her life. She was the perfect homemaker, and the perfect hostess and a fabulous cook. Truly a kind and gracious woman with many friends – she was always looking to help someone who needed it. She loved Elvis, several Japanese singers, playing cards, horse racing, and going to casinos, and of course, going to see her friends.
Tamiko is survived by her son George Krell(Lori), and 5 grandchildren, Dallas(Matt), Clint(Soraia), Sarah, Cassidy(Josh), and Rachel(Sam), and several great-grand children.
