Aiko Koyama Hatten, 89 of West Richland, left this world at 3:00 p.m., Thursday, December 21, 2022, at her home, surrounded by her loving family.
Aiko Koyama Hatten was born on Friday, January 13, 1933, in Tokyo, Japan to Tamizo and Mume (Namike) Koyama. She married Lowell Collins Hatten on August 17, 1955, in Tokyo, Japan. Aiko’s character was of vast wits and an abundance of substance, from childhood pranks to her ever-reaching brilliance in all endeavors she pursued. Not only a beautiful singer, she exemplified strength and courage, even during tough times, where sadness or fatigue was quickly displaced with the greater embodiment of her spirit: her love. Aiko loved to share her thoughts and conversations with her were always truly gratifying; consistently sincere and genuine thus, leaving our hearts warmed each visit. Aiko took great pride into learning and demonstrating her passion for knowledge into being a compassionate and loving sister, wife, mother, grandmother, friend, and successful bakery manager. Of many fond memories, she defined detail from crafting traditional cuisine to gardening, with such ease. In her latter days, she expounded on much of her life and all the things she was thankful for. She lived a full, profound, and bountiful life. Matthew 5:8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
Aiko reunites with her husband of over 60 years, Lowell Hatten of W. Richland; and is survived by brother, Katsutoshi (Myumi) Koyama; sister, Setsuko; sister, Yoshie; son, Richard (Connie) Hatten of Richland; daughter, Susan (Stanley) McPartland of Minden (Nevada); grandsons, Justin Hatten of Seattle and Ryan (Jennifer) Hatten of Chehalis; and 3 great grandchildren.
She is preceded in death by her husband, Lowell; parents, Tamizo and Mume Koyama; brother, Hiabo Koyama; and daughter, Joyce Jasper.
Her wishes were to have her (and husband’s) ashes spread from the Columbia River, to reach the Pacific, and to reach Japan.
As the first grandson of Aiko Hatten, it was always great to visit her. she never always acted too old considering her age and her great sense of humor, as well as getting to talk to her and know more about her. It was also always fun to play at her house or just explore it. She was a wonderful great grandma. May she rest in peace with god.
