Following the conclusion of World War II, Mrs. Furuno relocated to Amakusa, Kumamoto Prefecture, her husband’s place of birth. There, she pursued a career as a dressmaker specializing in traditional Japanese attire. Her nephew Kazumasa describes her as someone who possesses a laid-back attitude and does not let minor things bother her.

She passed away in Amakusa, Kumamoto Prefecture, Japan, on 8 July 2019. At the time of death, she was the oldest living person in Kumamoto Prefecture.

LongeviQuest congratulates Tsurue Furuno family on her posthumous recognition.
