Fumi was born in Vancouver, the eldest of four children. At the age of three she returned to Japan to live with her Grandparents until returning to Canada at the age of ten. Fumi was married to Koichi Fujiwara in 1941 and they were married for 56 years.

She is lovingly remembered by her children: Fred, Sally Urban Cooley, Fran (Len) Esler, Mary (Ken Morgan); her grandchildren: Marc (Laurel) Holmes, John (Lisa) Urban and Thomas (Renata) Fujiwara and her great grandchildren: Alexia Wolf and Julia Fujiwara.
