Maiko was born in Niigata Japan in 1977, and moved to Vancouver in 1993. She studied at Simon Fraser University, earning a Bachelors of Arts in Sociology. Maiko loved dogs, especially her pug Elmo, who spent 15 wonderful years by her side.

Maiko was kind, loyal, loving and gentle and the best friend and wife to Jimmy.
She will be deeply missed by her family, the Suratos clan and many wonderful friends.
The family sends sincere thanks to the nurses at St. Paul’s Palliative Care unit and the nurses and caretakers at St. John’s Hospice.
