However, Toshio Ozaki points out that if she had sent him to the hospital in the first place, then his death would not have come to pass. Enraged, she takes it out on Motoko for nagging him about his health and blames her for his death. She later dies after Shihori Maeda with Motoko brutally beating her (Tomiko) in fury for denying the help her little girl needed.
