Japanese woman, 90, named world’s oldest office manager

UPI – A 90-year-old Japanese woman who has worked for the same company since 1956 earned a Guinness World Record as the world’s oldest office manager.

Yasuko Tamaki (pic below), who will celebrate her 91st birthday on May 15, still works five days a week at Sunco Industries for seven-and-a-half hours a day.

“All I did was doing what I’m expected to do for 90 years, so I don’t know what to say! I am truly touched,” Takami told Guinness officials upon receiving her certificate.

Takami said achieving such a long tenure at the company came naturally.

“I think it’s just an accumulation. I always thought that I was born to be of help to someone. So I want to do things that make chairman, managers and other staff happy. That remains my lifelong goal,” she said.

The office manager said she has no plans to retire. “Once a year ends, then there is another. So I hope to keep on going like that,” she said.
