At 42 years old, Kate Goodman was not prone to the flowery language that the Herald used when writing about the two.

Having lost her U.S. citizenship as a result of her marriage to someone "ineligible for citizenship", Kate Alice Goodman Inazawa and Reverend Joseph K. Inazawa left for Japan. Documents for the Presybterian mission in Japan reveal their residence there by 1921. Kate Inazawa is noted as alive and living in Kamakura, Japan, in a 1954 news item in the Great Bend Tribune newspaper in Kansas, forty-four years after her marriage.
