Shizuka's mother is a very kind woman. She is very affectionate to Shizuka and her friends. She appears in many episodes in the series. In many episodes, when Nobita comes to Shizuka's house either show some gadget or call her to his house for homework or to play or else he comes to play and sometimes study at her house, Shizuka's mother is often seen telling Nobita that she has gone to the library,or the market,or to her piano/violin class or worst case she is with Dekisugi.

Her name possibly is revealed to be Michiko from the episode in which Nobita and Doraemon went to the past to see young Tamako. She gave Tamako a novel named "Long Legged Gentleman" as a gift before she moved away.

In the Doraemons Special, it is revealed that she was once a successful violinist and has been with her future husband since high school. She had a remarkable resemblance to her future daughter. She has also been a good friend of Tamako since then.

She has an artist father, who is the maternal grandfather of Shizuka.
