Matsuoka (松岡,Matsuoka) was the mother of two daughters, including Yuki Matsuoka. She was married to her husband. Being a housewife, she had a relatively normal life taking care of her family and the house.
At some point, she married her husband. Together they had two daughters, including their younger one named Yuki. Matsuoka was a housewife while her husband worked a normal company job.
Matsuoka's husband was in line for a promotion to section chief, when he was suddenly issued a transfer instead. She was upset because it meant the family would have to move, despite having not paid off the mortgage on their house. Matsuoka called the office of Yuki's school to have her come home early. Once Yuki arrived, she explained everything to her. The transfer was later called off, returning the Matsuokas' life back to normal. Several days later, Tsukushi Makino had dinner with the family and spent the night. After Yuki and Tsukushi left in the morning, Matsuoka was visited by a boy who asked about Tsukushi. He also told her "I just want to say that I don't plan to cause your family any trouble." Finding him "strange," she quickly rushed inside her home and locked the door.
Sometime later, Matsuoka became concerned over Yuki sneaking out at night and discovered a list of buildings in her room. She confronted her daughter one morning, but she refused to reveal what she was up to. Yuki asked her mother to be understanding, telling her that "It'll be over soon."
Matsuoka had a similar appearance to her youngest daughter. Her face shape, nose, and eyes were nearly identical to Yuki's. She had short, curly hair. Matsuoka was often seen wearing an apron.
