Toshiko Goldsberry

Date of Death: September 9, 2015

Date of Birth: November 2, 1932


BRUNSWICK - Toshiko Goldsberry, 82 years old, died on Wednesday, September 9, 2015 after a short illness. Toshiko was born on November 2, 1932 in Negata, Japan. One of seven children, Toshiko was raised during WWII and had the immense responsibility of caring for her infirm mother and younger siblings at an early age. Toshiko's surviving siblings and their families still live in Japan.

Toshiko met her life-long sweetheart, Robert Goldsberry, when he was stationed at Yokosuka, Japan. The couple was married on June 25, 1958 and resided in Coronado, California. Married for 57 years, Toshiko and Robert raised their 3 children, David, Janet and James in various duty stations while Robert served in the US Navy. Throughout her life, Toshiko faithfully cared for family and friends. She was happiest when her loved ones were happy - she enjoyed cooking for her family, spending time with her grandchildren, playing with her cats, reading, gardening, quilting, making miniature furniture, and bird watching. She quietly gave the gift of joy to her family, friends, and acquaintances through her gentle, kind and caring nature; always putting others' needs before her own.

Toshiko worked at Health-Tex, Arrow-Hart, and L.L. Bean as a stitcher. She also worked in the Mess Hall at the Naval Air Station in Brunswick.

Her surviving family members include her Husband, Robert Goldsberry; her three children and their partners, David and Robbie Goldsberry, Tim and Janet Brewer, and James Goldsberry; and her four grandchildren, Sunny Goldsberry, Sam Goldsberry, Leah Goldsberry, and Max Goldsberry.

There will be a private, family memorial service.

Memorial donations can be made in her memory to the Coastal Humane Society, 190 Pleasant Street, Brunswick, Maine 04011.
