Toshi Obara (nee Masuda)

It is with great sadness we announce that Mom passed away on Thursday evening after a courageous and long struggle with pulmonary fibrosis. Toshi was predeceased by her loving husband Casey in 2013. Survived by her son Barry (Colleen), daughter Joanie (Wayne)Trowsdale and grandchildren Stephanie, Shaun (Shannon) and Robert. Survived also by her four sisters Miyo Hamasaki, Betty Nishiyama, Nancy (Herb) Morino, Chris (Herb) Kikuta; brother Joe Masuda; and numerous nieces and nephews. Mom was born in Rosedale, raised in Fanny Bay, Coombs and Toronto and spent majority of her married life in Passmore and Victoria.

Mom’s lifelong passion was her family for whom she showed unconditional love. Always warm, gracious and hospitable she was loved and admired by many. We will all miss her dearly. At her request there will be a private service.
