(85), beloved wife, mother and grandmother passed peacefully, surrounded by her family on April 11, 2010.  She is survived by loving husband, Charlie, daughters Michele & Mary (Jeremy), son Robert, grandchildren Kyle, Brianna and Emiko, & grand-dogs Rita & Karenin.  Toshiko was born on July 12, 1924, in Lahaina, Maui, Hawaii to Chokame and Tsuru Hokama.  She loved traveling through the years to Japan, China, Alaska & Puerto Rico.  She valued her friends and family, which resulted in wonderful life-long friendships and relationships.  She also took great pride in owning her own jewelry business, Monarch-Covina, for many years, where she counted many of her customers as dear friends.  After retiring, she found joy in volunteering at Keiro Nursing Home, visiting her grandchildren and taking a recent 3-week trip to Lanai.  She will be remembered for her loving, compassionate heart, which she extended to her husband, Charlie, her kids, grandchildren, grand-dogs and all those she came in contact with.

A memorial service will be held at Faith United Methodist Church, 2115 West 182nd Street, Torrance, CA on Tuesday, April 20 at 2:00pm.  Family requests that flowers be omitted and for casual attire.
