Yoshi passed away on September 17th, 2017 at the Wolf Creek Care Center in Grass Valley California after a several-month struggle with cancer. She was 72.

Yoshi was born Virginia Eileen Soderberg to her parents Margaret and Clyde Soderberg on October 21st 1944 in San Pedro, California. She was very spiritual with a great love of nature and the human spirit and was well known for her deep caring of others.

She is survived by her sister Karen; three sons Zac, Leon and Ben; niece and nephews Jan, Erik and Jon; and five grandchildren, Ian, Isaac, Neylan, Aria and Nicholas.

She is preceded in death by her parents Margaret and Clyde and her brothers Pete and Chris.

Although faced with difficulties throughout her life related to traumas incurred during childhood, Yoshi shined through becoming a very caring mother and pursuing an abundance of practices including massage therapy, addiction counseling, and herbal treatments. She was a gentle, compassionate, and loving person who enjoyed horses, angelic music, and walks in nature. Yet she also had an intense quality driven to be a self-disciplined student persistent in the pursuit and sharing of spirituality and truth.

She will be greatly missed be everyone who knew her.
