Yoshiko (Ashida) McIrvin was born on January 25, 1939 in Omura, Nagasaki, Japan.
On July 7, 1970 Yoshiko married Delbert McIrvin in Fukuoka, Kyushu, Japan. They lived in Sasebo, Nagasaki, Japan until August 1971. After the birth of their daughter, Linda, Delbert made the decision to retire from the Navy and return to Sidney where his mother lived and raise their family.
Yoshiko was a very strong and caring woman. She loved to sew and for years made all of her own clothes, Linda’s clothes and her mother-in-law’s clothes. She loved spending time with her family and cooking their favorite Japanese dishes. She always said “you likea eat, I likea cook, you no likea eat, I no likea cook”.
Yoshiko was a great person with the strongest will. She will be greatly missed by all those she touched.
Yoshiko is survived by her daughter Linda and husband Todd Brauer of Sidney and granddaughters Victoria Brauer and Janay Brauer of Sidney.
Yoshiko was preceded in death by her parents Takashi and Ume Ashida, her father and mother-in-law Orlie and Goldie McIrvin and her husband Delbert McIrvin.

So sorry for your loss Linda and Todd. I had the great opportunity to sample Yoshiko's tasty cuisine when she cooked for the staff at Central Elementary more than once. Delicious. Delbert was so proud of her Japanese dishes and was happy to share with all of us at Central. Happy memories.
