Obituary of Santosh Post
Tosh Post passed away on Thursday, October 11, 2018, surrounded by her loving family and friends. Born and raised in Kuala Lumpur, she graduated from Cambridge College – Malaysia with a degree in English Literature. She proceeded to spend five years as a high school teacher after graduating from the Specialist Teacher’s Training Institute in 1978. Tosh arrived in the United States in 1983 and immediately felt at home in Houston. She spent the next 24 years working for the University of Texas as an educator and retired as the head administrator at the UT Child Development Center in the TMC. Tosh would continue her passion for education by working in the administration at St. Vincent de Paul Catholic School from 2009 until finally retiring for good in 2015.
A doting mother and loyal friend, Tosh was full of charm, wit, and a fun-loving spirit. She embraced everybody with love, kindness, and sincerity. She was fiercely independent and never lost her unwavering faith in God. Tosh battled lupus and cancer since 2000, but never gave up or allowed herself to be defined by these challenges. She persevered and succeeded in her mission to provide the best possible life for her two sons, who were her pride and joy. Tosh was a social butterfly who loved to share her passion for cooking with everyone around her, and she always went out of her way to help others whenever she could.
Tosh is survived by her devoted sons, Ricky and Julian; her sister, Sharda and husband Jasbir; brother, Rajinder and wife Ann; brother, Rabinder; niece and nephews, Sonia, Roshan, and Akash; and many loving friends.
