I was scrolling through Facebook this morning to see a post about Toshi-Aline Ohta Seeger, wife of folk legend Pete Seeger, passed. I suddenly became even more deeply saddened. I do not know Pete or Toshi. But I have been a huge follower of Pete’s career for many years.
She was a mother, an organizer, an activist and filmmaker. Toshi was born in Munich, Germany, to an American mother and a Japanese father. Her parents came to the U.S. when she was 6 months of age.
Pete & Toshi had a strong relationship through the years. Her taking care of the home & children as Pete traveled the world making music. My deepest thoughts and prayers go out to Pete Seeger and the rest of the Seeger family.
RIP Toshi-Aline Ohta Seeger
