She was loved by everyone and will always be remembered for being such an incredibly loving, encouraging, thoughtful, positive, resilient and supportive mother, grandmother, wife, sister, friend and mother-in-law. She was her daughters’ hero and a tower of strength, grace and guidance. Her kindness was contagious, and she was the most giving and caring person to everyone. She was immensely loved by her three daughters and grandchildren, who were the center of her world. She was extremely devoted to her late husband Dr. Ahraya Tocharoen to whom she was married for 44 years. Their love together was immeasurable. Gridsana and Dr. Tocharoen came over from Thailand and built a life together raising their children in Beaufort.

Gridsana is also survived by her two sisters in South Carolina, Vranuch (Dr. Samai Supan) and Yupapak (Michael Routzong). Her other brothers and sisters reside in Thailand.
