Edic Antonia Goff

June 23, 1959 — March 28, 2024

EDIC ANTONIA GOFF (TOÑITA) IS THE MOST LOVING WIFE, MOTHER, GRANDMOTHER, DAUGHTER, SISTER, AUNT, AND FRIEND. BORN ON 23 JUNE 1959 IN IQUITOS, PERU, HER MOTHER AT AN EARLY AGE TAUGHT HER THE IMPORTANCE OF FAITH, FAMILY, COMMITMENT, PERSEVERANCE, OBEDIENCE, AND HARD WORK. HER DAILY LIFE EXEMPLIFIED THESE ATTRIBUTES TO ANYONE THAT HAD THE PLEASURE AND HONOR OF KNOWING AND LOVING HER.


THE SIXTH OF SIX SIBLINGS, AS A CHILD, TOÑITA ALWAYS STOOD BY HER MOTHER’S SIDE. HER MOTHER TAUGHT HER THE IMPORTANCE OF LIVING A LIFE CEMENTED IN FAITH. GROWING UP IN HUMBLE WAYS, HER MOM AND SISTERS MOVED AROUND THROUGH DIFFERENT PERUVIAN PROVINCES IN SEARCH FOR BETTER FINANCIAL OPPORTUNITIES. THAT DIDN’T STOP TOÑITA FROM ENJOYING HER CHILDHOOD. TOÑITA LOVED TO RUN EVERYWHERE, SWIM IN THE RIVER, CLIMB TREES, AND PLAY WITH HER SISTER, CHOQUITO.


AS A YOUNG ADULT SHE WAS EAGER TO LEARN AND COMMITTED TO ACHIEVING HER GOALS. TOÑITA ATTENDED A PERUVIAN MILITARY HIGH SCHOOL WHERE SHE WAS THE VALEDICTORIAN OF HER GRADUATING CLASS. THAT AWARD EARNED HER A FULL SCHOLARSHIP TO STUDY A BACHELOR’S IN ACCOUNTING AT ONE OF PERU’S TOP PUBLIC UNIVERSITIES, FEDERICO VILLAREAL.


DURING HER TIME IN COLLEGE, TOÑITA MET HER EX-HUSBAND WHO SHE SHARES TWO CHILDREN WITH, HASEL AND HUGO BUSTAMANTE. HER EX-HUSBAND WAS IN THE PERUVIAN MILITARY. EVEN THOUGH TOÑITA INITIALLY PURSUED HER CAREER GOALS BY WORKING AS AN ACCOUNTANT, SHE QUICKLY HAD TO PUT IT ASIDE TO SUPPORT HER HUSBAND’S MILITARY CAREER AND THE RAISING OF HER TWO YOUNG CHILDREN.

SOON AFTER HER DIVORCE, IN SEARCH OF A BETTER FUTURE FOR HER TWO CHILDREN, TOÑITA IMMIGRATED TO THE UNITED STATES. SETTLING IN SUNRISE, FLORIDA, SHE FOUND ANY POSSIBLE WAY TO ASSIMILATE TO HER NEW LIFE WHILE BEST RAISING HER TWO CHILDREN. TOÑITA ALSO MET BILLY, HER TRUE LOVE AND CURRENT HUSBAND. TOÑITA LOVES BILL AND BILL CENTERED HIS LIFE AROUND TOÑITA. THEY ARE MARRIED FOR 24 YEARS. DURING THOSE 24 WONDERFUL YEARS THEY TRAVELED THE WORLD THROUGH MULTIPLE CRUISES AND FLIGHTS, VISITING VARIOUS COUNTRIES IN NORTH AND SOUTH AMERICA, EUROPE, ASIA, AND AUSTRALIA.


TOÑITA NEVER SEARCHED FOR WORLDLY TITLES, RATHER SHE ALWAYS FOCUSED ON KEEPING HER IMMEDIATE AND EXTENDED FAMILY TOGETHER, IN PEACE WITH ONE ANOTHER, HOW GOD WOULD LIKE US TO LIVE. TOÑITA RAISED TWO CHILDREN AND HAS THREE GRANDCHILDREN: MATTEO (5 YO), SOFIA (3 YO), AND ANTONIO (6 MOS). WATCHING TOÑITA BE A GRANDMOTHER WAS A DELIGHT TO HER CHILDREN AND HER GRANDCHILDREN WILL ALWAYS KNOW THE IMMENSE LOVE SHE HAS FOR THEM. HER LIFE WILL LIVE IN GENERATIONS TO COME. EVEN THOUGH SHE IS NO LONGER PHYSICALLY WITH US, SHE WILL ALWAYS BE PRESENT IN OUR HEARTS, MINDS, AND ACTIONS. SHE LED A LIFE FULL OF FAITH, JOY, UNDERSTANDING, AND FORGIVENESS. TOÑITA LED BY EXAMPLE SO THAT THROUGH HER ACTIONS WE MAY KNOW THE LOVE OF CHRIST AND KNOW HOW IT IS TO LIVE A LIFE CEMENTED IN HIS LOVE.



“MAY EVERYTHING HAPPEN ACCORDING TO THE WILL OF THE LORD.”
