Obituary: Boivin, Antoinette ‘Toni’

It is with a sad heart that we announce that Antoinette ‘Toni’ Boivin passed peacefully in her 85th year with family and friends by her side after a fall and a short stay in hospital.

Toni loved her life in Meaford, her friends and family, and her adored Collie Abby. Her many activities with friends included bowling, get togethers for shared meals, playing cards and doing puzzles. She travelled extensively with her dear friends Anita, Kevin, and Jack, and saw so much of the world. Meeting friends in Orillia, and making the trip to a nearby casino was always a special treat. Gardening and cooking were two of Toni’s passions which she enjoyed greatly upon her retirement to Meaford 21 years ago. Toni was a kind, loving, and selfless mother.

Toni is survived by her son Christopher, his wife Mary Pat, and their three children Madison, Connor, and Rowen. She was predeceased by her brother, Peter Mattiasso. Toni will be missed too by her dear sister-in-law Helen, and her two nephews Michael and Peter.

A special heartfelt thank you goes to the doctors and nurses at the Meaford Hospital for the exceptional care given to Toni.

At Toni’s request, there will be no service, and cremation has already occurred. Her ashes will be scattered at a later date.

As your expression of sympathy, donations to the Grey Bruce Animal Shelter or the Meaford Hospital Foundation would be appreciated and may be made through the Ferguson Funeral Home, 48 Boucher St. E., Meaford, ON, N4L 1B9, to whom arrangements have been entrusted. www.fergusonfuneralhomes.ca
