Mrs. Antonia Silcox died peacefully and without suffering on Friday, June 30th at Amica Erin Mills, in the company of her loving son and daughter, Mark and Mary. Toni Silcox was born in 1939 in Blackheath, UK and emigrated with her family to eastern Ontario in 1951. She received a BA from Queen's University and taught high school English until 1968.

She will be deeply missed by her children, her many friends, her brother Timothy Stephens, and her caregiver Carol Edison. A memorial service will be held at A Simple Alternative Funeral Centre (1535 South Gateway Road, Mississauga) on Monday, July 10th at 2PM.
