It is with a sad heart that we announce that Antoinette ‘Toni’ Boivin passed away 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 Rough Collie Abby. Her many activities with friends included bowling, get-togethers for shared meals, playing cards and completing puzzles of all kinds. She travelled extensively with her dear friends Anita, Kevin and Jack, and saw so much of the world. Meeting friends in Orillia, and then making the trip to a nearby casino was always a special treat. Gardening and cooking were two more of Toni’s passions, and following her retirement to Meaford 21 years ago, she was able to fully enjoy these hobbies. Toni will be remembered by her son Chris as a kind, loving and selfless mother.
Toni is survived by her son Christopher, his wife Mary Pat, and their three children, Madison, Connor and Rowan. She was predeceased by her brother, Peter Mattiasso. She will be greatly missed by her dear sister-in-law Helen, and her two nephews Michael and Peter.
A special and heartfelt thank you goes out to the doctors and nurses at the Meaford Hospital for the exceptional care given to Toni.
At her request, there will be no formal visitation or service. Toni’s ashes will be scattered at her place of choice at a later date.
