It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Anna Toner, from brain cancer, at the age of 20. Anna is survived by her father Bruce, mother Louise, older sister Helen, grandparents Bob and Edith Beddie (Belleville), and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins. Predeceased by grandparents Bruce and Eleanor Toner.
Anna was a dedicated student of Environmental Engineering at the University of Western Ontario, which reflected her lifelong interest in nature and love of the outdoors. She loved the arts as well, as a dancer for 13 years, circus artist, and violinist. Anna enjoyed sports, including gymnastics and soccer, and loved to go on adventures travelling with family. She was an optimistic and dedicated fan of the Toronto Maple Leafs and Toronto Argonauts. Anna was a hardworking, sweet, kind girl, and will be sorely missed by her family and friends.
