Naturally gifted and passionate, Toni was a skilled artist and amazing singer. Her vibrant personality, keen wit and infectious smile made her a favorite among family, friends, and in the communities where she volunteered. She also enjoyed traveling, cultures and cuisine, both locally and abroad, which she wrote about in her column Duxbury News.
Preceded in death by her adopted parents Eunice and Ethel Wickhem, Toni joins her birth mother and several siblings. Survived by husband, Glenford H.; daughter, Twanika (Jamison); son, Glenford H. Jr.; and six grandchildren. Remembered for her laughter and grace, her presence is dearly missed.
