Passed peacefully on Wednesday, June 24, 2020 at age 65, surrounded by her family and her beautiful flowers. Toni was the most enthusiastic person you would ever meet. Even with her metastatic breast cancer diagnosis, her jubilation and cheerfulness were awe inspiring for all those she came in contact with. Her vivacious personality and deep love for her friends and family make it a truly painful loss for her beloved husband of 39 years Paul Schurter, her three precious children Anthony, Lisa (Matthew), and Vanessa (Vince), her sisters Josephine (Jim) Walters, Mary Ann (Sergio) Borghesi, brother David Carbone, sister-in-law Jane Shelegy, nieces and nephews, her many very dear friends, and extended family in Italy. As a dedicated French Teacher for 38 years, Madame brought incredible passion and chuckles every day to her students at R.L. Hyslop School. As a steadfast Catholic and always stunningly stylish, she will no doubt be dancing it up in a beautiful outfit with sparkling bling, with her parents Antonio and Rosa Carbone and in-laws Michael and Sophia Schurter in heaven. Forever our #1 cheerleader and fashionista, Toni is truly loved and adored and will be missed beyond measure. We would like to thank the Juravinski team, her doctors and nurses throughout this journey.

Madame was an awesome teacher, greatly loved by all her students. We were saddened to hear of her passing. My children always enjoyed her teaching and learned more from her than any other teacher. Her energy and passion we're legendary

Bonjour Madame,

My condolences to your family. You were a wonderful person and our time in the classroom is some of my fondest memories from my elementary school days. You were so supportive of me when I was sick and even after I graduated from R.L. any time I saw you afterwards you would greet me with a smile and genuine interest in my life after elementary school. You will be missed, thank you for being such an amazing teacher.

My condolences to the family. Tony is adored and missed. I worked with Tony at R. L. Hyslop, she would come into my JK class in her fabulous shoes and outfits and ask what can she do with the kids. Then shed do play dough and finger painting. The kids and I adored her. Love to you all. Olga Shustyk
