Judith Karen TOTH

Judith Karen Toth

June 3rd 1955 to January 26th 2017


It is with great regret I announce that Judith passed away on January 27th after a valiant one year battle with cancer. With her tenacious efforts and strong will we were confident that she would succeed, but the disease thought otherwise.

Judith was born in England and attended St. Martha’s boarding school in Hertfordshire and when the family emigrated to Canada she boarded at St. Mildred’s school in Oakville, Ontario where she pursued, her interest in drama and took the lead role of Maria in the Sound of Music at a major Toronto theatre.

Judith had a full life, studying English and drama at  York University, a degree in fashion design, and controlling a family owned multimillion dollar construction business in Alberta.

She had a passionate  interest in gardening with an emphasis on orchids and nursed many of her friends’ neglected orchid plants back to full strength and flower. This was coupled with her enthusiasm and skills cooking unique and unusual foods to satisfy her eclectic palate. Her artistic ability was impressive but she withdrew when the considerable skills of her two daughters became apparent.

She leaves two daughters Angela and Danielle both of whom have inherited their mother’s artistic, nurturing and responsible characteristics.

Our deepest thanks to Dr. Butcher and Dr. Beaver for their support and understanding during these times.  

This is  also  the time to acknowledge how fortunate we are to live on Saltspring Island and to have such a wonderful hospital staffed with such exceptional people. In the last days of Judith’s life the support and caring of these wonderful people helped to cushion the loss for her family.

She will be truly missed by her mother and daughters but her spirit will be with us always.
