Shoniker, Terri

November 1962 - October 2023
It is with profound sadness that we share that our precious and beloved wife, mother and daughter, Terri Shoniker, passed away on Friday, October 27th. Predeceased by her beloved father William Bill Scott, Terri is survived by her family, who made up the entirety of her world, including her husband Mark, her mother Cora, her sons William and Mark Jr., her daughter-in-law Winkae and the balance of her extended family. Terri’s love for children, and all creatures great and small (especially her cats), was her joy and her passion. Never an animal in distress that didn’t need saving, never a dog being walked that didn’t need patting. When the boys were younger, she assumed the role of mother for what seemed like the entire neighborhood, the home was always warm and welcoming to all of the friends of William and Mark who made it their second-home. Her true kindness shone through all things. She shared that joy and love throughout her years working with children while at the Toronto School Board. Not surprisingly, she spent the last half of her career working with developmentally challenged young students, helping them through their special circumstances. After a successful and rewarding career, she left her position to devote her time and passion to her children and family. Terri never strove to be the center of attention, but she was always the center of our family and its strength.
Friends and family are invited to join us in a celebration of Terris life on Saturday, November 4, 2023 at the Accettone Funeral Home located at 384 Finley Ave, Ajax,ON L1S 2E3. Visitation to start at 10:00am. Service at 11:00am, followed by a reception at the Funeral Home.
In lieu of flowers, Terri would have preferred that any donations be made to the Humane Society of Durham Region.
Interment at Christ the King Cemetery at 7770 Steeles Ave. East, Markham, ON L6B 1A8 to follow at approximately 2:00pm.
