ANDREA MARIA JUNE TOTH

Born In: Prince Rupert, British Columbia, Canada
Born: January 18th, 1973

Passed in: Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
Passed on: July 14th, 2013

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Andrea in Newcastle upon Tyne, England where she studied, lived and worked as a professional artist and an educator at Newcastle University. Metastatic Breast Cancer took her too quickly; however, she passed away peacefully with her mother, cousins and friends by her side.

Andrea was born in Prince Rupert, B.C. and moved with her family to Kamloops at the age of 6 weeks. She completed her high school education at Kamloops Senior Secondary in 1991 when she was awarded scholarships for her excellence in art. She was always very involved in music, both at school with band, choir, accompaniment and competitions, and privately as well, winning many awards. Life guarding, teaching swimming & CGIT were some of the other activities that kept her busy. She attended the University of Calgary and in 1995 obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting and drawing. She travelled to Europe and the UK with friends, and later moved to Vernon to be with her family. Andrea attended the University of BC where she graduated with a Bachelor of Education in 1999. She was a substitute teacher, had her own Andrea Toth Arts business for teaching art and making and printing art cards, and became the curator of the Vernon Art Gallery for two years.

Andrea then pursued her dream of furthering her art education and was awarded her Masters of Fine Art at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne in the UK in 2006. She lived and worked in Newcastle for nine years where she excelled with her beautiful landscape paintings. She also taught in first year Architecture as well as classes in Life Drawing in the Fine Art department of Newcastle University.

Andrea leaves to mourn her passing her parents Geza and Diane (Osborn) Toth of Vernon, and her sister Georgina (Gord) Chipman and their three children Stephen, Katie and Matthew of Williams Lake. She will be sadly missed also by numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and many special friends in Canada, England and Hungary.

She was predeceased by her grandparents "CD" Bill & June Osborn of Coldstream and Gyula and Maria Toth of Hungary.

A Memorial Service to Celebrate Andrea's life will be held at All Saints' Anglican Church, 3205 - 27th Street, Vernon (parking behind the Church) on Saturday, August 24th, 2013 at 2:00 p.m.
