Born on Aug. 13, 1940, in Stockton, California, she was a daughter of Gary and Dorothy (Grant) Sinclair. While growing up, her family lived in Atlanta, Georgia; Buffalo, New York; and Redwood City, California. She received her bachelor’s degree in English literature from the University of California at Berkley and her master’s degree in library science from San Jose State University. Toni loved literature, as she always worked in a library, from her first job as the librarian in middle school to the high school setting. Upon moving to Glidden she became the Glidden Public Library librarian and retired from that position. Toni also loved her cats and dogs. She was an avid flower and vegetable gardener.

Toni is survived by her sister Gail Sinclair of Murphys, California; niece Jennifer Lombardi and nephew Scott Marx, both of San Francisco.

Toni was preceded in death by her parents, Dorothy and Gary Sinclair.
