THE funeral of a popular young mother from Taunton who died suddenly will be held this week.

Toni Harris, 21, of Snedden Grove, was training to become a physiotherapist at Somerset College but died in hospital after she collapsed suddenly at home earlier this month.

She left behind five-year-old son Thomas, eight-month-old daughter Millie, mum Kelly, dad Steven and brother Sebastian.

Her funeral will be held at St Mary Magdalene Church in Taunton on Friday (April 4) at 2pm, followed by a private cremation.

Flowers or donations in Toni’s memory should go to epilepsy awareness and can be sent to Magdalene Funeral Services, 10 Magdalene Lane, Taunton TA1 1SE.

As reported in the County Gazette, Toni was training to become a physiotherapist and her mum Kelly Toon described her as a wonderful, bubbly, caring and very bright girl.

Toni studied at Richard Huish College and Somerset College and was a keen rugby player, representing the Taunton Fillies.
