It is with great sadness that the North Colonie Central School District extends its condolences to family and friends of Toni Lyng, a long-time English teacher at Shaker Junior High School. Mrs. Lyng passed away after a long illness. A celebration of life service will be held on Saturday, Feb. 20 at 2:00 p.m. at Faith Baptist Church, located at 11 Glenridge Rd. in Rexford. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the South High Marathon Dance, in memory of Toni Lyng (42 Merrill Rd., South Glens Falls, NY 12803). Also, there has also been a trust set up for Mrs. Lyng’s son, Ethan. The money will be used to pay for his schooling when he graduates from high school. To give to Ethan’s 529, click here.

Mrs. Lyng will be greatly missed in our school community, by both the students and teachers whose lives she touched throughout the years. “What a teacher writes on the blackboard of life can never be erased.” -Author Unknown
