Toni Cubillas Woods
November 9, 1940- October 25, 2019
Toni Cubillas Woods died October 25, 2019 at Glenaire Retirement Community in Cary, N.C. She was 78 years old.
Born in Miami, she attended Coral Gables Senior High School and Stetson University. While there, she joined Alpha Xi Delta Sorority, leaving Stetson to help found a chapter of that sorority at the University of Georgia. She graduated from UGA with a BS in bacteriology. Toni later went to Georgia State University, obtaining a Master’s degree in Biology. She worked for the Centers for Disease Control for almost 20 years before retiring. In retirement, she lived 15 years in the Big Canoe community.
An avid reader and painter, she maintained contact with friends from work, sorority, and various charitable and hobby groups. She loved traveling, with friends or by herself in America, the Caribbean, Europe and Africa. The trips gave her a new perspective and rich memories.
She is survived by her sister, Susan Grayson of Cary and two children: James Michael Woods and Anne Evans Amadou; five grandchildren Alexander Patrick Woods, Sean Noel Woods, Madeline Michelle Woods, Zakari Antonio Amadou and Isaiah James Amadou.
