A funeral for Antwine was held in her hometown of Tupelo, Mississippi on July 31. She died of complications from deep vein thrombosis, the school system said in a news release.

Antwine was elected to represent District 1 on the Board of Education in 2018. She and three others were the first board members to be elected, rather than appointed, to their seats.
