Toni was a member of Underwood Baptist Church. She loved the Lord and loved her church. Toni attended Wilson School where she was a proud member of the band. Toni loved doing volunteer work especially at Merrill Gardens. She had a passion for giving and loved to make jewelry for family and friends and even complete strangers. But most of all she loved her family and family get togethers especially her “all girls” Christmas parties. Toni had a sometimes-challenging life but never met a stranger and always had a smile for everyone.
Toni will be sorely missed by all.
Honorary pallbearers will be Matt Terrell, Ethan Holt, Michael Hollingshaus, Terry Cockburn, Ricky South, and Ricky Curtis.
