Toni loved life, especially God’s creations with birds and cats being at the top of her list. She loved helping with church activities and going to sporting events, especially March Madness basketball. The staff at Deerfield also said Toni touched many lives and affected everyone she came in contact with. They will also miss her whistling in the halls and her lively step. Although Toni will be spending Christmas with Jesus this year, she will be missed by all and never forgotten.
