She raised her children in Layton, Utah and upon retirement, spent time traveling with her husband, “Buddy”. Her friends knew her as “Toni”. She became Toni because of her feisty attitude. They named her Toni after “Tony the Tiger.” She was a loving and colorful person with a contagious laugh. She was known to her step-children as “Other Mother”.
