Sophronia “Toni” Bennett was born to Leo & Barbara Burke on September 9, 1952 in Lansing, Michigan and went to rest with God on November 20, 2020. Toni was raised in a huge, loving family including 8 siblings: Tom Burke (Mary Burke), Robert (Bobby) Burke, Frankie Burke, Roddy Burke, Michael Burke, Cheryl Alvarado, Marie Wallace, and Anna Garcia (Don Garcia).
Toni was happily married to Larry Bennett for 25 years and together they were blessed with five boys: Keith Shirey Jr. (Sarah Shirey),Roddy Shirey Sr. (Bridgette Shirey), Larry Bennett Jr. (Sherry Bennett),Tommy Bennett (Kendra Bennett), and Scott Campbell. She was also a wonderful grandmother to James Bennett, Shaunee Williams (Rj Williams), Keith Shirey III, Roddy Shirey Jr, Hailey Kollin (Jay Kollin), Kaitlynne Shirey, Danielle Shirey, Megan Bennett, and Morgan Bennett; and two great grandsons: Jordan Shirey & Blake Bennett.
Toni was preceded in death by her mother, father, 3 brothers, and 2 sisters.
Toni loved to spend time with her family, writing the best cards with an entire paragraph on how much she loved you. Bingo was her passion, she was always down for a trip to the casino or to scratch cash words in her free time and she made sure to never miss her soap operas! She will be missed by many and always remembered by everyone who loved her.
