Toni was an exceptional person. You never doubted where she stood and she never hesitated to tell “you’re being a freaking idiot‼️” She drug me to EHC saying “It’s an 1.5 hours a month‼️🤣”. She drug me into Red Hats. She pushed me out of my “comfort zone “ I will always be forever grateful for everything she did for me. RIP my Queen I love you

Tony was a dedicated member of The Arkansas Extension Homemakers and served in many leadership roles on the county level, which included President of the Crawford County Council. She could be depended on to liven up the meetings with her fun loving nature. Her help was valued at the Arkansas Oklahoma State Fair where she volunteered as a Food Preservation superintendent every fall, as well. She will be greatly missed!
