Married her first love, Daniel Andrew Vigil, July 22, 1978 at Good Shepherd Catholic Church in East Carbon. They were blessed with two incredible children, a son, Easton Daniel, and daughter, Hailee Jill. In her words "the greatest gift of my life."
Toni had amazing talents and creativity that showed in every aspect of her life, creating a beautiful home and garden sanctuary.
She worked hard all her life at various occupations and you could always count on her for anything.
She was always there when needed to comfort, coach and cheer us on through life's trails and accomplishments.
Toni loved and served her church in many capacities as well as serving the community as city councilwoman. She served as chairman of beautification and was passionate about beautifying Sunnyside city.
Toni also enjoyed interior design, crafting, reading, camping, and she was an awesome cook.
