She married Buddy Oldroyd in 1966; later divorced. They had two children, Wendi and Michael. She was remarried in March 1988 to Frankie Sacco. Toni spent many years as the lunch manager at Petersen Elementary. She also enjoyed her time spent employed by family at Miner’s Trading Post.
Toni was a member of The Good Shepherd Catholic Church in East Carbon, Utah. Some of her fondest memories were bowling with friends on the Sunnyside Bowling League. She enjoyed her walks on the trail with her closest friends, reading, and coffee on her porch. Toni’s whole world was centered around her family. She was sweet, selfless, but oh so stubborn.

She is preceded in death by her parents; grandparents; aunts and uncles; and special nephew, Anthony O’Nash.

The family would especially like to thank South Jordan Huntsman Cancer Clinic, Huntsman Cancer Institute, Dr. Glenn Etzel, Dr. John Weiss and staff, Mitchell Funeral Home, and CNS Home Health & Hospice, especially Lauren, Amy, Jamie and Jeannie who lovingly took care of Toni in her final months.
