Condolence: Toni was a true champion for the aging population in this community and I know Senior Options hasn't been the same without her. But, I also miss her humor and that twinkle in her eye..that's when you knew something good was coming! We are all better for knowing her and she is truly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Condolence: I am so saddened by Toni's passing. Some of my fondest memories are pounding the pavement with Toni and others as we sought 60,000 signatures to get the first Senior levy in Franklin county on the ballot. Toni was not only dedicated, she always had her wit and humor to lighten any task. She stewarded senior services funds with passion and a steady hand. My heart goes out to you, Ron and all her family and friends.

Condolence: Toni's memory and legacy will continue to live on in those who continue to work at the Office on Aging. I feel it was an honor to have worked with her and feel she did amazing work for older adults in Franklin County. We were so lucky to have her and all she did for the program.

Condolence: The UTube Hill Funeral Home Memorial Service that I was able to view today was a beautiful tribute to Toni's life. She made a huge difference for so many. A life well lived. Isn't that what we all hope for? All the speakers delivered this message which she well deserved. She was a caring friend and a wonderful mentor for me professionally. She will be missed but never forgotten. How fortunate I have been to call her my friend.
My sympathy to all her family and loved ones.
Condolence From: Susan and Jerry Wolf/Collamore, Melbourne, FL
Condolence: Dearest Ron, We have tried to reach you but alas no correct number. You both still remain our closest Columbus Friends and our hearts break with the loss of Toni. I know she is on the other side starting to plan her next outreach to those in need, and she will be waiting for you to eventually show up with all of her art deco scotty dogs. We love you both very much, miss you and look forward to us all being together again. Love and peace, Susan and Jerry

Condolence: The world is a little poorer with Toni's passing. She was instrumental in helping me to understand county government and a leader in equity before equity was even on most folks' radar. Godspeed, m'lady.

Condolence: Ron, I am so sorry to learn of Toni's death. She was such an inspiration to many of us.
Condolence From: Jason Osborne, Oakland Park, FL
Condolence: Toni Carroll was such an incredible inspiration to me over the 10 years that I worked with her. From her dedication to Franklin County seniors, her passion for helping others especially the vulnerable adults that FCOA served and to making sure work was a place where you felt comfortable sharing your thoughts/feelings. Her laugh was incredible and when she started to laugh you couldnt help but laugh as well. I have so many memories of Toni.I remember I used to joke with her that she drove the same Toyota car that had a dent in it for years and if she was ever going to get it fixed. I remember her charity work and the way she constantly was thinking of new programs she could start to help anyone in need. Toni was a true treasure. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.
Condolence From: Brenda Spradling, Delaware, Ohio
Condolence: Toni was a champion for seniors in Central Ohio, especially Franklin County. She served older adults so well. She changed lives and left big shoes to fill. Many of us who knew her professionally admired her personally and for her public service. My sympathies to her family. May she rest in peace. Well done, Toni.
Condolence From: Richard and Yvonne Teeters, London, OH
Condolence: To Ron Botts
Ron: Yvonne and I were very sorry to hear that Antonia had left on an early flight to Heaven. We cannot know your pain and feeling of loss, but please accept our heartfelt sympathy.
You are at the top of our list of Pastors we really attuned to; and in our eighties, that says a lot.
If we can help in any way, just call.
Love, Richard and Yvonne Teeters

Condolence: I am so saddened to learn about Toni's death and hate that she battled this awful disease for so long. She gave Franklin County older adults and their families so much over the many years of her career. I send my regards to her family and to her dear friend, Michelle Henry.
