Toni was born February 11, 1955, daughter to Thomas and Audrey (Finny) Hiatt. She grew up in Rock Island, Illinois, and moved to Cedar Rapids in 1979, with her daughters. Toni loved visiting, sharing memories, and hanging out with family and her many friends.

Toni was funny, and witty and loved to laugh. She enjoyed cooking out and playing cards, especially Skip-Bo. She also loved to kick back and watch TV and was a lifelong fan of The Young and the Restless. She always had to have her Pepsi and ice and would never turn down a taco.

Toni was a very proud mother and grandmother. Everyone knew “how wonderful her daughters are” and that she had the “best grandkids.” She loved her family and friends very much. She also loved God and shared her beliefs.

She is survived by her daughters, Stacie Reed and Stephanie Hotz; grandchildren, Haylie (Justin), Andrew, Preston, Maddison, Alexia, and Gavin; siblings, Susan (Paul), Terry, Tracy (Dave), and Tim; and numerous nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her mother, Audrey, and siblings, Tommy, Joan, Colleen, and Mickie.
