Our precious granddaughter, daughter, sister, tia and friend passed away during her sleep of natural causes on March 20, 2021. Toni was predeceased by her grandmother, Shirley Smith (Iowa); grandfathers, Carl Smith (Montana), Peter DelPizzo, Sr. (Pennsylvania); and a sister-in-law, Autumn Haack of Laurel.

Toni was born in Sarasota, Florida on December 12, 1985 and grew up in Laurel Montana. She graduated Salutatorian from Laurel High School and Cum Laude from Montana State University-Billings. She was currently general manager of the Grand Avenue Pizza Hit in Billings Montana. She was a private investigator under the tutelage of Michael Toth and an assistant with the Su Casa Property Management team.

Toni was one of Jehovah’s Witnesses, having been baptized on May 23, 2005. Her faith being the pinnacle of a life of service to Jehovah, her community and all who knew her.

Toni’s career of service to others began during her college years when she started as a volunteer at the Gateway House. She held positions as manager and sexual assault advocate. Toni remained an advocate for those who were most vulnerable to domestic violence and abuse.

No matter her position in life, Toni reached out to those in need, believing in second and third chances, believing in sixth and seventh chances, whatever was necessary for those around her to overcome the struggles, to succeed in their everyday endeavors. Toni was a true humanitarian whose care and love was unconditional.

Toni was deeply devoted to her family and friends, always ready for the next adventure in life—whether that be a road trip across the states, a Buc’s game in Florida, a rendezvous in NYC or exploring ancient castles throughout the UK.

Toni was an avid Tampa Bay Buccaneers fan and thrilled when Tom Brady joined their ranks. She was planning a trip with her family later this year to catch a Buc’s game and cheer on the GOAT! We know she will be there with us in spirit—Go Bucs!

Toni is survived by her parents, Peter DelPizzo Jr. (Tam Tam) and Pattye Haack (LeRoy); grandparents, Ken and Maryann Rometo; her loving sister and confidante, Nicole (Liliana and Juliana); step-sisters, Kacie Jo and Nikki; brothers, Jeffrey and “Big Jon”; step-brothers, Brandon and Chad (Kirra, Chet, Kylla, Patrick); and her beloved cat, Caymin.

We were not finished Sweet Girl, but God’s master plan took another direction, thus the candle burns a little dimmer. Rest in peace sweetest pearl, our Puddy Angel. You are forever in our hearts.

Services will be held at Laurel United Methodist Church, Saturday, April 3, 2021, at 11 a.m. Please practice COVID-19 safety precautions. Internment to follow at a later date.
