Antionette "Toni" Bumpilori Antionette “Toni” Bumpilori, born April 18, 1952, went home to be with her parents in heaven on April 12th, 2017. Toni loved her cats Sneaky Pete and Peanut, and this is how she spent most of her day “with her babies”. Toni loved to listen to music from her younger years and watch reality TV shows; her favorites were “Hoarders” and “Extreme Weight Loss”. Although Toni was rough around the edges she had a kind heart and always worried about the people in her apartment complex more than she worried about herself.

Toni will be missed by her cats, her best friend Mike and her friends Marvin and Kevin. She will always be remembered and dearly missed by her SCL worker Penny, as well as all of the Premier Payee staff and clients.

Toni leaves behind a son Marty Downing, a daughter Holly Downing and her grandson Antonio Downing as well as many other relatives and friends.
