Tonette Machelle (Singleton) Thompson, affectionately known as Toni, was born on December 19, 1962, to Freddie Marie Gaston Singleton and the late Richard Singleton of Beaver Falls, PA. She transitioned peacefully into the arms of Jesus Christ on November 22, 2021, at her home with her mother Freddie and sister Janette by her side.

She returned home and worked at Temporary jobs until hired by Westinghouse Electric located in Green Tree, PA.

Toni’s love for the Lord and the Church started at the tender age of four. One Sunday, Pastor John Davis was giving out “pray hours” for the noonday pray time, and when he finished, Toni stood up and said most politely, “ You didn’t give me one” he smiled down at her and replied, “ You can pray with your mother, on her hour!” She clapped her tiny little hands together, smiled, and said, “Thank you.” Every day thereafter, at 10 o’clock, she would say, “It’s time to pray, Mommie, and she did this until she started school.
In addition to going to church, Toni also enjoyed sports (especially football), movies, theater, slots at the casino, concerts, shopping, eating out with family, and just being with her children.
