Thank you for your warm thoughts Everyone. We will miss our mother DEARLY. She was always and still is a shining star in our hearts. 💕❤️❤️❤️💕
The Trom and Kratz families spent much time together when we were growing up, due to the close relationship between my mom Shirley and Auntie Toni. My childhood memories are full of holidays and cookouts with Auntie Toni, Uncle Bud, and Saundra, Sally, and Mitch - I fondly consider these to have been the best of times!
I will always think of my aunt Tonia as fun, funny, creative, and very warm and kind.
Deepest condolences from my family to the Trom Family. We are so sorry that we cannot join you to celebrate Tonia's memory.
Uncle Jerry, Cousin Mike, and Jane, Sean, and Annie.
I will cherish Auntie Toni's laugh, her advice, and our phone calls. I miss her so much.
Air hugs for you all.
Deb and Bill
I graduated with Tonia from Owatonna High school, Class off 1954. We shared lots of good times, especially at all of our class reunions. The last one was Sept. 2018. We had such a great time visiting and remanising. My sympathy to you. She will truly be missed. Audrey Arndt
We will miss Tonia immensely. I was honored to be ring bearer at Tonia and Bud’s wedding. Growing up we always looked forward to playing with cousins Sandra, Sally and Mitch. In later years Karen and I would spend fun evenings out on the town in Rochester with Tonia and Bud.
Wade and I are so very sorry for the loss of your mother. She will be watching over you until you meet again. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.
Dear Trom family,
I am so sorry that Tony has left this physical earth but I pray that she is at peace in Heaven. I'll always remember the fun sleepovers at the "Windsor House" in childhood and how Tony was ready with a smile! What a kind lady she was and....like her middle name, she was a beautiful flower!!
God bless you all. May your Memories of her give you strength,
|Tonia you were the best! I am so blessed to have met you and will always have happy memories with you at family BBQ's, holiday get togethers and great fireside conversations. Thank you for sharing your stories and experiences. Love ya always!|
Our deepest sympathies for your families loss.
