  1. On Behalf of ARCS Orange County Chapter I would like to say we were so sad to hear of Toni’s death. We all have such fond memories of all she did for the Chapter over the past many years. We especially remember the beautiful flower centerpieces she often provided for our events. As a nurse, I also recognize the wonderful contributions she made to the nursing profession in Southern California and across the nation. She will be missed by all.
