Toots opened Toots’ Cake & Candy Supplies in 1974, and was the owner and operator there for 30 years. She was a member of St. George’s Episcopal Church, Belleville, IL. Through her numerous years of owning Toots’, she made many friends. All who knew her were drawn to her lively, warm personality and kind heart. The past several years were a battle that she always found a way to keep fighting. Her bravery was undeniable. Toots has left quite an impression on many, and will surely be missed.
