Toni Anita Miles affectionately known as “Lil Toni” was born on May 19, 1977, to Belinda Baker and Anthony Gonzales. She transitioned from this life to her heavenly home on March 31, 2023.
Toni enjoyed the solitude of self but still enjoyed spending time with those whom she held close to her heart. In anticipation of her arrival, everyone would always ask where’s Lil Toni because she could show up to any social gathering and change the entire dynamic. She truly was the life of the party.
Toni enjoyed shopping and had a unique sense of fashion. From her clothes and her shoes to her piercings and her tattoos. She was simply beautiful.
If Toni could she would tell us now don’t be afraid to cry. It will free your mind from sorrowful thoughts. You can shed tears because I’m gone or you can smile because I lived.
Left to cherish her memory are her mother Belinda Baker. Stepfather Edmond Baker. Sister LaTanya Miles. Her only daughter Alia Gooden. Sons, Benny Miles; DeVonte Gooden; DeOnte Gooden; and DeAnthony Gooden. Nephews Ronald Miles and Anthony Jackson and great-nephews Levi and Grayson Miles. She also leaves a host of aunts, uncles, and cousins.
She was preceded in death by her father Anthony Gonzales. Maternal grandmother Odessa Miles Oldham and paternal grandparents Bennie and Joe Gonzales.
From Alia to Toni:
I’ll spend my lifetime sending paper airplanes to the moon praying they get to you.
