Toni Kay Chessher Moffitt was born August 21, 1948 and passed away on March 20, 2018 in College Station, Texas.
Toni was born in Houston to Oran Tennyson Chessher and Edith Grace Spencer. She graduated from North Shore High School in 1966 and loved keeping up with her classmates. Toni married her husband, Dr. James D. Moffitt, on June 30, 1979 in Houston. She was a devoted wife and loving mother, who raised her children in picturesque Traverse City, Michigan before moving the family back to Texas, where she assisted her husband’s dental practice in Bryan for many years.
She was a lifelong reader who loved a good mystery or a saucy romance, and her natural curiosity led her to explore everything from history to astrology. She loved crafting and especially holiday decorating – so much so that she even ran her own Christmas store, The Reindeer Station. She was also an accomplished seamstress, sewing everything from quilts to her daughter’s wedding dress. She was a wonderful cook, too, famous for her Christmas Eve fondue, deviled eggs and holiday Chex Mix, which she dutifully sent to her son during his tours of Iraq and Afghanistan.
She loved traveling with her family in her final years, seeing everything from the redwoods of California to the beaches of Hawaii – though nothing brought her more joy than the arrival of her young grandchildren.
Toni is survived by her husband, Dr. James (Jim) D. Moffitt; son, James (J.D) Moffitt, Jr., his wife Alyssa and their daughter, Tennyson – all of Georgetown; daughter, Lindsey Bailey, her husband Noah and their two children, Juniper and Riggins – all of Dallas; and sister, Teresa Rouse, her husband Theo and their daughters, Kristin Schuppert and Lauren Rouse, of College Station.
