Mrs. Toldson, I worked at the center for you and Dr. Toldson as your Assistant in early 1990's. I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Dr. Toldson. Both of you were such nice employers. You and your family have my deepest sympathy.
Dr. Ivory Toldson was one of my favorite professors while attending Southern University. I was enrolled in his psychology class in 1975. He was scholarly, gentlemanly, and student-centered. He inspired me to pursue and secure the doctorate at Texas A&M. His legacy will live on through his loving family and the many students whose lives he touched. I keep his 'Roots of Soul' on the top shelf in my Home Library. Moreover, I look forward to reacquaintance with him in the glorious resurrection.
I WISH TO THANK GOD FOR SENDING ONE OF HIS ANGELS HERE TO HELP OTHERS COME TOGETHER AS ONE IN A FAMILY UNIT, WE WILL MISS YOU VERY MUCH DR. TOLDSON. MUCH LOVE TO THE FAMILY. MAY THE LORD JESUS BLESS ALL OF YOU THROUGH THIS SADDEN TIME. WE THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR HELP DR. T., MUCH LOVE VELMA TREECE & FAMILY.
Mrs. Toldson you have my deepest sympathty. It was certainly a joy to work with you and your husband during my years with The Office of Community Services. He will truly be missed.
To Mrs. Frances Toldson and Family:
I met DR. Toldson as a student. It was the first 1X per week class I ever had and it was on Wednesday nights for 3 hours AND I was pledging! What I learned helped me with the children I've worked with for the last 36 years. It was in that class that I drew something for a presentation and Dr. Toldson remembered that and had me do some art work for a presentation for his class. Fast forward some 20 years later he asked me to illustrate one of his books-- STOLEN INNOCENSE. That was hard but fun and he gave me leeway to draw the characters the way I wanted. So it is no accident that the doctor in the book resembles him quite a bit.
I will remember him as a man of proud heritage, an intelligent person and a kind heart. Though his voice boomed, I did not hear it raised but I heard his words reason. My dad, who was his coworker at SU, held him in high regard as well.
I pray that you all find comfort in God's promises--that where he is is home where there is no more sickness and we will gather together again and say good bye never again.
God bless you!

It is with a heavy heart I write these words. Dr. Toldson was the best professor I had while earning my degree in counseling. He was always professional and to the point.

Frances, I was dismayed when I read this obituary. Especially based on the conversation we had last week. Please accept our expression of regret for this loss.
A dear friend whom I loved very much. I will surely miss him.
Sending my condolences out to you, Mrs. Toldson and Kilah. May the Lord continue to comfort you all. It was a pleasure having known him.
Dr. Toldson was one of my professors in college. He was an outstanding man and provided me the opportunity to work with him as an intern when I was obtaining my Counseling Degree. He will be missed. May God's comforting peace be with you and his children.
It is with profound sorrow that I write you this message. Dr Toldson was both a mentor and friend when I attended grad school in Philadelphia in 1973. Under his tutelage, he created strong Black leaders able to continue successfully in our struggle for economic parity and independence as a race. My husband, Dr. Martin Ryder had the distinct pleasure of returning that blessing to Ivory Jr when he attended school in Philadelphia. Please be assured that God is with you and your family during your time of bereavement and that He will continue to bless and keep you.

Ms. France's & Ivan:
The one word that comes to mind when we think about the Toldson family is KINDNESS!! Days, Months, & sometime Years would pass between our speaking to each other... but those meetings would always be just as though time stood still. We are deeply sadden at the going home of Dr. Toldson for he will be missed.... But joyful in that we know the kindness he had was God, therefore the father smiles on him on that heavenly mountain above. We send our sincere deepest sympathy and heartfelt prayers to you in this your time of sorrow. May God give you his abundant peace and strength.
From the Heart,
Kenny, Jewell, Justin (JK)
