Our beloved mother, grandmother and friend, Toni Anderson, 57, earned her angel's wings and was welcomed by St. Peter at the Gates of Heaven on Friday, July 20, 2012. Toni was a homemaker who devoted her life caring for her family and friends. Her greatest joy was cheering for her grandson - "my Marcus" - at his sporting events, bragging about her son Adam's many accomplishments in the military, and spending time with her companion, Gabe. Toni will fondly be remembered for her free spirit, compassionate nature and for ending every conversation with "I love you." Those she left behind to celebrate her life include her loving companion, Gabriel Ramirez, of the family home, her daughter Brigitte Zigelhofer of Las Cruces, N.M., her son CW2 Adam Zigelhofer, U.S. Army, and his wife Jessica of Fairbanks, Alaska, three grandchildren, Marcus Inglemon of Las Cruces, Lillian and Lance Zigelhofer of Fairbanks, and many extended family members including Julia Serna, Mr. and Mrs. Armando Cordero, Mr. and Mrs. Santiago Alarcon and family, and Mr. and Mrs. Adolpho Serna III and family. Toni is preceded in death by her parents Ken and Patricia Anderson and beloved daughter Crystal Zigelhofer. The prayer vigil for Toni will begin at 9 a.m., Thursday, July 26, 2012 at Our Lady of Purification Catholic Church in Doña Ana, N.M. The funeral mass will follow immediately thereafter. Cremation and internment will be held at a later date. Service arrangements have been entrusted to the care of Baca's Funeral Chapels and Sunset Crematory, 300 E. Boutz Road, Las Cruces, N.M.
