Bernetta Lynn Croxton Toll


Bernetta Lynn Croxton Toll gained her heavenly wings and joined God in heaven on Wednesday, April 29, 2020. She passed this life peacefully at Olathe Hospice where she had been recently transferred from her home.

Bernetta was born in Paola, December 6, 1946 to her parents, George H. & Pauline N. Gray Croxton. Paola remained Bernetta’s home for her entire life, graduating from Paola High School in 1964. Her church membership was at First Christian Church of Paola.

She had various jobs over the years, but all were service to her community, either to the children or senior citizens of Paola. Service to others was her lifestyle, often putting the needs of others before herself. Bernetta will be missed by many and always loved by those who truly knew her.

Family members who have passed before her were her parents, grandparents and stepdaughter, Dacia.

She is survived by her husband, Ben of the home, stepson Thad and stepdaughter Allegra, two cousins Leo Gray and Karen Browning and a whole host of friends in this area.


A memorial service will be held in Wallace Park Shelter House, Wednesday May 6, 11:00 AM and her final resting place will be with her parents at Miami Memorial Garden.

    I will miss Bernetta she use to babysit me when I was a little girl. I remember she would always take me out for my birthday for a special lunch or sitting with her and her mom at church was one of my fonnest memories . I will treasure those moments forever. I know she is at peace and is looking down on us. Rest in peace

    Love Amanda Folsom-Story
