Born February 14, 2003 in Lansing, Michigan. Died on June 19, 2011 in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
Tori was a beautiful, spritely child. She had an unquenchable vitality and infectious smile. Tori played hard with her sisters and her friends and was determined to blaze a trail in becoming the first cowboy, ninja gymnast. She loved animals and was often found romping with her dog, cuddling with her cats and playing with her rabbit. She will cavort in the hearts of those who loved her forever.
Tori had a gentle soul that manifested itself in the way she cared for her friends and the people around her. She mediated disagreements, bandaged boo-boos and was full of kindness for everyone she met. She loved being outdoors and climbed every tree she could reach. She was fond of flowers, playing in the water and riding her bike as fast into the wind as possible.
Tori is survived by Mother Laura Croff, Father Jeffrey Croff, Step-Mother SaDonna Croff, Step-Father Michael Wheaton, Sisters Alexandra Croff, Isabella Croff and Josephine Croff, Step-Sisters Nicole Moon, Cassia Wolfe, Hannah Wheaton and Mia Wheaton, and Kyle Wolfe and Blaine Wheaton. Tori is also survived by many loving grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins.
