Tributes for

Toffel, Carole Ann

Toffel, Carole Ann, born in Los Angeles on February 1, 1939 along with her twin Brother Kenny to Robert and Elizabeth Vaughn, Carole Ann Toffel passed away peacefully at the age of 77 after a courageous battle with arthritis and cancer on June 11, 2016 in her Burbank home surrounded by her immediate family.

Carole was raised in Burbank and graduated from Burbank High School with honors in 1957. Soon afterword she married Lee Toffel and moved to Arleta, California where she would soon be the proud mother of Robert Toffel (1958), Alan Toffel (1960) and Linda Toffel (1963). She worked part time, while raising three young children, at the Talley Rand restaurant in Burbank as a waitress. She was a very active member of the PTA and supported numerous charitable organizations. Carole was dedicated mother and friend to all.

The family eventually moved back to Burbank in 1974 where Carole started a new career at Republic Federal Savings and Loan as a Bank Teller. She eventually put herself through college and rose to the rank of Bank President and held that title until she retired. Carole was heavily involved with the Burbank City of Commerce, multiple charitable organizations and was named women of the year in Burbank in 1985.

Carole's health declined in her later years due to rheumatoid arthritis and she was forced to retire earlier than she would have liked but she took this free time to do what she loved to do best, give back to the community. She spent most of her last year's spending time with family and friends, working for
the church thrift store and offering her time and home to others in need.

Carole is survived by her son Robert Toffel and his wife Annie, Alan and Tricia Toffel and Linda Young. She is also survived by her greatest joys in life, her grandchildren; Max, Ben and Charlie Toffel and Samantha Rivera and Dustin Young. She was lucky enough to enjoy her great grandchild, Dominic Rivera, born 12/30/2015, for a short while. Carole made the world a better place and our family will forever miss her smile, kindness and unconditional love.

Funeral ceremony will be held Saturday, June 18th, at the Burbank First United Methodist Church at 700 N. Glenoaks Blvd. in Burbank at 3:30pm. Reception immediately following at 933 N. Lincoln St. in Burbank. In lieu of flowers, please don't vote for Hillary Clinton.
