Toni M. (Nunke) Skifstad, 52, of Eagan MN, formerly of Chippewa Falls, died unexpectedly on Sunday, May 14, 2017, in Eagan MN.

She worked at Blue Cross Blue Shield and Travelers. Toni loved gardening, canning, riding horses and being outside. She volunteered with several organizations and was always willing to lend a helping hand to friends and neighbors.

Toni had a big heart, but a troubled mind. She struggled with mental health issues for much of her life. She genuinely wanted to do right in this world, but her mental health challenges often got in the way.She is remembered by friends and family as someone who was very caring and friendly.
