They married in 1958 and lived in Queens, eventually moving to Oceanside in 1968 where they lived for the remainder of their lives.

Toni was a talented artist, who enjoyed drawing, needlework, poetry and sang for many years in the St. Anthony’s choir.  She was also famous for baking the best apple pie ever.

She leaves her daughter, Steffanie Antonio and partner, Dave Lemieux; her son, Christopher and grandchildren, Miles & Avery; her many cousins in Holland; and many close friends.
