Known by many as “Toni”, she was blessed with many friends throughout her life who found her to be compassionate, loving and a person of great integrity. Once you became a friend of Toni’s you were never forgotten and always loved. Some of Toni’s fondest memories were of her youth in Brooklyn where she lived with and nearby many family members. This togetherness shaped her into the warm woman she would become. Toni worked in Lower Manhattan as Assistant to the Founder and Chairman at States Marine Lines prior to getting married in 1956 and raising her family. She remained active through volunteerism and her local garden club. Most of all, she will forever be remembered as a loving wife, mother and grandmother.
