 “Toni” as she was known by many, was employed for several years by Twin Tiers Anesthesia.  She retired as a Medical Records Technician from Broadway Animal Hospital in Elmira. Some favorite past times were needlework, sewing, ceramics, home decorating, and skiing.  Toni enjoyed gardening and was a member of several flower clubs. Her flowers always did and will continue to bloom with beauty by the care of her husband and daughters.  She loved being in the kitchen and was a “Fabulous Cook” of Italian dishes and sweets, but she loved being a grandmother most of all.
She is dearly loved and will be deeply missed by her husband of 57 years, Philip; 2 daughters:  Sharlyn (David) Louch of Montour Falls and Stacey (Douglas) Wills of Dundee; 3 grandchildren: Stephanie (Chad) Moore, Matthew Wills, and Daniel Louch; 2 sisters: Nancy (Ralph) Williamson of Gainesville, G.A., Delores (Jerry) Bosley of Huntsville, A.L.; and several nieces and nephews.
