Antonietta’s kitchen was her domain, where she would share delicious meals, wisdom and laughter. She was the heart and backbone of her family. Her unwavering commitment to her loved ones shined in every dish of pasta cooked, cookie baked , life experience told and in every laugh shared. She poured her heart and soul into nurturing her family. She left an indelible mark in the hearts of her family and all those who were lucky enough to have known her. Antonietta had a knack for bestowing culinary and life wisdom at the same time: Keep it simple, take your time, Use your common sense.

Antonietta showed us all what it means to live a full life. She leaves behind a legacy of love, resilience and unwavering commitment. Her spirit will live on in the recipes passed down, the laughter shared and the bonds that tie her family together. May her soul find eternal rest, and may her memory continue to inspire us.
