Antonietta “Toni” Lombardo, 71, of Glendale, AZ, passed away on Tuesday, July 23, 2019.
To her friends, Antonietta was known simply as Toni. To her family, Antonietta was pure love. Antonietta emigrated from Italy as a child and grew up in Chicago Heights, IL. She moved to Arizona in 1978. Antonietta spent her life caring for and in service to her family, loving and caring for her husband, Franco, of 51 years, her two children, Carmen and Angelo, and her grandchildren. She cared for and nursed her parents into old age and helped raise the children of her nieces and nephews. Her friends remember her as a kind and generous person, ready to help at a moment’s notice. She was generous in death as she was in life, as a gift of her organs has brought hope to others.
Antonietta is survived by her husband, her children, her four grandchildren, her sister Faustina “Tina” and many nieces and nephews.
