Toni was born in Lansing, Michigan, on January 28, 1940, the eldest daughter of Mr. & Mrs. James and Ruth (Adado) Lupino. She and John Adado were united in marriage at All Saints Church in Flint, on January 3, 1959.
Toni was a woman of grace, kindness, and beauty. A grace exemplified in her impeccable words and generosity. Her kindness was felt through her inspiring and robust relationship with her husband. Her beauty burst through with never-ending childlike joy, love, and thoughtfulness.
She was a ray of sunshine with a smile that brightened up every room. Her home was always open, feeding all that walked into the door. No one ever left without a full stomach and laughs over a pot of coffee.
Toni’s favorite places to be in her garden and on the back porch with her family and friends. She joked, she laughed, and she shared stories and made memories.
Antionette is survived by her loving husband, John; daughters: Ruth and Christine; son, Mark Adado (Melanie); six grandchildren: Stephanie Adado and Jason Adado Dellarusso, Jeremy Adado, Nina Adado, Makenzie Adado, Morgan Adado, and Madison Adado; one great-grandson, Jason Dellarusso, Jr.; sisters: Mary, Martha, and Pam; brothers: James, and Ted; and many nieces, nephews and friends.
Antionette was preceded in death by her son John S. Adado; parents; and sister Sandra.
The family would like to extend a special thank you to Heartland Hospice for all of their compassion and care.
