Mrs. Antonietta Grande

Antonietta was a kind, caring woman who loved spending quality time with her family and friends. She enjoyed being outdoors, gardening, cooking, and going to the beach. She liked preparing meals for family and friends and often hosted large family holiday gatherings. There was always a sense of togetherness and love in her home. She was a wonderful mother, grandmother and great-grandmother who always welcomed family and friends into her home and was never short on words of wisdom. No matter what obstacles she faced in her life, she always came out stronger — she was a fighter. She will be greatly missed and fondly remembered by all who knew her.
Due to the constraints surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic a private burial will take place at the Notre-Dame-des-Neiges Cemetery.
