Antoinette "Sis" M. Muscato
Antoinette is the bond that held our family together. She
was the most positive and optimistic person ever. She was proud
of her Italian heritage and instilled those values and
traditions in us, which we will never forget.
Antoinette was a friend to many, had a generous heart, and
was a joy with whom to celebrate life. She had life-long
friends who treasured her companionship and advice. Her spirit
will live on forever in our hearts.
Through all the trials and tribulations she encountered in
her life, Sis worked hard and sacrificed her entire life to
provide her children and grandchildren with everything they
needed. She loved, supported, and protected them and her family
endlessly. She beamed with pride over their accomplishments.
Sis was a delicious cook and specialized in many dishes.
Relatives and friends feasted on her savory Italian meals. How
she looked forward to baking scrumptious cookies at Christmas!
