Even a near century of love & strength & service seems short - to family & friends of a vital departed soul, who has gone ahead of them. I only learned of “Antoinette’s” beautiful spirit & strength recently from her fine son, Tony. Knowing Tony & his amazing wife Peggy for several years feels like a direct gift from this strong & purposeful lady from another era. Sending much care & love to them & to her extended family at this time of passing & grief.

We honor and remember with great fondness our "Aunt" Ann - an elegant, compassionate, spirit-filled, loving friend with a great sense of humor and true zest for life. My mom, Elizabeth adored her...and they were "besties" for seven decades. Their conversations were long, deep. far ranging and really quite humorous. I can still hear Aunt Ann's voice saying....."ooooh Betty". She loved, supported, guided and gave so unselfishly to all in her life. We were inspired by her deeply held belief in Jesus, faithfulness, continual prayers and kind heart - What an incredible Christian role model for a life well lived. We send our deep condolences to the Hauser and D'Urso family - May you be comforted by the knowledge that she was welcomed to heaven by Her Lord, Jesus in everlasting love, peace and joy. God bless you all.
