Antoinette loved to dance, always the highlight of any gathering. Even in her later years, Antoinette  was the last one  off the dance floor. Most recently she danced at her great granddaughter’s high school graduation party just 2 weeks ago.  She loved her music and playing the lottery. Antoinette was a self-taught  woman and a career civil service employee. She could accomplish  anything. Antoinette was a  strong determined woman, who worked at the Worcester Police Department, Worcester County Hospital, Registry of Motor Vehicles and retired from the Massachusetts Turnpike Authority. A spitfire of energy she taught strength, determination, and perseverance. She was the first woman union representative in Massachusetts during her career. Antoinette  at onetime won the title of “Christmas in July” at the Trump Towers in New York. She always dressed impeccable, nothing ever out of place.
