Memories Timeline


  1. Minnie, Maria, Frank and families. I am so sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. She has been on my mind lately and now I know why. I have wonderful childhood memories from your Mom and mine driving us to school as well as always cooking and cleaning. She was a special lady and will be reunited with all the neighbors that have passed before her. May she rest in peace. Love to all. Donna DeMarco Zahn and family.

  2. I loved miss Antoinette, and caring for her, I remember one morning I went to get her up, and she was laughing so hard, I was trying to ask her what she was laughing at, and when she would try to tell me , she would start laughing again, finally I got some of it out of her, evidently she was dreaming about puppies, and their tails, that’s as far as we would get before she would laugh again, this went on most of the day, I would hear her laughing, and I had to laugh. I am going to miss you my angel, a big thank you to her family for letting us meet her and care for her, may God send comfort to you.

  3. Please know of my deepest sympathy and heartfelt prayers as you grieve your loss. I have very fond memories of your parents.

  4. Frank and Family, we are very sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. Please know you will be in our thoughts and prayers. Dan McCune & Family

  5. To Antoinette’s entire family, I am so very sorry for your loss. As an R.N. at Wyngate , I’ve had the pure pleasure of caring for such a wonderful lady. I will always remember in the first couple years, our chats of her years at Stone and Thomas and how proud she was of her family. In the last couple years, I often only had time to help the nurse assistants with one resident meal and it was understood by every staff member that I chose to assist Antoinette. I will sorely miss her and will never forget her! Lori Gerst

  6. Frank and Family, I am very sorry to hear of the passing of your Mom. She was a terrific Lady. I will never forget the childhood memories of having a chocolate sandwich cookie in the basement of your house on Owings. She made the best ever. God Bless Antoinette Michael & Maria Figlioli Aurora, Ohio

  7. Maria, Frank & Family, I am very sorry to hear about the passing of your mother. Thank you for letting me have the opportunity to meet her by working at Wyngate. I loved it when I would tease her about taking me to Italy and she would agree until I told her she would have to pay and she would tell me no. She was a special lady. May God Bless All of you during this difficult time. Tracine Gilliam – Activities
