In an online obituary published on
vondelsmithmortuary.com, Antonia is described as "the sweetest little ladybug" who was a beloved daughter.
"Tonie had the sweetest, most gentle and loving spirit about her," the obituary reads. "She was a beautiful young lady on the inside and out. She had her own most special and beautiful way of looking at the world. She could find the positive, good and joy in everything."
According to the obituary, Antonia always danced, not walked, to the beat of her own drum.
"She banged her drum very well. She would bang that drum so loud that others could not help but to start dancing to her beat as well," the obituary reads.
Antonia had a passion for singing and had recently auditioned to sing in the Plaza Towers Elementary School Talent Show that was to be held on the last day of school.
