Antoinette Mary Friedberg, 71 years old, passed away peacefully at home
January 13th 2021; beloved and devoted wife of Theodore for 51 years; loving
mother of surviving son Andrew (34) and the late Jeffrey (23); mother-in-law
to Kaellen Brown; dear sister to the surviving Patricia Norwood and the late
Cecilia Amato and Frank Amato Jr.; daughter to the late Frank Amato Sr. and
Patricia (Morrissey); countless family, in-laws, and friends touched by her
time with us - Friedberg, Amato, Norwood, Hite, Cascarano, Matejovsky, and
many more. Her dedicated, family-oriented mindset was her greatest gift to
us all.

Antoinette "Toni" was born on February 16th 1949 at Walther Memorial
Hospital in Chicago. Toni graduated from St. Columbkille high school in
1966. She had a natural talent for cooking and art, specifically drawing, at
which she was a savant and passed the skill to her two sons. She also had a
strong and lasting interest in beauty and fashion. She was of Italian,
Irish, other European descent, and a devout Catholic. Toni met her husband
Theodore "Ted" at a party in 1968 and their meeting was truly love at first
sight. After a brief period of dating, Toni and Ted proceeded to marry on
October 18th 1969 at Justice of the Peace. Living on Belmont Avenue with her
husband Ted in 1970, she bore her first boy, Jeffrey Edward Friedberg, who
suddenly and unexpectedly left this life in 1993. In 1985, Toni and Ted
moved near Midway airport on the Southside of Chicago and have resided there
since. Shortly thereafter in 1986, she gave birth to her second son, Andrew
Alexander Friedberg, who remains with us.

No service will be held at her request. However, please feel free to join us

Cemetery in Evergreen Park; date yet to be determined but looking towards
spring for warmer weather.
