  7. It’s been a long since I’ve seen Antoinnette, but she was a good friend and I loved working with her in my kindergarten class. She will be sorely missed. God bless her family at this time of their loss.

  9. To the Marson, Pesce families and in particular Mary Lou. I am very saddened to hear about Antoinette’s passing. Although I never had the opportunity to meet her; through Mary Lou I was able to learn about this part of my family. I pray she is at peace and reunited with the love of her life, Vic. Please know I am thinking of the entire family and all who loved Antoinette. I pray you will all have God’s strength cover you as you go through this difficult time. I believe once our souls go to Heaven, we are all reunited with our loved ones regardless of what occurred in the journey of life. May she Rest In Peace.

    With love,
    Christopher Pratola-Carozzo

  13. Vic, Steve, Mary Lou, Lou and families,

    What a wonderful person. She and Vic were a true gift to the “real” Kennett Square. Many fond memories growing up in Kennett Square on South Broad St. and it was the coolest place to be. Baseball with Rich. Vic and Tony were a delight to be around….always! Their memories will give you solace. May she rest in peace.

  14. She was my friend along with my children’s grandmother and great grandmother. We enjoyed many trips to Penn State and also several bus trips. She was a joy to be around and I will miss her smile. Rest In Peace after a long struggle, but you were a fighter. My thoughts and prayers go out to all her family.
