September 2, 1930 - November 26, 2021
Antoinette D. "Toni" Toohill, 91, of Chateaugay, N.Y., passed away peacefully, Friday, November 26, 2021, at the UVM Health Network, CVPH in Plattsburgh, surrounded by her loving family. Antoinette was born in Ellenburg on September 2, 1930. She was the second of thirteen children born to the late Edward and Emma (Bushey) Dominic. She was a graduate of Ellenburg Central High School and the Loretta Business School in Plattsburgh. She was previously employed at the Ellenburg Central School and the Chateaugay Central School for many years. Antoinette married her Irish love, William "Bill" Toohill on September 6, 1954, at St. Edmunds Church, Ellenburg, by Rev Lawrence Taylor. She was a devout Catholic, loved her family unconditionally, and learned the value of hard work living on the family farm throughout her life. She loved roses, a symbol and sign of St. Therese, who she prayed to frequently and faithfully. Mother Cabrini Shrine was her favorite shrine to visit; she loved the peace that radiated from the beautiful surroundings. Antoinette's life circled and evolved around the love and joy she found in her family, the devotion and passion in her faith and love of God, and her dedication to the farm, for she was the heart and soul of the Toohill family homestead. She will be remembered by her grandchildren for her loving nurturing spirit, and for her delicious chocolate chip cookies and homemade baked rolls, but most of all, for her big, warm loving hugs. She will also be remembered for her patience, spirituality, and genuine kindness. Our beloved Antoinette will be forever loved and missed. We were so blessed to have her in our lives. Left to cherish her memory are her children: Bill Toohill and his wife Sherry of Malone, John Toohill and his wife Shelly of Plattsburgh, Jamie Toohill and his companion Kelly Shanahan of Chateaugay, Anne Petro and her husband David of Morrisonville, Jay Toohill and his wife Sue of Chazy, Angela Toohill and her companion Orlin Lobdell of Chateaugay; nine grandchildren: Heather (Michael) Williams, Jonathan Toohill, Jesse (Jennifer) Toohill, Brittany, Andrew (Emily), and Nathan Petro, Ashley and Cody Toohill, Owen Toohill, and one great granddaughter, Evalyn Williams. Her siblings: Reginald, Mayfred Chaffee, Ragel (Maureen), Roland (Shirley), Nancy Wayne, Marylee (Roy) Fonner, Larry (Valerie), Robert and Jane (Anthony) Angello and her sister- in-law Donna. She was predeceased by her parents, husband Bill, and son Andre, as well as her brothers: Maynard, Gary, Billy, and in-laws Joan Dominic and Doug Chaffee. As per Antoinette's wishes, there will be no calling hours. Services will be private and at the convenience of the family. Donations in her memory may be made to the Chateaugay or Burke Fire Departments, or masses in her memory.
