Antonette “Toni” Osep
(Nee Toms) Toni walked into the Arms of her Lord and Savior on Feb. 19, 2013, at the age of 96. She was the loving wife of her late husband Frank; dear mother of Sharon, Sandy and Ed (Mary); loving grandmother of John (Cheryl), David (Tammy), Amity (Sunil), Eddie (Rachel), Danny (Leslie),Mike (Leagh), Matt and Tommy; sweet great-grandmother of Kelly, Katie, Leigh, Jenna, Jordan, MacKenzie, Ian and Marley; and precious great-great grandmother of Joey. She was also dearly loved by her sisters Kate, Louise and Leona, and by her nephews Don (Judy) and Roger (Susanne), and her nieces Kathie (the late Bill), Linda (Denny) and Carol (Bill), and many other relatives and friends. Toni was famous for her delicious apple strudel, her gorgeous rose bushes, her natural green thumb in all her gardening endeavors, her excellent cooking skills, her love of Sheepshead and her genuine hospitality. No one ever left her home without a warm hug and a full tummy. She lived simply, humbly and well, always sharing what she had and sacrificing much for the sake of others. This world is a better place because she was here, and now Heaven is richer because she is there. Her family would like to thank all the staff of West Allis Memorial Hospital for the superb care and loving kindness shown to Toni while she was their patient. Visitation will be held at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church, S. 58th St. & W. Forest Home Ave., on Saturday, Feb. 23, from 1-2:30 PM. The Memorial Mass of Christian Burial will follow at 2:30 PM. Memorials to the OLOL Youth Ministry are appreciated.
