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 for prayer, vigil, and healing when her ashes are buried at St. Mary Cemetery in Evergreen Park; date yet to be determined but looking towards spring for warmer weather.

I truly loved to cook for you , because I know you appreciated it. We have so many great memories , I will never forget when I would come over to hang out with Jeff , you were always so caring and motherly . You had a incredibly soft sweet and caring spirit . Thank you for all the kind words you gave to me over the years . It was so hard to see you in pain , my heart was hurting for you , I wanted to do something , anything I could , that last recent visit we had , I wish now I would have held on and hugged you longer if I would have known it was going to be my last visit with you . Be at peace now Auntie Toni , and give hugs to Jeff , my Dad, and everyone up there when you guys get together for Coffee. Lol. Love forever . Nicky Jr.
