Family-Placed Death Notice
Antoinette Marie Adams, age 50, passed away July 22, 2007 in her home in Norcross, GA. Toni was born in PA, the daughter of surviving parents Anthony and Genevieve Adams. Toni was known for her energetic spirit and her sense of humor. She had a love of life attitude that was contagious. Toni worked at the floral shop, Concord Designs, in Smyrna and she once said that people in life are like a bouquet and always reminded them to wake up and smell the flowers. She also managed a restaurant, Soup Garden, for many years where customers grew to love her larger than life personality. She spent hours tending to her garden and filled her Saturdays searching for treasures at yard sales. She surrounded herself with a vast collection of angels as well as Boyds Bears. Toni is survived by her children, Kelly, Katie, and Patrick Burns, her siblings, Tony Adams, Theresa Szymoniak, and Michelle Spencer, her sister-in-law Mary and her nieces and nephews, Bobby, Richelle, Christopher, and Genny Szymoniak, and Bailey, Abby, and Tyler Spencer.
