Valdez, Antionette (Toni)

Toni Valdez passed away on March 3, 2017 at the age of 84. She was known for her vibrant personality, dazzling beauty and her million dollar smile. She never met a stranger and thrived in the social realm.

Toni was a survivor and never backed down from any challenge. She was very active in her church, politics, numerous civic clubs and a "champion" runner until the age of 81! Her career with Bell Telephone System spanned 35 years.

She is survived by her husband of 42 years, Alfred Valdez; her stepdaughter, Lisa and husband, Lorenzo; stepson, Mark (Wendy); grandchildren, Austin (Jenae) and Bria; niece, Winter; nephews, Tommy, Billy; and dear cousins, Beth and Shane.

The family thanks her caregivers: Carmen, Jina, Luisa, and Erica.

A mass was celebrated in her honor at Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church. No flowers please. Donations to the Church Building Fund may be made at: 1860 Griegos Rd. Albuquerque, 87107. Please visit our online guestbook for Toni at
