Longtime Kenai resident Antonia Annette "Toni" Olivieri, 64, passed away Thursday, Feb. 11, 2021 at Central Peninsula Hospital in Soldotna.
A celebration of her life will take place in March 2022.
Toni was born Mar. 31, 1956 in San Pedro, Calif. She moved to Kenai in 1995 and worked for the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District.
She enjoyed arts and crafts, gardening, cooking and baking. "Crafts by Toni Olivieri" spread throughout the community like blooming flowers in the sun.
Her family writes, "Toni was my very best friend and my soul partner. Her heart of gold shined from the love of her mother, which showed a mother's love for everyone. Her biggest pride and joy was being a grandmother. She loved and touched so many in her life. Toni was always going above and beyond to make sure others knew they were her top priority. Just as she loved, she is forever in our hearts and forever and always deeply missed."
Toni is survived by her mother, Frances Harrison of California; stepfather, Lynn Harrison of California; life partner, Skip Crawford of Kenai; stepdaughter, Shelby Davis; and granddaughter, Kristina Davis, both of San Diego, Calif.
Arrangements were by Peninsula Memorial Chapel in Kenai.
