Toni A. Fless of Fernandina Beach, Fl passed away peacefully on Thursday November 9, 2017 at The  Warner Center for Caring at the early age of 68.

She was born on July 31, 1949 in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada to the late Ormen and Beverly DiGiamberardine.  Toni was preceded in death by her two sisters; Pearl and Ruby.

    Don and Family,
    We are saddened to learn of Toni’s passing. We had many fun times with you both, Adam, Cori, and Cal. Although distance made it hard to keep in touch, we often thought of you both. Every time we pass your old cottage at Six Mile Lake, we remember the fun days skiing and the visits. Thinking of you all. Tom and Carol Gilchrist

    My thoughts and prayers are with you Don, Adam, Cori and Cal. Toni was a wonderful and amazing individual, mother and caring wife to Don. Even though I have not see Toni, Don, Adam, Cori and Cal in many years, I have many fond memories of the times together

    I remember the day I dress up in a Santa Clause outfit and drove out to surprise the 3 children along with many other fond memories

    Toni was a very caring and talented person. She will be greatly missed. We only knew her a short time, meeting her while volunteering at the Amelia Community Theatre. She graciously contributed her enormous enthusiasm, talent and time. She had a great eye for costume, and quick hands with a needle, but most importantly, a caring manor that soothed the most recalcitrant amateur actor. I greatly regret not keeping in touch over the last few months, and knew not of her advancing illness. I will treasure the memories of working with her at ACT on Inherit the Wind and Arsenic and Old Lace,
