Antoinette R. SeminerioGrafton – Antoinette R. Seminerio (Moschella), 88, passed away on June 29, 2021 following an illness.

She is survived by her loving husband of 62 years, Eugene J. Seminerio; her daughter, Maria Seminerio Lee; her son-in-law, Huan L. Lee; and her granddaughters, Olivia M. Lee and Charlotte M. Lee; along with many nieces and nephews. Antoinette’s seven siblings and her son, Eugene Seminerio Jr., all predeceased her.

She was born May 9, 1933 in Morristown, N.J. and her roots were there before she moved briefly to Paterson, N.J., and eventually settled with her husband in North Haledon, N.J. where they lived for many years.

Antoinette previously worked at Eva’s Village in Paterson as an Administrative Assistant and was dedicated to their work in the community. Closer to home she was a proud “Nana,” and she found joy in cooking, baking, and hosting holidays at her home.

She was always engaged politically and was a champion for progressive and human rights causes. She also loved the company of her cats throughout her life and was passionate about animal welfare.

In lieu of flowers please honor Antoinette with a donation to Eva’s Village, 393 Main St., Paterson, N.J. 67501.
