Antoniette E. Sanchez

Oct 28,1970---Jul 26,2019

Antoniette Ernestine Sanchez was born in Grants, NM on 10/28/70 to parents Atanacio T. Sanchez and Mary A. Sanchez and was called home to heaven by the Lord on 7/26/19. Antoniette was a very talented artist, business woman, and was very religious. She enjoyed drawing and painting, doing crafts, and recently making custom bejeweled crosses with people’s names on them. Antoniette was fun to be around and had a very sharp tongue with a sophisticated wit that was hilarious as she loved to make people laugh. She also loved watching movies, hanging around her brother, and shopping. Antoniette had incredible knowledge of business and worked with her mom Mary (Agnes) Sanchez at the store for more than 25 years and with her brother at the gym for more than 8 years. Antoniette loved taunting and teasing her younger brother Leonard P. Sanchez and was always by his side no matter what. She was a beautiful soul who would help anyone in need and would sacrifice her own well-being for others. Antoniette will be truly missed and was loved by many people especially her customers at the store.

At her request, a private service will be held in her honor. Antoniette did not want anyone to make a big fuss about her death, rather, she wanted to be remembered in life. Find your best memory of her and enjoy.

Antoniette’s family would like to thank you for all your love, prayers, and support during this difficult time.

On behalf of my family and I, we wish to offer your family our deepest and sincerest condolences for your loss. We all loved our cousin very much! She was a big part of our family and although we can't imagine the pain you're individually going through, we love you all very much. Over the years you all have been part of our family. We want to express that we are here for you if you need to talk, reminisce, a shoulder to cry on, or anything else. We extend ourselves anytime you need us. Toni was one of the most beautiful souls on this earth. She had a wonderful sense of humor and zest for life! She was a real trooper not complaining or dwelling on things as she was an inspiration to us as a true child of the Lord. With her loyalty and genuine heart she provided us with a testament of true resilience and the ultimate demonstration of how a person should be. My sister Nichole and I will always regard her as a big sis, my immediate family will always see her as a true friend and what family should be. She loved us with no judgments or strings attached. She was a huge support to many people. She was an A-1 person, truly one of a kind. RIP OUR BEAUTIFUL SISTER!! WE WILL SEE YOU AGAIN. Respectfully, Poncho-Alderete Family
