Antoinette “Toni” Calabrese Godiska
Antoinette Godiska, 87, of Bath, Pa., passed away peacefully on September 28 at Sacred Heart Senior Living in Northampton. Toni was born on Sept. 13, 1935, in Easton, Pa., to the late Salvatore and Margaret Calabrese.
Toni’s joy of life did not end with her death, as she joined her loving husband, many family members, and most importantly Jesus. She worked at Dixie Cup in Easton and the Old Mill Clothing Outlet in Bethlehem, while being a loving mother to her two boys. She served as a Eucharistic minister and lector at Sacred Heart Church in Bath and led the Rosary prayer group at Sacred Heart Living. She had a great love of life and Nature, and the smallest things brought her joy and smiles. For decades, her family could always count on a phone call or an in-person serenade of “Happy Birthday” on her flute. She was a devoted and loving wife; wonderful and supportive mom; loving sister; and playful grandmother. She will be remembered by her fond nicknames given to her by the super amazing staff at Sacred Heart Senior Living in Northampton: Toni Roni, Toni Bologni, Roni and Toni Rice a Roni.
She is survived by her sons, Frank and his wife Michele, and Ron and his wife Jennifer; grandchildren Sadie, Thomas, and Joseph; sisters Virginia Beltz and Jenny Padula; brother Santo; and many nieces and nephews. Antoinette was predeceased by her husband, Joseph Godiska, brother James Calabrese, and sisters Rosie Hunt, Josephine Marakovits, and Susie Argentati.
