During her retirement, “Toni” Fiamingo enjoyed many activities. She and her husband would spend summers up in Ogunquit, Maine, where they had built a second home. Toni was an avid gardener, growing her own vegetables and tending to her flower garden. She loved walking the beach in the early morning hours and making her famous raspberry jam from the wild raspberries that grew in her yard, as well.  
“Toni” loved spending time with her beloved family and friends. She loved having her grandchildren visit her in Maine. She would do special activities with them such as making pizza dough, going to the beach with their boogie boards in tow and taking them to catch crabs off the footbridge. She also enjoyed sewing, knitting, making fancy desserts, stenciling, and making Christmas ornaments, all of which were evident in her home.
