Antonia (Toni) Maxwell (nee LaValle), age 82, passed away peacefully in her Lakewood home on January 7, 2021.
Toni was born on the west side of Cleveland on July 12, 1938 to Frank and Rose LaValle (nee Costanzo). Toni was preceded in death by her husband John and brother Frank LaValle. Toni is survived by her brother Gene LaValle (Peggie), sister-in-law Louise LaValle; daughters Ruthann Kostadinov (Sasha) and Sarah Szalay (Steve) and many much loved cousins, nieces, nephews and friends.
She was an avid reader, excellent cook, longtime Indians fan and Cleveland Orchestra enthusiast. Some of her fondest memories were the fun-filled trips to Las Vegas and Italy with her family and friends. She will be missed.
