Toni Jo Terzaghi
MICHIGAMME, MI – Toni Jo Terzaghi, age 59, of 173 Tan Road Michigamme, passed away on Monday, January 11, 2021, while in the loving care of her family and the Upper Peninsula Home Health and Hospice.
Toni was born in Sault Ste. Marie, MI on May 1, 1961, a daughter of the late Theresa (Scopilliti) and Alton Conrad, III; She was a graduate of the Negaunee High School. Toni worked as a Field Representative for the United States Census Bureau for 17 years.
Toni loved the lord and served in many different ministries in the area. Her heart was particularly in women’s ministry, and she loved to bring women together in different avenues. Always with a spiritual emphasis, she included time spent in nature and creative activities. She loved the UP, and lived life like a tourist. Living on Lake Michigamme was a dream she woke up to every day. Other than her faith, nothing was more near and dear to her heart than her family. Winters were spent quilting, traveling, and enjoying hockey weekends. Summers were full of jumping off the dock, cookouts, and campfires. True to her Italian heritage there was always too much food, lots of laughter and possibly a fight or two. Though her time was cut short, she used her time wisely with the people she loved the most.
Survivors include her husband, Kevin J. Terzaghi of Michigamme whom she married on June 16, 1978; a daughter, Nicole M. (David) Mahaffey of Ishpeming; a son, Ryan J. (Amber) Terzaghi of Clinton Twp.; 7 grandchildren – Jillian, Cameron, Brianna, Karlee Mahaffey; Isabella, Claire, Dominic Terzaghi, three sisters, Micki Hupp, of National Mine; Nannette (Wendell) Braley of Jacksonville, IL; Sandra (Tom) Belt of Gaylord; two brothers, Alton (Beth) Conrad IV of Garden; John Conrad of Marquette; along with numerous nieces and nephews.
