Theresa (Buettner) Antonioni “Teri”, age 51, of Cascade, WI, passed away peacefully on Friday, November 16, 2018 with her loving family and friends by her side after a courageous battle with breast cancer. Teri was born in Milwaukee on December 17, 1966, to Fred and Marlene (Totsky) Buettner Jr. She graduated with the class of 84 at Hartford High School. After high school, she did secretarial work for various companies. She came to work as a tax accountant with Dunn Accounting in 1992 and started working toward her Associate Degree in Accounting at Moraine Park Technical College. In 1996 Dunn Accounting moved and she became employed by Glynn Accounting. She became an Enrolled Agent, licensed to practice tax law, and completed her Associate Degree in tax and accounting. She continued to work there for 22 years, until the day she passed away. On August 12, 1994, she was married to Louis Antonioni, they lived in Horicon, and later moved to Burnett. She was a board member with the Midwest Holland Lop Club for many years and she also belonged to the American Rabbit Breeders Association. She was involved in developing a new color of the Holland Lop breed. Teri was known for her artistic talents – especially painting, often depicting her love for wildlife and landscapes. She loved animals, especially her bunnies, cats and dogs. She was always enjoying outdoor activities, especially hunting, fishing, kayaking, trap shooting, camping, snowmobiling, tubing, and hiking. Teri also enjoyed motorcycle riding and got her family to start riding with her. She was always singing along to music, from rock to country, and enjoyed karaoke.
She will be missed by her daughter, Larissa (Erik) Antonioni, Cascade, WI; her mother, Marlene Dunn Till, Neenah; two sisters: Stephanie (Adam) Dunn, Neenah and Meghan (Craig) LaPoint, Oshkosh; niece Alexis; 2 nephews: Kenshin and Gray; and her loving boyfriend, Rodney Temple, Hartford. She will also be missed by her family and friends all across the country.
She was preceded in death by her father Fred Buettner Jr., paternal grandparents Fred Buettner Sr. and Rita Mull, maternal grandparents Gustave and Bernice Totsky, and her step-father Richard Till.
