ALTURA, MN - Antoinette M. "Toni" Pasche, 81, of Altura, MN died on Saturday, April 6, 2019, at her home.

Toni enjoyed crossword puzzles, coin collecting, and watching her favorite tv show, "The Price is Right". One of her favorite things to do was getting together every Sunday night to play cards with friends and family. It had become a family tradition and anyone who could make it would be there. Some Sundays it would be maybe 10, but some nights as many as 20 or more people would come to play "Golf", "Up and Down the River", or "500". Toni was also a diehard Nascar fan and loved cheering for her favorite driver, Jimmie Johnson.
Toni was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. Spending time with family was her greatest joy.
Toni was a member of Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Rollingstone, MN.
