Antoinette “Toni” Worthey of Dover, Delaware went home to be with the Lord on April 7, 2018. She was 55 years old. Toni was born on April 3, 1963 in Chestertown, Maryland to Gwendolyn “Annie” Westbrook and J.C. Worthey.
Toni attended Caroline County public schools for the majority of her education; she graduated from Dover High School in 1981.
Toni was employed by Playtex for many years. The company split and eventually moved to North Carolina.
Not long afterward Toni joined the United States Air Force Reserves and achieved the rank of Senior Master Sergeant; she was still performing active service as part of the Yellow Ribbon program when she learned of her illness. Antoinette was also a correction officer assigned to the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center.
When not at work Toni could be found creating something. She was masterful at landscaping and had a great love for flowers, plants, decorating, volleyball, and her beloved Dallas Cowboys. Anything that involved creating was Toni’s forte; whether drawing, painting, or doing hair, she had skills!
Toni is survived by her mother, Gwendolyn Westbrook (Delaware), her father J.C. Worthey (Georgia); four brothers: Phillip Worthey (Connecticut), Robert Worthey (Maryland), her twin Anthony Worthey(Sherry) (Wisconsin), and Christopher Worthey (Georgia); three sisters: Gail Worthey (Delaware), Imogene “Penny” Baynard (Bobby) (Maryland), and Michelle Westbrook (Delaware). She is preceded in death by her brother, James Worthey. She leaves to mourn a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and four very close and personal friends: Anna P. Worthey (Virginia), Fredrick Upchurch, Margaret Mosley, and Muriel (Elaine) Williams.
