On a beautiful sunny day, Thursday, September 19, 1985, Antoinette Laura Senior was born in Muhlenberg Regional Hospital, Plainfield, New Jersey to Derrick A. Senior and Elizabeth A. Harmon.
Antoinette began her education in the Plainfield School System. She attended Emerson Elementary School in Plainfield, New Jersey and then went on to attend Seth Boyden Elementary Demonstration School in Maplewood, New Jersey and then moved on to East End Elementary School in North Plainfield, New Jersey. She then went on to graduate from North Plainfield High School in North Plainfield, New Jersey in Year 2004.
Antoinette was a loving person who was an avid and competitive video game player who always challenged her siblings. She loved going to beaches and amusement parks with her brother and she had memorable moments with her daughter, Stephanie, whom she always referred to as “Baby Girl.” Antoinette had a keen sense of humor; she was gifted with an artistic sense of style and her smile was just as big as her heart.
Family was everything for Antoinette. She loved her family passionately and her family loved her just as much. And so, she embarked on a quest to know and learn about every family member; and it didn’t matter their geographic location…she found a way to reach that family member to learn more about her roots. She was a family person.
Antoinette loved all different kinds of food; Jamaica cuisine, Trinidadian cuisine, Spanish food, American cuisine….and she loved and ate food with content. “I don’t play with food,” she would comment with a big, broad smile. She passionately loved music, dancing, travelling and food. More importantly, she loved Reggae music so much that she coined her favorite song as “Walking Trophy,” by Hood Celebrity, the song you have just listened. We sincerely miss you!
Antoinette is predeceased by her grandfather, Benjamin F. Senior, grandfather, Roland Green, Lisa Flakes, Clayton A. Senior, William Harmon, Carol Harmon, Rhona Senior and Elroy Harmon.

Hendricks; grandmothers, Norma Chambers and Alice Flakes; brother, Kenneth Harmon; sister, Stacy Senior; brother Richard Senior; 1 niece, 2 nephews, 7 uncles, 9 aunts, and a host of other loving family members.
