Antoinette (Coscia) Tanfani, 89,

  Antoinette (Coscia) Tanfani, 89, of Milford and Delray Beach FL, died peacefully, May 18, 2013, at the Blaire House of Milford surrounded by her family. She was the wife of the late Livio Tanfani who died in 1997. Born in Milford July 1, 1923, she was the daughter of the late Michael and Lucia (DeMoura) Coscia and was a lifelong Milford resident. Ann was employed during war time at the Archer Rubber Factory in Milford, supplying soldiers with rain protective clothing.  Once their family was under way, she delighted in her work as manager at the former Alpen’s in Milford, a fashionable women’s clothing store on Main St., for over 25 years where she dressed and fussed over the local ladies.                                 
     Mrs. Tanfani was past president of the Italian American Veterans Women’s Auxiliary. Ann and Lee were active members of the Milford community and traveled frequently, especially enjoying their time in Delray Beach FL. She was an avid bocce and card player, a fabulous cook and baker, and enjoyed hosting many family functions.
     She is survived by her daughter Linda Tanfani of Nahant, her son Michael A. Tanfani of Edmond OK, her sister and brother-in-law Joseph and Janet Guidi of Milford and several nieces and nephews.   She was predeceased by her brothers Pacifico Coscia and Joseph Coscia.  
     The family extends their special thanks and gratitude to the staff at the Blaire House of Milford for the kind, compassionate and quality care Ann received during her 3 years stay. 
    Relatives and friends are invited to attend the funeral home services, Wednesday, May 22, 2013 at 11 A.M. in the Consigli-Ruggerio Funeral Home 46 Water St. Milford MA.

Let’s just say it like it is, there is no one better on the planet than Tony Robbins when it comes to human potential... He’s dedicated his life to this mastery and his live events (DWD and UPW) and the impact he has made will be spoken about 100 years from now. And if anyone knows what holds you back from achieving that next level version of yourself it’s him... And in all his experience (over 40 years) he says this “One Thing” is what stops people from achieving the impact, success and the influence they desire and deserve more than anything else. People will pay Tony thousands for this information but since you’ve been so engaged this week and shown that you have a desire for next level impact and success… Dean did something special ;-) He extracted this lesson (which he learned from Tony years ago) and shot a brand new video to teach you the “One Thing” that holds most people back from the life they desire (and could be holding you back as we speak)... So go watch the new video Dean just posted that crushes that one thing and opens you up to a new world of limitless opportunities: Like I said it’s most likely affecting you right this moment and you’re not even aware of it!! But once you understand it and know how to conquer it - life will never be the same again. This brand new video will expose that “One Thing” and show you how to crush it, overcome it and not be left behind. There’s no worse feeling on the planet than missing your chance... Go watch it all the way to the end, get ready to take action and then never let this hold you back again from you living out your full potential. P.S. Life is too short to play small and to simply wish and wonder what your next level looks like. It's time you can gain access to the capabilities that can allow you to soar. Click below to watch now!

Linda and Michael, Your mom will always have a special place in my heart. I enjoyed the time we had when we could just sit and talk, or share a hug while I worked and sometimes on my days off. Often we would share a dance or a song in the hallway on the way to dinner. Each time I saw her, I would call her my Princess and she would smile and say I love you too. I loved to hear stories of "My Michael or My Linda" she loved you so. You Rest now my sweet Princess, I'll Love You Always.
