    Antonia L. “Toni” Vigil, 58, of Moab, Utah passed away on Oct. 28, 2011 of heart complications.

    Antonia was born in Price, Utah on Jan. 27, 1953 to Frank and Marie Vigil and grew up in Monticello, Utah. She later moved to Salt lake City, Utah. In 1973, she met her life’s companion, Jack Hamilton and they moved to Moab in 1991.

    “Toni” was employed at the Apache Motel from 1991 until her illness in 2009. Together, Toni and Jack enjoyed walking everywhere in Moab and were delighted when grandchildren later joined these jaunts.

    Toni is survived by Jack Hamilton; Randy Vigil; Alex Lilah Swint; Tim (Maggie) Hamilton; and the loving lights of her life, grandchildren MacKenzie, Trenton and Macy Hamilton. She is also survived by her mother, Marie, of Colorado; a brother, Nick, of Salt Lake City; and sisters, Nancy of Salt Lake City and Barbara of Colorado.

    She was preceded in death by her father, Frank, and two brothers, Johnny and David.

    At Toni’s request, cremation has taken place and the family will hold a private service to commemorate Toni’s life.

    The family wishes to thank Dr. Patrick Shearer and Kay Osteen for their kindness and heroic efforts on Toni’s behalf – she wouldn’t have made it this far without you.
