Antonetta “Toni” Carmella (Nardulli) LaMarche, age 60, of Wells, passed away peacefully at her beautiful home surrounded by family on Thursday, March 11, 2021.

Toni grew up in the suburbs of Chicago, before meeting her husband Robert “Bob” LaMarche. On a visit to Bob’s hometown of Wells, Michigan, she fell in love with the Upper Peninsula.
