Meet Toni Baumgartner

Posted on July 1, 2020 at 11:35 AM by Denise Cartina


 "Toni Baumgartner has lived in Naperville since 
1952. Her and her late husband Ron's legacy lives on in her 10 children, 26 grandchildren, and 18 great grand children. She owns Baumgartner Construction Inc. and is pleased to have 4 sons and 2 grandchildren in the business. They have literally built and fixed many pieces of Naperville and surrounding towns. In addition to running a company, she also served as a swim coach at Benet Academy for many years. Most of her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren still live in Naperville as well. She continues to be active in her community as a member of the dance team at Villa St. Benedict, among many other activities. Most recently, she has been making face masks for all her neighbors and friends at Villa and for her family. I've never met someone more brave, strong, or full of life than this woman and I hope when I am 89 (90 in September) I can still play golf and drink vodka with all my friends and family like a boss. If anyone deserves to be recognized and remembered, it is this lady!"
