Born on November 22, 1930 in Rudersdorf, Feldkirchen, Austria, Antonia was the daughter of the late Anton and Josefa Krenn. She grew up and attended schools in Graz, Austria. Following the end of World War II, she moved to Geneva, Switzerland for seven years where she worked in various roles before returning back to Austria.

It was during her stay with relatives in Westbrook, Maine, where she met her future husband, Stanley. Antonia was a stay-at-home mom for over a decade before taking a position with Fairchild Semiconductor. She later left Fairchchild to join the Westbrook school system as one of the custodians at Congin Elementary School. She loved working at Congin and would often ride her bicycle to work. For over a decade, Antonia was an active member in the German American Club in Portland where she enjoyed the friendship of fellow German speaking women, and participating in social events and parties including an annual Oktoberfest event. Antonia had an easy-going and fun-loving personality and was always happy to see an old friend or make a new friend. She loved to travel, including frequent trips back to Austria to visit family. She was proud of her Austrian heritage and she enjoyed hosting family and friends and often served delicious Austrian dishes such as weinersnitchel at her home.
