A celebration of Tonya's life will be held on February 13, 2016 at 1:00pm at Kern River Family Mortuary.
Tonya left this earth peacefully and unexpectedly as the lord received her spirit in heaven. Tonya is survived by her mother Paulett, John, daughter Ashley, sister Tanesha, nieces Kaila, Elysia, Haily, Emma and nephew Johnny, Auntie Diann, Aunt Nan and many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
Tonya is preceded in death by her two year old daughter Ui'lani, father Gary and grandparents and her favorite dog Maile.
Tonya was born in Bakersfield, grew up in Hawaii and also lived in Minnesota, Missouri and Chicago, then back to Bakersfield where she attended nursing school and worked several years as a medical assistant. She was the ultimate care giver that was her passion.
Tonya's beautiful smile, twinkle in her eyes and love of children will greatly be missed. Our lives will never be the same, we love and miss you.
