TOBY VAN HERPEN Obituary
Van Herpen, Toby, age 67, of Anaheim Hills, CA passed away peacefully on January 17, 2013 after a short, strong and courageous battle with lung cancer. She was surrounded by her family. She is survived by her husband of 50 years, Ron Van Herpen; daughter, Sherry Wakely; son in law, Michael Wakely; and three grandchildren, Heather, Ryan and Alex Wakely. Her family was the light of her life.

Toby worked as a hairdresser in the city of Orange for 35 years during which she made many dear friends and enjoyed the day to day comaraderie with her clients.

She was the co-owner of Back Alley Hair for many years and retired from Marc Leigh Salon in 2011. Before her cancer diagnosis in July 2012, she was able to take time and enjoy life with her family and friends. She and Ron celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on April 28, 2012 with those they loved. She will be remembered as a kind, thoughtful, hardworking, loving person. Her bright and positive outlooks on life combined with her sense of humor were a joy to all and helped her and family through the short battle she so couragesly fought.

In addition to her family and friends, Toby will be remembered lovingly and missed dearly by her adoring Labradoodle, Holly and 2 grand-dogs Sophie and Radar.

Not a day will go by that we will not remember "I love you more, I love you best"

Graveside service at Holy Sepulcher Catholic Cemetery and Celebration of Life will be held with a small group of family and friends. In lieu of flowers, donations in Toby's name can be made to St., Jude Children's Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN. 38105.
