Tonya Jolyn Horst, 5 year old daughter of Andy and LuAnn Horst of Dalton, died on Saturday, October 8, 2022 from injuries sustained at an accident at her home
She was born in Mount Eaton on January 18, 2017.
She is lovingly missed by her parents; 4 brothers, Bradlyn, Jaron, Adrian and Kory; her only dear sister, Kaitlyn, all of the home; grandparents, Lola Horst and Roger and Joanne Eberly, all of Dalton; great grandparents, Peter and Reta Steckle of Zurich, Ont. and Luella Eberly of Dalton; and numerous loving aunts and uncles and many little cousins.
She was preceded in death by her dear infant brother, Logan on January 4, 2022; her paternal grandpa, Ben Horst; all four paternal great parents; and maternal great grandpa, Clarence Eberly; and one uncle, Darrick Eberly.
She was our cheerful sunbeam and our little songbird. Since the disappointment of losing her baby brother, she had a deep longing to go to heaven and had many long hours discussing heaven and singing songs of heaven, many of which she made up on her own. She will be greatly missed by all.
