Tonya understood the value of education and always encouraged others to pursue their dreams. She herself held an Associate's degree and had received additional training from a trade school. Her commitment to knowledge served as an inspiration to her daughters and everyone else fortunate enough to cross paths with her.

Beyond her professional achievements, Tonya cherished the simple joys in life. She found solace in curling up with a good book, finding beauty in nature's embrace, connecting with others through fellowship and above all else, spending time with her beloved granddog. Tonya knew how to appreciate the little moments that make life truly worth living.

Left to honor Tonya's memory is her loving husband Chester Copeland, who shared a lifetime of love and laughter with her. Together they built a strong foundation of love that will endure beyond her physical presence. Tonya's daughters Hana Copeland, Chestina Copeland, and Alicia Danzey with spouses Chrisstasia Walter and Brandon Danzey were not just recipients of Tonya's boundless love but also bearers of her legacy.

Her parents Rosetta and Ozie Perkins raised her with steadfast values that guided her throughout life. Tonya shared an unbreakable bond with her sisters Mary-Jane Perkins and Pamela Perkins, as well as her brothers Michael and Sherrick. Together, they weaved a tapestry of love, respect, and support that will forever remain unbroken.

Tonya's adoration extended to her grandchildren London Danzey, Lyric Danzey, and Sophie Walter. She embraced them with open arms and showered them with unconditional love. Tonya treasured their presence in her life and leaves behind a wealth of cherished memories for them to hold dear.

Tonya's nurturing spirit extended beyond her immediate family, as she often acted as a guiding light to her nieces Dulcinea Maposa, Taylor, Rachel, Roselyn, April and many more great nieces. Her impact was not limited there; she also played a significant role in the lives of her nephews Mario Perkins, Jocci Perkins, Eugene Ross, Torrance Joseph, David Wheeler, Johnny and many more great nephews. Her kindness knew no bounds.

Many friends were blessed to have Tonya's unwavering companionship throughout the years. Like stars scattered across the night sky, they brought light to her life and brought joy to every moment shared. Tonya's departure leaves an immense void in their lives but also countless stories of love and laughter that will be cherished forever.
