To Tonya Behlers-Breitkreutz family, I am very sorry to hear about the passing of Tonya, she has endured many illnesses over the years. I prefer to remember her when her mother visited my grandmother and we would play together while the laides visited. Also her time as she was involved in the Eastern Star organization. My thoughts are with you as you all move forward without her, she will live in your hearts and memories. Melanie Glaubius Vance

I first met Tonya as a parent to one of my students at Pilger Elementary. She was a supportive parent and someone who was easy to work with. I was fortunate to have both Eric and Katie as students. Eventually I taught her grandchildren. Later , Tonya babysat my daughter Jess when she was a toddler. If I needed a drop in sitter , Tonya never turned me down. I always enjoyed her smile and dry sense of humor. Her family has so many good memories to hopefully comfort them in the days and weeks to come. My sympathy to them all . Karen Johnson
