Tonya Ann Ennis passed away unexpectedly with family by her side on December 20, 2021. She was raised in Glen Mills, PA, and went to Bishop Shanahan High School in West Chester, PA. She resided in Thornton, PA, on her lily pad with her Partner Jim "Frog" O'Brien.

Tonya was a hairdresser at Salon Allure and owned and operated her own Mobile Hairdressing Business where she made hundreds and hundreds of friendships and a lifetime of memories. She was not just a hairdesser with her clients, they more like family. Tonya was an outstanding caregiver to so so many people. She liked to travel the world by foot and proved that with many Fitbit Awards. You rarely would see Tonya just relaxing; she was always on the go. Tonya loved her Zumba, the beach, her girl's weekends, her grand-dogs, and just living life to the fullest.  Tonya always lit up a room with her infectious smile and pearly white teeth, her personality, and her overall joy for life!

Survivors: her daughter Amanda Ennis and her husband Gregg Sullender. Amanda was Tonya's friend to the end.  Her longtime partner James (Frog) O'Brien, her father James R. Ennis, and was predeceased by her mother, Barbara Ennis. Her brothers James J (Linda) Ennis, Mark (Janet) Ennis and her sister Nadine (Thomas) Garrow.  She is also survived by many Nieces and Nephews, Cousins, and friends. We would love to mention them all, but the list would never end. Tonya will be missed by all but never forgotten.

Visitation will be Friday, January 14, 2022 from 6 - 9 PM at Nolan-Fidale Funeral Home, 5980 Chichester, PA 19014. There will also be a visitation at St. Thomas the Apostle Church, 430 Valleybrook Road, Glen Mills on Saturday, January 15,2022 from 9:30-10:30 AM, with a Funeral Mass following at 11:00 AM.

My heart goes out to the Ennis family and to all that knew Tonya. I'm sure the memories of this delightful and funny woman will make you smile, even in this dark and terrible time. She had such positive contagious energy and I know she will be so very missed. I'm sorry that I cannot attend her visitation, but please know that my heart is with you all. She truly made her mark. Peace and Love, Jeneane

Tonya was one of the nicest and most sincere person I ever met. When she entered a room, the sunshine arrived. She was amazingly proficient at her job and loved by all. She was charming, smart, helpful OVERLY kind and thoughtful. There are not enough adjectives to describe her - she was MORE than perfect ! She shall be sorely missed by all those who ever had any contact with her!

Amanda and family I am so sorry for your loss. I used to work with tonya and what I remember most besides her smile and talking about Amanda was she never bad mouthed anyone and that’s quite an accomplishment when you’re working with 15 girls. Tonya was a sweetheart and will truly be missed
