Tonya Elizabeth Burek Dubeansky – 31, entered the kingdom of heaven on February 20, 2015 at Calvary Hospital in Bronx, NY, surrounded by her family, music, and love.
Loving wife of Brandon M Dubeansky and devoted mother to Stella E Dubeansky, Tonya is the daughter of Timothy and Susan (Maggs) Burek of Huntersville, NC and brother to Steven T Burek of North Tonawanda, NY.
Born in Rochester, NY on June 30, 1983, Tonya graduated from Spencerport High School in 2001 and went on to earn her Bachelors degree in Music Education from Baldwin Wallace College and Masters degree in Music Education from Hofstra University. Tonya demonstrated her passion of sharing music with children for almost 10 years as a music teacher at Park Ave Elementary school in Westbury, NY. She was active in the Long Island Chapter of the American Orff- Schulwerk Association (LIAOSA), Baldwin Wallace Alumni Association and Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church Family Ministries.
Tonya is also survived by her grandmother Joyce Hatch Maggs of Eden, NY, in-laws Suzanne and Edward Dubeansky, Korene (Michael) Engelking of Mentor, OH, nieces Clara and Arianna Engelking, many loving aunts, uncles, cousins and numerous dear friends.
