Tonya Michelle Campbell Cobb, 47, of Stockbridge GA, passed away on Saturday, January 11, 2020. Visitation with the family will be held from 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm on Saturday, January 18, 2020 with a Celebration of Life service immediately following in the Fairview Chapel of Horis A. Ward. John Dewberry, chaplain of Bennett International will be officiating.

Tonya was born at South Fulton Hospital in Atlanta, GA to Joseph Edward Campbell, Sr. and Ruth Elisabeth Cothran Campbell on August 17, 1972. She attended school in Stockbridge, Georgia. Tonya was of the Christian faith.

Tonya was a dedicated and valuable employee of Bennett International for 11 years, serving as a logistics consultant, winning numerous awards for integrity and productivity.

Over 17 years ago, Tonya met Larry Earnest Cobb, Jr. “Earnie” while playing pool. She beat him of course, and they have been inseparable ever since. They were married in Sevierville, TN on November 5, 2005 and they have lived life to the fullest, having spent a significant portion of their time camping, playing in the woods, fishing (she always caught the biggest one), and playing with their dogs in the mountains. Wherever one was, the other was never more than a step away. Tonya and Earnie were only separated one time for three days due to a work commitment. Tonya was a fabulous cook who loved to experiment with new recipes for her and Earnie to try out and her squash casserole and Mexican corn bread were the most requested dishes at the many family meals we were all fortunate to share in. Tonya was an avid animal lover, always doting on their two dogs, Boone & Nia, their cats, Onyx and Winslow, their bird Arthur, and her chicken, Sweet Pea. Tonya was the embodiment of the word family and there were no boundaries to her love for those she held dear. Tonya was a loving, dutiful daughter, and sister, always seeking to lend a helping hand or advice to anyone who might need it. Tonya was charming, witty, and fiercely competitive. She could beat the socks off of anyone at corn hole and many hours were spent doing just that, especially her father in law. She was an extraordinary mother figure to her many nieces and nephews as well as their friends, serving as cheerleader, encourager, supporter, and often times, confidante. Tonya was the most non- judgmental soul and accepted everyone freely and without reservation. To know Tonya was to love her and she will leave a void in the hearts of those fortunate enough to have had her light shine on them.

Tonya is preceded in death by her father Joseph Edward Campbell, Sr., and her brother in law, Jason Daniel Cobb.

Tonya is survived by her loving husband, Larry Earnest Cobb, Jr., Mother, Ruth Campbell, siblings, Joseph Edward Campbell (Gretchen), Darien Campbell Golden (Robert), William Tate Campbell (Dana), and numerous nieces and nephews.

At the request of Tonya, she will be cremated, and the family would like to request that instead of traditional flowers, you consider a live plant.

I was saddened to hear of Tonya’s passing.Back in 2000 when I moved to Georgia I was looking for a job and I ran across an add that a company called cool cargo carriers was looking for drivers.At that time Tonya was the company gm. I picked up the phone called the number I was immediately connected to her line she told me to come in for an interview. I filled out the application right there and she hired me immediately.From that day forward she was always good to me.The day that she left the company she gave me a call and told me that she was leaving the company and thanked me for all that I had done when I thought that it should have been the other way around. I did thank her for giving me the opportunity to work with her.She was the best boss ever. I know that many are sad but,trust God to help get you through this difficult time.God bless you all and stay strong.

Tonya and I were real good friends in high school. We touch base with each other when i happened to her name associated with a company my employer did business with. It freaked us both out thinking what a same world. I really wish we stayed in contact, she was a great person and friend.

I worked with Beautiful Tonya at Bennett for about 5 years, mainly over the phone, but my first invite to the Bennett Symposium she was the first person to welcome me and show me around. Every year after that. Her famous words to me were "Girl are you coming, okay Im gonna come get you." She had the best smile and best Soul. I am so so heartbroken, in shock and just in such disbelief. She will FOREVER be in my heart and I will Forever be grateful to have met such an Amazing woman, and exactly how its said I never seen her without her husband they were meant for eachother. My prayers go out to the Whole family and may God put his healing hands on all her family left behind. TILL WE MEET AGAIN BEAUTIFUL... REAST IN PARADISE. MISS YOU & LOVE YOU.

I had the opportunity to work with, and get to know Tonya, for the past 2 years while employed at Bennett. She started out as my supervisor, and we became friends as well as co-workers, and I would have done anything in the world for her. She was a dynamic and strong leader in our department, as well as a very nice person.
I will miss her laughter, and her sweet personality, and her stories. She used to talk about her niece Jade, and Earnie, and her dogs, and her family every day. She will be sorely missed.

Tonya was my previous boss of 7 years, and a friend of almost 20. She was like a mother to me in many ways throughout the years. She was kind, ambitious, full of great compassion, and more full of life than most I know. I will forever cherish each memory we have together. Rest in peace Tonya, I greatly love and will miss you. It's not goodbye, just "see you later."
