Mostly cloudy

Tanya Nicole “T.J.” Harshberger

Harshbarger_TanyaTanya Nicole “T.J.” Harshberger, 30, after many years of suffering, God called our precious angel home to be with Him Monday, April 7, 2014. Tanya was born August 28, 1983 in Cleveland.

She graduated from Parma Senior High in 2001. She enjoyed archery and shooting sports. Her favorite past time was making everyone dream catchers. Tanya had a passion for music and singing, performing in the Parma Senior Choir. With an appetite for life, Tanya traveled to many states, living life to the fullest. Her greatest passion, however, was her son, James. She loved him with all that she was and all she had to give. Though Tanya suffered greatly, she had the heart of an angel, always ready and willing, whenever someone called on her.

Tanya is preceded in death by daughter, Shelby; beloved father, David Harshberger; and grandfather, George Harshberger.

She is survived by her cherished son, James Goodman, Jr.; loving mother, Kathie Taylor (Kovalcin, Harshberger); stepfather, Ernest Taylor, Jr; devoted sister, Tammy Lough (Jerry); beloved brother, Matthew Taylor (her little baduka); loving sister, Kisha Radcliff; brother, Ernie Taylor III; and devoted grandparents, Michael and Dorothy Kovalcin; and Joan Collins (Harshberger). Tanya was a devoted aunt to many nieces and nephews, and a cherished friend to many. Though she is gone from our eyes, she lives on in our hearts. Tanya will be deeply missed by many.

A bright, shining star taken from us far too soon, but we know she is in Heaven, watching over us, and waiting for us with open arms, until we meet again.

Funeral Service will be held at 11 A.M., Saturday, April 12, 2014, at Key to My Father’s House Church, 1825 Reimer Rd., Wadsworth 44281. The family will receive friends Friday, April 11, 2014, from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 P.M., at Cox Funeral Home, 1376 High Street, Wadsworth 44281.
