Tonya Marie Riner

December 6, 1961 — February 20, 2024


In loving memory of Tonya Marie Riner:

With heavy hearts, we say goodbye to a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, and friend. Tonya Marie Riner, born in Little Rock, Arkansas on December 6th, 1961, passed away on February 20th, 2024.

Throughout her life, Tonya dedicated herself as a warranty clerk at Landers Auto. Her commitment and hard work were evident as she served in this role for many years. Despite her professional responsibilities, Tonya's true joy came from her role as the world's greatest "Grammie." She cheered on her grandchildren with unwavering support, whether they were shining in competitive cheerleading or playing in their ballgames.

Tonya's vibrant personality was a light that touched everyone she met. An extrovert at heart, she had a gift for connecting with others and making them feel special. She cherished every moment spent with family and friends, relishing in their company and creating lasting memories.

In her leisure time, Tonya indulged in her love for animals of all kinds.  Her compassion for creatures knew no bounds. Additionally, she enjoyed shopping sprees that often ended with treasures for her beloved grandchildren.

Tonya was preceded in death by her mother Semmie Crawford; and step-mother Justine Kearney;

Tonya will be dearly missed by her husband of 42 years, Allan Riner of Benton, Arkansas; her daughters: Allisha Clement (Brian) and Jessica Alderson (Michael "Drew"), both residing in Benton; her cherished grandchildren: Weston and Willow Clement; father Patrick Kearney Sr.; brother Patrick Kearney Jr.; as well as numerous other family members and friends.

Family will hold a private memorial service.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to American Diabetes Association at or to your local humane society in honor of Tonya Riner.

As we bid farewell to Tonya Marie Riner, we find solace in knowing that her spirit will live on in the hearts of all who had the privilege of knowing her. May her kindness and love continue to inspire us all.
