Tona Lea Court, 72, of Moberly, passed away at the University of Missouri Hospital in Columbia, MO on January 6, 2018.

Tona was born to Howard Thornburg and Lura Wanda Cupp Thornburg in Moberly, MO on June 21, 1945.  She attended Terrill School, Moberly Public Schools and Moberly Area Community College before earning her Bachelor’s Degree, in accounting, from Truman University in Kirksville.   On February 25, 1966 she was united in marriage to Dan Court and he survives of the home.  Tona was a member of Central Christian Church in Moberly.  She and Dan were active members of the Moberly Historical Society and Tona assisted Judy Orton in putting together Moberly’s Sesquicentennial book.  In her spare time, she enjoyed reading and keeping in touch with family and friends through the internet.  The class of 1962 will surely miss her, as she was their class reunion planner.
