Tony Rebecca Hoyt Pendleton

April 26, 1976 ~ March 30, 2024

Tony Rebecca Hoyt Pendleton was born April 26, 1976 in Baton Rouge, LA. She was the youngest child born to Bettiva Gail Young and the late Michael Wilson Hoyt Sr.

Although she was the youngest child, she was always with her siblings. Many thought she and Michael were twins as they were exactly one year apart and shared the same birthday.

She was an exceptional cook, and she never failed to bring a smile and laughs when they shared many meals together. She loved the holidays because it brought the family by, but also because she loved to decorate. Her selfless heart always ensured a safe place to land and warm meal.  She was intelligent, a problem solver, and self-taught in many things.

She is best remembered as a daughter, mother, dutiful wife, and diligent grandmother and will be dearly missed by all who knew her.

She was welcomed into Heaven on Saturday, March 30, 2024 by her father, Michael Wilson Hoyt Sr.; one brother, Michale Wilson Hoyt Jr.; maternal and paternal grandparents; and six uncles.

Those left to cherish her memory; her beloved husband of twenty years, Donald Dean Pendleton; one son, Sabastian (Tamra) Hoyt; grandchildren, Shelby, Coby, Michael, Killian; mother, Bettiva G. Young; sister, Shyndell (Noah) Miller; children she loved as her own, Todd King, Dakota Strother, Steven & Jacob Manuel, Joyce Manuel, Dusty Manuel; close friend, Tommy Woodcock, Jackie Manuel, Jennifer Keith, & the MM&Z; and her beloved pets Bailey, Hathor, & Honey Boo Boo.
