Obituary of Vanessa Ann Tylka

Vanessa Ann Yauger Tylka, age 67 of Mount Pleasant, died unexpectedly Sunday, November 29, 2020. Mrs. Tylka was born April 17, 1953 in Connellsville, PA, the daughter of the late Donald and Mary Rayoni Yauger of Connellsville. She was an active member of St. Pius X Roman Catholic Church in Mount Pleasant. Vanessa was a 1971 graduate of Connellsville High School. She married her husband Tom on September 30, 1978. Shortly after, they settled in Mount Pleasant. Vanessa was one of the sweetest people on earth. She was known for her pleasant personality and positive demeanor. She loved being a homemaker; cooking, baking and celebrating the Holidays. She was especially proud of her Italian heritage and happy when she left us with her home decorated for Christmas. Vanessa is survived by her beloved husband of 42 years, Thomas Tylka, by her cherished sister, Jacqueline (Jackie Yauger) Johnson and her husband, Larry of Connellsville and she will be sorely missed by her loving dog, Bailey. She is also survived by her dear sisters-in-law, Kathy Mizikar and her husband, David of Mammoth and Joann Parks of Simpsonville, KY, her aunts, Sue Geran and Helen Gebadlo of Pittsburgh, her uncle, Ben Rayoni of Uniontown, her best friend of 55 years, Mary Kay Andrews of Latrobe and many cousins and friends who loved her. In addition to her parents, Vanessa was preceded in death by her infant brother, Keith. It is with great sadness that we announce her passing. May she rest in Peace.
