She lived in Sioux Center and recently finished first grade at Kinsey Elementary School. Mya will be remembered as a radiant and joyful little girl who was full of sunshine. She enjoyed attending A.W.A.N.A., reading chapter books, swimming and anything to do with horses. She loved music, dancing and keeping her hands busy with crafts, puzzles, board games, Barbies and her American Girl doll, Scarlett. Mya adored spending time with her friends, relaxing in the hammock, fishing with her Papa Honermann and riding and driving the boats. Her greatest joys were being a big sister, playing school with her sissy and reading her devotional before bedtime.
