Mareta Tokona Evans, age 83, of Uniontown, PA passed away at home with her loved ones by her side. She was born October 5, 1939, in Suva, Fiji to the late Ruben and Asilika Tokona.
Mareta attended school in Suva and after graduating she worked in a cigarette factory for 30 years. She later moved to the United States with her children and husband and was employed as a caregiver for 18 years. Mareta grew up Catholic for the majority of her life, then converted over to Christianity on April 3, 2022.
Mareta loved to experiment with baking and cooking and was always seeking new things to try. She enjoyed singing and dancing. She was a remarkable and loving woman who could light up any room. She treated everyone as equal no matter their age or who they were. She was very social and had a giving nature about her. She was an amazing and active grandmother who was happy to help with pickups and drop-offs at school. She showed her love through cooking and baking for her family, and was often surrounded by large numbers of family members in her home where she was always ready to greet them with open arms.
