“In memory of you"

If we could visit heaven even for a day, maybe for a moment, the pain would go away. I’d put my arms around you and whisper words so true. That living life without you, is the hardest thing to do. No matter how we spend our days, no matter what we do no mourning, dawns or evening falls when we don’t think of you.”

“Tauanna was a amazing woman and mother she did whatever she could for anyone and everyone, no matter what it was. She was the strongest person I knew and I always could count on her. She had a smile that would light up a room. She was beautiful, funny, sweet and intelligent. Words could never describe how much she meant to me. She was the glue that held us all together. She will truly be missed.” - Shajaunna Thompson

“Tauanna was something I’m sure everyone asks for, she was my mother, my best friend, my rock, my Wonder Woman. She will forever be missed, we all loved her dearly and still do.” -Marquze Thompson

“Tauanna has shaped me into the person I am today and while I am still growing and becoming who she always hoped that would be I only wish to make her proud. She has stood by me with every choice I have made, even if she didn’t agree, and loved me through them. So I just say “rest now pretty lady, and be at peace.”- VaShaunta Thompson

A "Celebration of Tauanna's Life" will be held at 3:00 pm on Sunday, April 25, 2021 in the chapel of Kirksey Funeral Home. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service at the funeral home.

Tuanna and I raised our kids together and grew our faith together. She was always the come kid. I love her for that. She always found her way back up. We could always find a reason to laugh.

Tauanna and I were friends for more than twenty years. We met at work, at Sprint PCS, and we worked together at Centurylink. I’m very thankful to have known her.
