In all our years of working together Tanya was the bright bursting ray of sunshine with a smile that almost made you loose consciousness.
And she was that way 24/7/365.
One summer weekend my son and I joined Tanya and her family at the "River".
We brought our kayaks and they had jet skis of which we had never experienced.
As soon as we arrived Tanya took my son on a wonderful wild ride.
It was a most memorable adventure we have never forgotten.
Our condolences to Tanya's Family, this universe has lost one of its brightest stars.

Tanya was such a funny and kindhearted person. At one time she was my manager when we worked at NAPA years ago. Tanya took me under wing and taught many thing in accounting and customer service. Over time we became good friends. Many laughs and stories she shared with me about her past. Her heart was so loving she was an amazing person . I’m glad I was able to chat with her a few days ago. Little did I know it would be our last conversation. She is now at peace and is no longer suffering. Tanya will be missed . My condolences to Rob and Cole and her parents and everyone who had the privilege to know Tanya.

Tanya made life fun and I will always cherish every memory we shared. Her spirit and love of life will live on in my heart. My favorite memory of her out of many, was going to see Alan Jackson with her and dancing the entire time in the front of the arena, making our way up to the front of the stage, feeling years younger than I had a right to be. She was one of the strongest, most vivacious women I will ever have the pleasure of knowing.
