I’m so sorry to hear of Tanya’s death. She and I were friends while we both worked at Prudential Properties Plus, but we lost touch when I moved. I credit her for giving me the travel bug – she and I went to New Orleans and San Francisco together and it opened my eyes to all the possible adventures out there! I still have our Alcatraz photo on my refrigerator and it makes me smile whenever I look at it – she’s doing her best impression of a prison thug. Shannon, in my memory you’re still 8-years-old, but I realize you must be a young woman now. As I’m sure you know, you were the love of your mother's life - her eyes always twinkled when she spoke about you. To you, and her sisters and mother, I hope all the good memories can bring you some peace at this time. I found myself nodding and smiling at all the postings below comparing Tanya to a Viking or warrior – that’s how I’ll always remember her as well. Rest in peace, Tanya.

I am so sad to hear of Tanya's passing. It was a great shock. She was so young, too young to pass away, she had so much life left to live.

My heart goes out to her familia and friends, especially her mother, and her two sisters. A child is not meant to pass before their mother. My heart breaks for all of you.

Only time will heal this wound. Please know that you are in our thoughts.

My deepest condolences to Tanya's family and friends. Such sad news that I heard today. Tanya and I were close friends in High School. Tanya made it so much more fun and bearable! One of my fondest memories was attending Bruce Springsteen's 'Born In The USA' concert with her. We had so much fun!! We lost touch as adults, but would run into each other now and then and chat. I'll always remember her larger than life personality, go get 'em attitude and amazing laugh. I cherish my memories of our times together and hope that your memories of this fantastic lady will bring you comfort and love always.

SHANNON,

I will always remember your Mom walking you to school across Kingston Road and holding your hand when you were little. Tanya worked at the front desk at Prudential Properties Plus and would keep us all laughing with her jokes and just her laugh was enough to keep us all laughing. She was one of the best workers there and we missed her when she left for Re/Max. I will remember her devotion to you and her love for you. Big hugs to you Shannon ❤️
Blessings

A fierce and independent woman, gone too soon. Tanya ran the show and was the most capable, confident person in the office. My Dad would always say Tanya's" rockin and rollin", getting things done for the business, "so get out of her way" because she was always taking care of the team. Never afraid to challenge, and she would challenge, because she was 100% committed; just like she was to her beautiful Shannon of whom she was so proud. When she had an opportunity to expand professionally, we missed her madly but we were excited for her and her new venture because that was Tanya...brave and courageous.

My dearest Shanberry,
I am sorry for your loss. We never did get that chance to meet your Mama Bear, but from all stories I know we would have been very good friend's. I know how much you love and cherished your Mum and your time together. Your Mum will always be with you and will be your guiding light forever.
My sympathies to all her loved ones. I hope that you will find strength to deal with your great loss and find comfort in the many memories you created together.

Tanya I know we never met and I wish we had but I promise to always be here for your beloved Daughter Shannon! Shanberry has become a very big part of our family here in Peterborough over the last 2 years or more. I want you to know she will never be alone I will always have her back. I have come to love her as if she is my own. Sending so many hugs and so much love to you Shannon.
Dawn,

My condolences go out to Tanya’s family. I’m so sorry for your loss. Tanya and I met at University and have been besties for over 25 years. She was one of my go to girls for sharing all of our triumphs and troubles together. We have so many memories together like traveling to Ireland and England and just hanging out talking for hours about life. She loved her family, always spoke so highly of her daughter and how proud she was of what a wonderful young woman she has become. I will miss her dearly, she was a bright light in my life. RIP my friend.

I am so sorry and shocked to hear of Tanya's passing. A great light of the world has been extinguished.
I remember hiring Tanya to replace me (14 years ago!). What a laugh we had afterwards. Someone had told me she was looking for a job. She knew she hadn't sent me her resume and so she grilled me at the time with so many questions about how I knew she was looking for a job? Who was I ? Why did I think she'd be a good mix? It was the craziest of calls. I was a little terrified but knew she was just the person we needed and that she would protect us all. She was the best. Always taking care of us, making sure we had what we needed and laughing all the way through our crazy days.
Like Catherine, I remember the presents. She always did more than she had to - such thoughtful gifts.
I'm so sorry for your loss Shannon. Your Mom was a special lady. My thoughts and condolences go out to you and your family.

That smile, followed by that laugh and then that never ending joyful energy. These are the memories I will use to fill the hole she’s left. Jen and the rest of the family, I hope your memories keep her near, help you heal and spread her cheer!
