  1. Dorothy and Jeff I am so sorry for the passing of your sweet angel. I can’t even begin to tell you how heavy my heart is. Know that my love, thoughts, and prayers are with you. Prayers to Serenity and Chase.

  2. My deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Tanya. May your treasured memories bring you joy, and may the ‘God of all comfort’ give you strength and a measure of peace for your grieving hearts at this most difficult time. 2Cor 1:3

  3. When I learned of Tanya’s passing, I was struck with an overbearing deep sadness. I just kept saying no, no ,no!!! Not Tanya, she was such a ray of light. She’d put a smile on your face the instant you saw her, she didn’t even have to say anything. I have much more to share, however I’ll save that for a later date. My condolences, love, and prayers to the family and her children Serenity and Chase. May the spirit comfort you in these trying times. We have lost a great earthly sister and I hope she has found peace in the arms of our Savior! All my love Cheyenne Brown (Foster)

  4. I was deeply saddened when I heard of Tanya’s passing. We worked together in Elko. She was very bright, creative and caring. She was a hard worker, always lightened my day and I loved her sense of humor. She made me 2 beaded necklaces that I love and I will continue to wear in an even more treasured way.

  5. It is with a heavy heart that I hear of Tanya’s passing. She was an inspirational student that blessed my early years in the art room at Carlin Combined school and kept in touch with my wife and I in the years that followed. Tanya was very creative and insightful with the world around her. Her compassion and love for all creatures will be sorely missed. Christopher and Hadley Noren

  6. My wife, Laura and I are so, so sad about Tanya’s passing. I worked with her a little under the last two years. I got to know Tanya pretty well. She was an awesome creation of God’s and we are missing her dearly. Our heart, prayers, tears and thoughts go out to her family, especially to Serenity and Chase. God’s peace and blessings to all!
