I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER TONYA FROM A SHY AND QUIET FIVE YEAR OLD AT SUNNY DAY PLAY SCHOOL IN PRAIRIE DU CHIEN, TO HER YOUNG ADULTHOOD HERE IN PRAIRIE,SHE WAS ADORABLE AND SWEET AND I JUST LOVED HER SO MUCH. WE LOST CONTACT WHEN SHE LEFT PRAIRIE, BUT I WILL NEVER FORGET HER.
Tanya was a wonderful person and will be dearly missed. She was married to my nephew. I knew Tanya all of her life and have never met anybody sweeter than her. What a great outlook on life she always had. When she saw you coming her face would light up and you would have a nice conversation. I will dearly miss you
I worked along side with this lady. She will be missed by the nursing staff and the sisters.
Tanya, you are in God's hands. Blessings to you and pray for us!
Thinking of you all! Tanya's feisty spirit and no non sense way of life will certainly be missed. Only one that could half way talk some sense into Jaime! Hang in there and stay strong.
Rest easy! You are pain free! I know you will be with us on Saturday! You put up on heck of fight in a short time. You will be missed by many!
