I am deeply saddened by Tanya’s passing. I’ve been Tanya’s neighbor for 5 years now and she was always nice to my children and I. The “farm girl from new york” as she called herself was a wonderful mother and contributed to our community. I will miss watching her walk the kids to and from the bus stop everyday. My thoughts and prayers to her children and family in new york.

I had the privilege of getting to know Tanya during the final 2 months of her life in an online Bible study offered by her church, the Christian Life Center. She was a ray of sunshine and inspiration to our group...always encouraging and praying for others, offering thoughtful insights to the discussion, and remaining positive and hopeful in spite of her own struggles. We were stunned and saddened to learn of her death but heartened by the assurance she is now completely whole and enjoying fellowship with her Lord. Please know her CLC family is lifting up yours in prayer as you grieve the loss of our sweet friend.
