Tanya Lynn Taylor Downs peacefully passed away Aug. 28 with loved ones by her side. She was born July 11, 1983, in Preston, Idaho, to Darren Taylor and Kim Bellman Taylor. She graduated from Sky View High School. On Aug. 10, Tanya joined Jake Downs, the love of her life, after an 11-year courtship.
Tanya received and gave unconditional love to friends and family. Tanya loved to go camping with grandpa Sherm and had a great love of the outdoors. She loved horses and was proud of her sister Brook and her way with horses. Tanya loved all animals. She had three dogs, Ziggy, Daisy and Stihl and had many pets growing up. Tanya loved spending time with her aunts, uncles and grandparents.
A special thanks to Chad and Wade and the University of Utah Medical staff who stood by her side during her lung transplant and a special thanks also to the wonderful hospice staff who helped her at the end. She is loved by all and will be dearly missed. She was a very brave person.
She is survived by Jake; her mother Kim Layne; father Darren Taylor; grandmother Charlene Taylor; sister Brook; and stepbrother Taylor. She was preceded in death by Grandpa Sherm and two other grandparents.
