I would like to take the time to introduce myself; My name is Ashley Tanasiuk, I am Chris Tanasiuks daughter, and I am 1 of 4 grandchildren.

It’s been 6 days since you’ve passed, and every hour that goes by it gets harder and harder to accept. I love you so much grandma; they say that no person can be perfect, but in my eyes you truly were ! You were the most classy, pure and genuine woman. It’s hard to think that I’m never going to get to see you again. It’s hard to think that I’m never going to get to hug you again and rest my head on your lap. You taught me so much in this life, and I am so blessed to have been able to call you my grandmother. I will never forget how you taught me to ride a bike. I will never forget every second weekend I got to spend with you growing up, and I will never forget those times where I would cry on your shoulder and you would tell me that everything is gunna be okay. I love you so much grandma and it kills me to have to say goodbye. I inherited so many traits from you that I am so blessed to have gotten. It’s sad to think that you will never be able to see me get married or have children someday. I saw you at thanksgiving and you seemed fine. It’s crazy to think how fast things can just go down hill. You will always be my hero ! I wish that one day I can grow up to be such a wonderful and selfless person like yourself. You were a legend and as long as I live I will always look up too you. Rest in peace; grandma you will forever be in my heart, I love you <3

Momma Tanasiuk would pile so many kids in her little car after a 4-H meeting, we’d all be laughing and scrunched in her little car. Momma T would deliver us all to our homes safely. She was always fun loving to all the kids that hung out on the Tanasiuk homestead!



Hear our cries
But don’t let them stop you
From your journey
To a place where pain does not exist
And external happiness is yours,

Our shedding of tears is our way
Of telling you we love you and that
We’ll always remember you.
You are dear to us
For you were always there
When we needed you.

There was much that was left unsaid.
Hear our Prayers
We realize it is your time to join
Your loved one
Our Father
Mom, may you rest in peace
Though it will be hard to let go
Whey they lower you down into mother earth.

We do not mean for you to stay where
Life was full of physical pain for you.
May the angels of heaven take you
By the hand
And walk you through the golden gates.
