Tanya Ann Uhrin Martinez passed away suddenly Aug. 2, 2012, from a brain aneurysm. She was 38.
Tanya was a loving and hardworking single mother, daughter, sister and fiancée. She is survived by her daughters, Keilanii Uhrin-Saffings, Alicia Martinez and Mariah Martinez; parents, John and Sonja Uhrin; sister, Tracie Uhrin; brother, Jason Uhrin; nephew, Kelly Uhrin-Gilmore; and fiance, Dontrell Blair.
She loved to live her life as much as she loved to brighten up everybody’s day with the smile she always kept on her face.
Tanya’s youngest daughter Mariah was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 11 and is now in remission for four years. They fought a tough battle together and never let go of faith. The family now still holds that faith in God’s hands and will continue to stay strong and will always have Tanya within them.
