Tanya Macrae

May 3, 1969 – May 12, 2021
Our beautiful and beloved, Tanya Macrae, passed away peacefully surrounded by love on May 12, 2021, in Parksville, BC .
Tanya’s vibrant energy was admired and received by many. She continues to shine upon us all. Tanya will be remembered for her strength, courage and resilience; her class, her sass and feistiness.
She loved the sun, butterflies, socializing, brisk walks, endless adventures and making memories count with those whom she cherished. She was rarely on time but she was always dressed to impress with a beautiful smile and laugh that lit up every room she entered.
Tanya was born in Victoria, BC on May 3, 1969 where she spent the first 10 years of her life. In 1979 the family moved to Grand Cayman, where they lived for two years. They returned to Canada and settled in Errington, BC.
Tanya graduated from Ballenas Secondary School in 1987 and in 1990 she welcomed the birth of her first child, Devon. She began her working career at Evergreen Credit Union and worked at Thrifty Foods for a number of years. Her twin boys, Colton and Braydon, were born in 1999. Tanya continued her education at VIU and landed a position with the City of Parksville in 2009 which she thoroughly enjoyed.
Tanya is survived by: her Mom, Cathy; Dad, Jim (Sandy); Dad Tahouney; Sons, Devon and Braydon (Marie); Sisters, Jaime and Erin (Derek); nephews and niece, Jacob, Hayden and Makena; and many close and loving friends.
She was predeceased by: Mom Tahouney and precious son Colton.
A celebration of her life will be held for family and friends when we are able to celebrate her in style. Donations to Hospice or BC Cancer Agency in her memory greatly appreciated.
May we all find peace and joy with each butterfly that passes. Forever in our Hearts.
