In her teens the family moved to Red Deer and Tanja completed her secondary education at Camille J. Lerouge High School. She furthered her education in Red Deer by attending and graduating from Marvel Business college which lead to her securing a job in the professional office of a Podiatrist in Red Deer.

Shortly after settling in Calgary Tanja gave birth to their first child; this slide into motherhood had her explore School Bus Driving as a means to make some money while caring for her child. It became a labour of love that turned into a career that lasted almost 30 years during which she became the mother to 3 more children.

Tanja was a very unique individual who was graced with countless gifts and talents which shone threw in her stunning artwork and brilliant crafts. Tanja had a huge heart from which flowed an abundance of caring and love which she showered upon family, friends, neighbours, as well as members of her community.  Tanja will be remembered as a devote steward of divine fellowship who is loved and missed by all. "
