Tanya was naturally sweet, beautiful, and big hearted. She had a great sense of humor. All who knew her remember her kind smile, her big beautiful blue eyes, and genuine laughter. She loved life, enjoying simple things. Tanya loved baking cookies and drinking a good cup of coffee. She loved the outdoors, rainy days and thunderstorms. She loved to travel and explore. Tanya expressed herself artistically drawing and making collages. She was athletic and strong. She was so proud to learn karate. Her hobbies included running, horseback riding, and bicycling. Tanya loved her family and friends.

If Tanya knew you, she understood how you thought and ultimately who you were. Tanya had a fire inside of her that made her immune to fear. If she felt something needed to be said, it was always said.

Tanya was a proud alumni of Burlington High School. She graduated as the class of 2008. After high school she studied to be a Certified Nursing Assistant at Gateway Technical Institute in Burlington, WI. Tanya was a compassionate caregiver to children, the disabled, and the elderly. She aspired to own and operate a business some day. Tanya would have been great at that.

Tanya leaves behind siblings... Diana Klassen, Michelle Klassen, Nathan Klassen, and Shawn Kessel
Parents... Kathleen (Mom) and Charley Ross; Marv (Dad) and Sandy Klassen
Grandparents...Myrtle Penne Kessel (Grandma), Kenneth (Grandpa) and Sandy Kessel
and countless more friends and family.

Tanya was and will forever more be very much loved. She is now at peace. We love you Tanya-Banya.

A memorial service will be held on September 28th at 1pm, in the Ora Rice Arboretum, on Terrace St, in Delevan, WI. Please join us there and afterwards at the Ross/Kessel residence so that we can celebrate Tanya and share our memories. The Ross/Kessel residence is W5205 Wandawega Drive, Elkhorn, WI 53121.
