Tanya Jeanne Robinett

Tanya Jeanne Robinett, beloved daughter, sister, aunt and friend passed away December  29,  2012 in Delta, Utah at age 57. Tanya started life as a foundling on the steps of a church in Denver, Colorado. She was adopted by Everett and Rowena Robinett at the age of six months. She and a younger brother spent a joyous childhood growing up in Dove Creek, Colorado.

Tanya graduated from San Juan High in Blanding, Utah. She chose to follow her mother’s example and became a teacher. She graduated from Western State College with a degree in Elementary Education. Tanya started her teaching career in La Sal, Utah and then found herself in Monticello, Utah; Montezuma Creek, Utah; Mancos, Colorado; Cortez, Colorado and finally in Delta, Utah where she taught twenty years of a 28 year career. She loved teaching 3rd graders.

Upon retirement she went back to Dove Creek and was able to spend the next four years being a daughter and companion to her mother. Being closer to her immediate family also brought her much pleasure.

Cancer became her enemy and after an eight week battle she finally succumbed.
