Tonnya Dawn Shane-Anders

Tonnya Dawn Shane-Anders, 42, of West Richland was born January 19, 1964 in Tacoma, WA and passed away July 28, 2006 in Seattle, WA.  She was a housing inspector.

As a child, Tonnya was raised out in the country where she raised horses and cats.  Tonnya was very active in church and loved going to Sunday School.  She was also active in 4-H and traveled to many states entering her horse in shows.

As Tonnya grew up, she continued her loved for horses and animals in general.  She was always willing to take animals in and care for them till they were able to leave on their own.  Her favorite times were getting on her horse and riding the country side either by herself or with family.

Tonnya graduated from Richland High School in 1982 and became a parent to her daughter shortly after in 1983.  As a parent her hardest struggle was being single.  However, Tonnya took the challenge and overcame.  Her love for decorating and cooking kept her spirits high but sometimes frightened her children.  Tonya became a proud parent to her 2nd child, a beautiful boy, in December of 1987.

Her greatest times were when we went camping as a family.  She also found peace in gardening and planting.  Where there was dirt, she could plant a flower.

Before she went, Tonnya was able to enjoy one more addition to the family that brought her great joy, a grandson, Alexander, born in December 2003.

Tonnya was also able to find her way back to God before passing and became active in her local church activities and loved helping the kids in Sunday School.

Tonnya leaves her two children, Amber and Cody; parents, Bill and Bea Shane, Barb Huskinson; and a sister, Talley, who loved and will miss her very much.

Memorial services will be at 2:00 p.m. Wednesday, August 2, 2006, at Einan’s Funeral Home.

  • Bill,Bea,Barbara,Amber,Cody and Talley-

    I am so sorry for the loss of your daughter,mother and sister. Tonnya was one of my very best friends beginning in early highschool. My family and I remember her kindess and gentleness in everything she did. I have been thinking alot about all of the memories I have with her….driving around in her cool truck, painting my bedroom bright canary yellow, the mickey mouse hat she wore at graduation,her pet skunk she would often bring over and just hanging out together. She loved her sister Talley and thought she was the “coolest”. I remember going out to Benton City to hang out with Talley and her cool friends.

    Tonnya was my maid of honor in my little wedding 20 years ago.

    Throughout these later years Tonnya would give me a call now and then or I would run into to her. She phoned me once so upset when Bea Bea had cancer….she was thoughtful and had a heart of gold. I also ran into on the basketball court, she was coaching Cody. Not many mom’s would take that on but it didnt surprise me a bit, that was Tonnya. She was never afraid to do the unordinary and she was a free spirit. I last ran into her at Hair Masters a few months back. She was there getting Cody’s hair cut. We talked for along time and then she phoned me shortly after. Even though we were both busy working and raising kids it seemed we always picked right up again when we crossed paths. Once Tonnya’s friend, always Tonnya’s friend. As I told Amber on the phone a few days ago, she was so proud of her and Cody. She glowed when she told me of her new grandson. I am so sorry that you have to go on without her but I know she is with her maker now, peaceful and without sickness and pain. Rest in Peace Ton, thankyou for being my good friend.

  • Amber and Cody, I was deeply saddened to learn about the loss of your mom. My heart goes out to you and your family.

    After your mom and I were no longer working together at the Richland Housing Authority, I would often run into her around town and she would beam with pride as she would bring me up-to-date on how you two were doing. I have many fun memories of your mom and having been reflecting on them.

    Tonnya, I’ll remember you always. God Bless.
