Lyneille Tanner, 48 passed away peacefully on February 6, 2012. Born March 23, 1963, in Provo Utah to Verlene Winkel & Noel Tanner. Married and later divorced Brent Ross Christensen, together they had one child, Lacey Christensen Johns.

Lyneille was always the life of the party, one that you couldn't miss. Her passion for animals was unlike any other. With a personality bigger than life she had the ability to light up the room and bring a smile to everyone's face. All who knew her has a story to tell that won't be forgotten. Her love to help others is one of her many traits that will live on.
