Tanya Fay Johnson
Tanya Fay Johnson, 71 of Fairview OR, passed away on April 25, 2022. She was born on April 4, 1951 in Salem, Oregon to Leroy and Florence Leighan and graduated from David Douglas High School in 1969. Tanya married Stephen Johnson on June 13, 1975 in Vancouver, Washington. Tanya Fay literally means "Fairy Queen Fairy". She was devoted to her family and always saw the positive side of things. Even through hardship she was a giver not a taker, always lived in the moment and was the president of the Be Thankful-Be Grateful Group. Tanya enjoyed time in the outdoors fishing and camping, trips to the mountain and the Oregon Coast with Seaside being her favorite. Tanya loved carnations, knitting shawls and blankets for donation, and loved all genres of music with Muse, The Killers and Green Day being among her favorites. Tanya is survived by her husband of 47 years Stephen Johnson; daughters Julia Phillips and Twillia Lundin; son Carl Bork; sister Margaret Cobb and grandchildren Theo, Trent, Tanner, Shaily and Trista. She was preceded in death by her son Stephen Leroy Johnson. A private family gathering will take place at a later time. Memorial contributions can be made to the Portland American Cancer Society at cancer.org as donations in Tanya's name.
