Obituary for Tanya Rene Gass-Taylor

Tanya Rene Gass-Taylor, 58, passed away peacefully in her sleep at a private care home in New Braunfels, Texas on Friday, August 9, 2019 into the arms of her Lord and Savior.

Tanya was born on January 24, 1961 in Texas City and spent most of her life in Galveston County impressing joy and laughter into the lives of those whom she touched. She had a beautiful heart of gold and an uncanny ability to make every person she met feel like family instantly. She loved God and praised him even in her darkest of times and brought many people she knew, and loved, to know the Lord.

She is preceded in death by her husband Robert Anthony “Toby” Taylor, her mother Erma Gass, her father Kenneth Gass, her sister Pamela Gass, her niece Courtney Gass, and her nephews Robert Hicks and Calan Gass. She is survived by her beloved children, Shelby Taylor, Khalil Albakri & Amanda Thompson, Jaree & Bruce Fortin, her precious grandchildren, Summer Hefner, Charlie Hefner, and Kylah Albakri, her loving brothers Robert “Bobby” Gass and Dale & Kristi Gass, and numerous nieces and nephews whom she loved dearly.

A private family service will be held on August 25th, 2019 to honor her memory at Valiant Church, 2002 Postoffice, in Galveston.
