Tawna Thomas


“It’s a good day”

Tawna Thomas won her battle with cancer and peacefully ascended to heaven on Sunday, August 6, 2017, at the age of 50. She was surrounded by her loving family at home passing with a beautiful smile on her face.

Born August 7, 1966 to James Allen and Utahna Heap in Cedar City, Utah, she was the youngest of seven children. She was raised in Parowan graduating from Parowan High School in 1984.

Tawna met her soulmate, William R. Thomas, in 1985 and married on June 8th of that year. Together, they had three children and spent every moment camping, jeeping, and riding ATV’s. Her family was her whole world. On Dec. 10, 1989, they were sealed in the SLC Temple. Tawna worked for Dr. Julia C. Brogil at Wasatch Pediatrics as a Medical Assistant for over 21 years. She loved her job and coworkers, they were truly her extended family.

Tawna was later blessed to find love again with Lee P. Skyles and his three children. He stood by her every step of the way and was her rock. They enjoyed traveling and spending time with family. This was the best thing that could have happened to her.

She is survived by her three children: Jason R. (Kelsey E.), Corey L., and Zachary J. Thomas; granddaughter Dalyn L., companion and best friend Lee P. Skyles and his children: Lee P. (Katharine R.), Paul Barry (Mindy L.), and Holli L. Skyles. Preceded in death by her husband, William R. Thomas, her parents, one sister and one brother.

Funeral services will be held on Thursday, August 10, 2017, at 11 am, and a prior visitation from 9:30-10:45 am at the Erda LDS Chapel, 323 E Erda Way, Erda, UT 84074.  A viewing service will also be held Wednesday, August 9, 2017 from 6-8 pm at Tate Mortuary, 110 South Main, Tooele, UT 84074.
