October 14, 1999 ~ September 19, 2010

"She was our angel here on earth, she touched so many lives
with her love and words of encouragement."

Sophia Gail Tanninen, 10 years and 11 months old, life-long resident of Battle Ground, WA, died Sept. 19, 2010. She got her wish to go to her heavenly home and will be missed so much by all who loved her. She was born Oct. 14, 1999 in Vancouver, WA.

Sophia was such a big help to her mother who loved her more than life itself. She loved coloring, organizing, garage sales, scrapbooking, reading and listening to books on tape. She loved going places with aunts and grammas.

She is survived by her parents, Barry and Cindy; sisters, Krista Jeanette, Elizabeth Eleanore, Joanna Florence; brothers, Marty Joe, Barry Todd Jr., and Troy Peter; grandparents (the late paternal grandpa, Henry Tanninen), Jeanette and Dale Brucklemeyer and Peter and Gail Tapani; many cousins, aunts and uncles.

Sophia was preceded in death by her brother, Todd Henry; and grandpa, Henry Tanninen.

Funeral services will be Thurs., Sept. 23, 2010 at 3:00 p.m. at Old Apostolic Lutheran Church (where she was a life-long member) at 16603 NE 142nd Ave., Brush Prairie, WA. Viewing will be on Wed., Sept. 22 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the church.
