Tana was born March 24, 1981, to Monte and Linda Larsen in Spokane, Wash.

In her early life she grew up in Kellogg, Idaho, then at a young age moved to Mountain Home.

Tana was an active child, involved in Brownies, dance and any opportunity to spend time at her grandparent's house helping her grandma where she could.

Tana graduated from Mountain Home High School in 1999.

During high school, Tana met her future husband, Evan. They knew very soon that they were each other's soulmates. They were married July 4, 1999.

Shortly after, the two bought their first home in Boise, with their two children - aka dogs Fauna and Kiercha. After Boise they moved to Florida, then Connecticut and then back to Florida.

Tana had a love for art and Egyptian archeology. Tana had a very free spirited personality. She loved dragging Evan and their dogs on adventures, from mountain climbing to cave exploring. Tana wanted to do it all. She also enjoyed traveling the east coast visiting American historical sites.
