Tanya Staring

December 5, 1963 — November 11, 2023

McLoud resident, Tanya Staring, age 60, sadly left us on November 11th, 2023, after her 3-year-long battle with cancer.

Tanya was born to William and Louise (Owens) Dority, December 5, 1963, in Ft. Smith, Arkansas.  On April 5, 2012, she married Roger Staring, in Las Vegas.  Tanya’s favorite pastimes included sewing, gardening with her husband, swimming and watching her soaps, but nothing was as important to her as spending time with her family and friends.

In death she was reunited with her two sons Eddie and BJ, along with her father Frank, her grandmother Mary and her aunt Minnie. She was so full of life and if you got to know her, you loved her, and if she loved you, you knew it.

She leaves behind her husband Roger, daughter Pamela, seven grandchildren Michael, Kayla, Justin, William, Hattie, Cary, and Kermit. She also had 6 great grandchildren, Simon, Beverly, Eddie, Maverick, T'Marie, and Tobi. Also, her mother Louise, along with her siblings Kenny, Albert, Wayne, Randy, Sheila, Janice, and Carl. She also had several children that she adopted over the years and they are Chris, Lindsay, Chelsey, Melissa, Michael, and Andy.

She was the rock of her family and always knew what to say or how to fix the problem. She was the best mother, wife and sister someone could ever ask for.

A graveside service will be Monday, November 20, 2023, at 2:00, at Vamoosa Cemetery, with Kevin Merriman officiating.  Services are under the direction of Swearingen Funeral Home in Seminole.
