Dec. 18. 1931-March 8, 2024

Alene Rose Tanner, daughter of Albert and LaVera Rose, passed away peacefully on March 8, 2024, at the age of 92, in St.  George, Utah.  She was born in Lake Shore, Utah, on Dec. 18, 1931. She was the eighth of 12 children. She attended school in Lake Shore and  Spanish Fork. She also loved attending the Rose Reunion every summer. 

Alene was the supportive rock of our family, always there with open arms and a listening ear. She is survived by her children Denis Tanner, Steven Tanner and Kathleen Hoyt, who will forever hold her close in their hearts. As we mourn our loss, we also celebrate the incredible life she led and the countless ways she touched our hearts. 

Alene met and married her sweetheart Delos A. Tanner in the Manti LDS Temple on Sept. 21, 1949. They had a wonderful life together for 72 years when Delos passed away in 2022. 

Delos and Alene had four children: Denis, Steven, Kathleen and Carrie Lee (deceased as an infant). They have 10 grandchildren: Kris Tanner, Kory Tanner, Ryan Sass; Michele Gibson, Joseph Tanner, Missy Lambert, Molly Ingram, Marcie Falkner; Kal Hoyt and Karalee Turpin. They also have 31 great-grandkids and 13 great-great-grandkids. Her family was her greatest blessing. 

Alene had a creative knack and flair; she loved crocheting, quilting, sewing, cooking and making things beautiful. She made baby quilts for all of her kids, grandkids, great-grandkids and great-great-grandkids. Alene was a very thoughtful and selfless person who was always ready to help and support her family and friends at a moment’s notice. 

Alene was a faithful member of the LDS Church. She touched the lives of many throughout her many years of callings and service. She was always a very genuine and compassionate person whose kindness and love could easily be felt. 

Alene worked for Forseys in Payson for many years and she also ran the fabric department at the Ben Franklin store, in Nephi, for 10 years where she made many friends. 

She had such fun times with her friends and cousins, in Lake Shore, they called themselves “The Dirty Dozen.”

Alene is preceded in death by her husband Delos Tanner, daughter Carrie Lee, her parents Albert and  LaVera and siblings Lawrence, Beth, Burt, Blair, Ellen, Ray, Velma, Dee, El Louise, Don and Dale. 

A funeral service for Alene is being held on Thursday, March 14,  at The Walker Funeral Home, 587 S. 100 W. Payson, Utah, at 11 a.m. Visitation will be from 9:30-10:30 a.m. Interment is at the Payson Cemetery, 400 North 800 East, Payson, Utah.
