March,12 1961 – December 26, 2022

Tanya G. Neeland went to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ after a grueling six-year battle with ALS. She suffered through every trial and experiment available knowing the lessons learned would most probably only help the next victims of ALS.

She graduated from Longwood College in 1983, accepting a commission in the US Army 2nd LT Transportation Corps. She served with honor, determination and integrity until after the end of Desert Storm. She then turned her formidable mind, drive and determination to the family restaurant and raising her two daughters Danielle and Kait.  Those of you who worked with Tanya knew just how formidable her drive and determination could be.
