Obituary for Tanya Michelle Caylor

Caylor, Tanya Michelle (DeLima), age 41 of Highlands Ranch. Tanya passed away October 28, 2014, after a devastating fight with leukemia. Her brother and mother were at her side at the time of her passing at Presbyterian St Luke's Hospital in Denver. She was a wonderful mother, wife, a loving daughter, sister and friend to anyone who knew her. Tanya was born July 4, 1973, in Poughkeepsie, New York. She grew up in Vestal, New York, where her family lived until the early 1990's, when they moved to Rochester, MN. Following her high school graduation and her father Don's retirement from IBM, her family moved to Denver. She graduated from college in 1997 and married Chris Caylor in September 1998. They have two daughters, Melanie, born in 2001, and Danielle, born in 2003. They were the light of Tanya's life. Tanya is survived by Chris, Melanie, Danielle, her mother Phyllis, and brothers Steve and Donald John (D'Jay). Tanya was predeceased by her father Don, who passed away on July 2, 2014. One of Tanya's favorite sayings was 'the best things in life aren't things.' A breast cancer survivor, she had a gift for lifting the spirits of everyone she met and finding the silver lining in any situation. Her strength and determination to beat cancer will be a lasting inspiration to all who knew her. Her passing was sudden and has left a void in our heart and our lives. We love her, we miss her very much and will honor her life each and every day.
