Tanya was born September 25,1970 in Odessa, Texas and was the daughter of Carl and Pat Shields. She grew up in a full house with two sisters and four brothers, whom she loved dearly. In 1993, Tanya married the love of her life, her husband Robert Mullins; they’ve been together 31 years, have three boys and raised a beautiful family of five. Tanya was a devoted Wife, Mother and Maw; she loved her entire family fiercely, but especially her boys and her grand baby. She was a lover of all things pink, “picking” or antiquing and outdoors. She loved to garden, sit by the beach and float the river, but most of all she loved to sit on the back porch in the mornings for a cup of coffee with her beloved Robert. Her favorite time of year was Christmas, she enjoyed turning the Christmas carols up and decking the halls, while sipping on a cup of homemade hot chocolate with her Saydie Ruth. Tanya could make a mean batch of fudge and Rice Krispie treats and it brought her so much joy to bless other people with her baking skills, including those homemade blueberry muffins that everyone fought over. Anything that involved family, you could count her there. She doted on her boys and was absolutely smitten to add a granddaughter to her list of spoiling!
Tanya is preceded in death by her brother Paul Gaines, Grandmother Eva Ruth Cozby, and Father Carl Shields.
